Hi,

I have this website which works fine but the box on right (second yellow box) is broken in IE 6. Having hard time to understand what is it thats breaking it. Works fine in IE7, FF, Safari and Opera.

http://www.paradex.co.uk/iscnew/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=80
Joomla CMS 1.0.15
<!-- MAIN BODY START -->
                <?php if ($option != 'com_frontpage' ) { ?>
                <div id="m-body">
                    <div id="mainbody-top"></div>
                    <div id="m-body-center">
                        <div id="m-body-inner">
                            <?php include_once("mainbody.php"); ?>
                         </div>
                    </div>
                    <div id="m-body-bottom"></div>
                </div>
                <?php } ?>
<!-- MAIN BODY END -->
 
 
----------------------------- CSS -----------------------------
#m-body {width: 591px; margin-left: 0px;}
#m-body-top {width: 592px; background: url(../images/content-bg-top.gif) no-repeat; height: 6px;}
#m-body-center {padding: 0; margin: 0; width: 592px; background: url(../images/content-bg-center.gif) repeat-y;}
#m-body-bottom {width: 591px; background: url(../images/content-bg-bottom.gif) no-repeat; height: 7px; margin-bottom: 10px;}
/*#textbox1 a {padding-left: 14px; margin-left: 6px; color: #545454; background: url(../images/ja-moduletable-a-hover.gif) no-repeat; font: 100% Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;}*/
#m-body-center div {padding: 5px; margin: 0;}

IE4-6/Win won't let an element have a height that is less than its line-height.
To fix this you can decrease the font-size and line-height OR use overflow:hidden.

P.S. Are you aware that your page contains XHTML and CSS errors?

Hi,

Thanks for reply, that sorted the top broken box problem. Can you please have look at this link and see why the bottom is broken. It aligns to the left side and breaks from its position where it should be. I have tried overflow:hidden but it did not work.

Also on some pages the right column breaks the layout and drops at bottom of left columns.

(all observations are in IE6)

Not too much bothered for validations at the moment, may look at that later.

Thanks
