    form fields not working in IE6

    Hi Guys

    I'm having a problem with the form on this page (link removed)

    It works fine in firefox. In IE6 however, it is not possible to type in the form fields.

    I'm pretty sure its a CSS issue but not sure what is causing it.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    This is caused by a bug with the alpha image loader and you need to add the following code (second post today with this bug ):

    Code:
    #contact input,#contact textarea {position:relative;z-index:999}
    This is the second post today with this bug

    You should also note that the xml declaration trips ie6 into quirks mode and you will be using the broken box model among other things. Its optional anyway so you should omit it and IE6 will revert to standards mode. However it looks as though you have coded with quirks mode in mind which will mean making the appropriate css changes.
