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.
