    Arrow Paragraphs not aligned - CSS weirdness

    Internet Explorer 6 on Windows creates a spacing problem where the paragraphs do not lining up correctly. If you take a look (http://nesci.us/new.htm), the unordered list in the floated sidebar seems to be the culprit. I cannot figure out why this is happening as the unordered list and list items contain no margins or padding (http://nesci.us/scripts/new.css).

    I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thank you!

    I've looked at the site in both Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 and IE 6.0 and I'm not sure what the problem is - they look very similar to me.

    Hi,

    As S7even pointed out its the "IE Three Pixel Text-Jog" bug which affects content next to floats.

    Floats make room for themselves by applying padding to surrounding elements to move them away. IE seems to add 3px more for content that is alongside the float than it does for content that extends below.

    Afaik there is no solution to this other than to set a width on the centre content. As you have a set width on the outer anyway, it shouldn' matter so I think the problem can be avoided by applying a width of 542px to your #content element.

    Hope this helps.

    Paul
