    IE Is being a PITA: positioning...

    Code:
    .main {
    width: 692px;
    height: 80px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: black;
    border-width: 0px 1px 1px 0px;
    padding: 4px;
    vertical-align: top;
    }
    .main_left {
    width: 546px;
    right-margin: 150px;
    position: static;
    }
    .main_right {
    vertical-align: top;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: black;
    border-width: 0px 0px 0px 1px;
    margin-left: 555px;
    position: absolute;
    }
    Code:
    <div class="main">
    <div class="main_left">
    this is just some random text ok.
    nothing out of the ordinary!!!!!
    Internet explorer sucks....
    WHY CANT THEY MAKE IT GOOD!?<br />
    IE is aweful though. CSS just doesn't work right!
    </div>
    <div class="main_right">
    <strong>Powered by:</strong><br />
    </div>
    </div>
    What it looks like in IE: http://www.xsidefx.com/argh.gif

    What I want to do!: You see the Powered By: division...I want that to be level with the text on the left vertically, not at the bottom underneath it!

    I had it working all fine and dandy while viewing in Firebird then I switched to IE and there we have it, it went wrong, so I changed a few things and right now I have it looking the same in both firebird and IE, so I figured that would help. Any ideas on what I should do?

    Well, after playing around with it for a while, I've fixed it.

    Sometimes I wish IE would just be discontinued and people be forced to use firebird...who's with me? .

    Nope. Choice is good. I wish the playing field was level in terms of both standards support and availability of browsers, don't get me wrong, but I don't want to see IE go away.

    Well, either IE goes or I go!

    Er, yeah, well I just wish IE would support CSS properly, it's really annoying.
