    text creeping across page, css ie bug?

    Hi all,

    I'm new'ish' to HTML & CSS, but am persevering & want to avoid using tables for my layout.

    I'm having a problem with 'divs' full of text in the main content of my page. They are displayed one below the other, and look ok in firefox, but in IE each consecutive block of text creeps to the left.

    the site is online at the moment, at:

    ******

    the css file is at

    ******

    I've managed to suss out quite a few things about CSS just by scouring the excellent forums here, but this issue has finally got me stuck.

    anybody know why this is happening in IE? Is it related to an IE bug, or am I missing something?

    Any advice or help greatly appreciated.

    by the way, dont let the site content scare you, its just temporary stuff while I play with layout & get my head around CSS

    thanks for looking,

    thanks Mr BonRouge, thats done the trick. I just added a bottom border, don't want to start using the Holly hack, IE7 & all that.

    For all the google & forum searches I did before posting, i didn't use the term 'creeping text' until I had to think of a title for this thread. D'oh! I knew the answer would be under my nose, as always.

    I can now continue on my (unintentional) quest to find more IE bugs : )

    Many thanks for your response,

    mistersmith...
