Try this in lieu of the css assigned to ".right", adjust to your taste:

.right {
margin-left: 100px

Hopefully that's more of what you were looking for...

It's acting differently in IE7 because ".fp-teaser-text p" has min-height and max-height set. Both of those properties trigger hasLayout which triggers or fixes many IE bugs.

To understand more about what hasLayout is, read this:

One solution would be to move the ".fp-teaser-image" <div>s inside the ".fp-teaser-text" <div>s.

I tried to put ".fp-teaser-image" s inside the ".fp-teaser-text" s. as you suggested but it didn't work, same problem. So I got rid of max and min-height property and the problem disapeared. So I still have to solve problem of making those boxes of same hight.

Sorry. I forgot to add that the min-height and max-height declarations would need to be moved to the rule for ".fp-teaser-text".

You didn't need to create a separate question.
