I have a site with a fixed left div holding the nav bar and a scrolling right div for the content. When I added in the code to use fckeditor as the CMS I found that the left div overlapped the editor and it was not possible to save or publish any changes to the page. Eventually I figured that if I changed the left div to position:relative instead of absolute, that the editor header showed properly. The right side was dropped down to below the last line in the left div, but I figured my end-user would cope with that.
Then I found that this wonky display is also how it shows up in IE6. So I tried putting position:absolute inside an <!--[if IE 6]> but that doesn't seem to do anything.
oh well, I still can't work it out. In order to check this, I am using the Backward Compatability Viewer from delorie.com and telling it to look at MSIE 6.0 - this change you have suggested doesn't appear to make any difference. Is this site just unreliable?
All the people who were telling me they couldn't view the site properly now say it's fixed, so I'll call it a day and not bother trying to get it to work in IE 5.
Thanks for your help. I posed this question on 3 different forums and got 3 totally different answers. But yours was the solution which worked. Keep up the good work.
