Full Version: IE problems with Div background images
HTMLHelp Forums > Web Authoring > Cascading Style Sheets

I am new to designing websites and am hoping someone can help. I have a website that I am trying to position elements with background images. These images line up in FF and Safari but not in IE6 or IE 7. There is a considerable gap that should not exist. I also have a problem in IE where the strip I use for my background image is visible under my footer. Again, only in IE. Can anyone help?

I recommend that you start by fixing the markup errors and CSS errors reported by the online tools.
