Okay, first things first, I'll include a image so you can see what I am talking about. This is an issue with CSS styles.

Basicly what is occuring is in IE7, the writing is being shifted over. I want it to look like the top example, where the 'FEATURED' 'hovers' just on the top left of the image and the wording is to the right of the thumbnail.

In other browsers, it seems to be just fine. I do have
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Declared.. I will post the featured coding however! Maybe someone can give me some advice. basicly this coding LOOPS to create the actual featured listing with thumbnail and wording, etc. but what I'm really looking at I suppose is the 'style' that is declared here twice, you will see it below!
foreach($data as $d){
 
 
    echo "<li style='float:left;width:280px;list-style:none;padding:10px;margin:10px'>
    			<a href='index.php?option=website&task=view_sale&id={$d[id]}'>
    			<div style='position:absolute;margin-left:-18px;margin-top:-9px'>
    				<img src='photos/featured.gif' alt='Featured' border=0>
    			</div>
    			<img align='left' src='http://open.thumbshots.org/image.pxf?url={$d[site_name]}' border=1 hspace=10 width=120 height=90></a>
    			<div style='position:absolute;margin-left:140px;margin-top:0px'>
    			<a href='index.php?option=website&task=view_sale&id=$d[id]'>$d[site_name]</a><br>
    			For {$d[price]}$<br>
				</div>
    	 </li>";
 
 if(++$n>=2) break;
}

Hi,

Try the attached code, it should resolve the problem in IE and keep working in FireFox.

foreach($data as $d){
 
 
    echo "<li style='float:left;position:relative;width:280px;list-style:none;padding:10px;margin:10px'>
                        <a href='index.php?option=website&task=view_sale&id={$d[id]}'>
                        <div style='position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;'>
                                <img src='photos/featured.gif' alt='Featured' border=0>
                        </div>
                        <img align='left' src='http://open.thumbshots.org/image.pxf?url={$d[site_name]}' border=1 hspace=10 width=120 height=90></a>
