    hasLayout

    Hi,

    I have recently been looking at the concept of layout that IE have kindly implemented into their browser - and something that may explain some bugs.

    I'm having trouble understanding certain things.

    Can someone explain how the following cause problems:

    1. Elements with layout not shrinking to fit
    2. Floats being auto-cleared by layout elements
    3. Relatively positioned elements not gaining layout
    4. Margins not collapsing between elements with layout
    5. The hit area of block-level links without layout only covering text.

    Cheers

    Briefly before. I'm working my way through CSS Mastery, and hopefully looking to improve my knowledge by at least 40%, its interesting, and good practice to try and understand why a bug occurs, and then possibly understand how a fix is applied.
