    Overlap problem in Netscape 7/Mac

    As you can see in the below screen capture, the blue column overlaps the text rather than the text wrapping around it. It works fine in just about every other browser except NS7/Mac or Moz 1.1/Mac.

    The live page is here

    The blue column is floated left.

    Works fine here in MozillaFirebird 0.7/WinXP. How do things look in more recent versions of Moz on Mac? It's possible that this is just a bug in Moz that's been fixed in the year since 1.1.

    Yeah in Moz 1.3 I think it's fine. It also occurs in Opera 7 on Windows, I think.

    Gday Steve,

    Yep had a look at this one and a bit of play. If you change your style for p.body-text by removing the position element like so...

    p.body-text {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    It should work fine in all browsers. I did a quick test in IE, Opera, Mozilla and NS and it come up trumps, although using XP. You may like to add this: padding: 0 5pt 0 3pt; in place of the padding: 0; I think it would help a little on the positioning.

    BTW, great looking site.

    Cheers

    Yep, only problem is that positioning is needed to counteract IE's peakaboo bug... maybe I can find a way to hide that rule from everyone but IE?
