    Expanding boxes are expanding but text underneath not dropping


    I'm using expandable blocks (when you click on a heading a block of text drops down to read) and in IE6 they look fine but in IE7 and Firefox 2 when a Heading is clicked the text underneath the clicked heading drops but the other headings underneath do not drop to accommodate the text from the heading above it. Therefore the look on the web page is text over text which is not readable. I've attached a snapshot of what this looks like.

    These webpages are in a frameset, in case that makes any differience. As part of troubleshooting this problem I added the following to the stylesheet but it didn't make a difference:

    expandingblocktemplate {
    Can anyone suggest a fix for this or an opinion on what is causing this issue?

    Not sure if this is helpful but i've provided the CSS, javascript and html of one of the pages where this problem is occuring.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.
