	<title>Test</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/styles/styles.css" />	

	<!--[if lt IE 7]>
		<style type="text/css">
			#wrapper { height:100%; }
		</style>
	<![endif]-->
	
</head>

You have a 1 pixel black border on the content div. It shows up in Firefox and Chrome just fine. If you are not seeing it, maybe it's a browser cache issue.

I'm trying with IE and Chrome and it does not show. I'm also using Aptana Studio 3. It launches and I see the text "some content" but no borders.
