    Cannot Highlight The Body Copy Text

    I have an issue when trying to highlight the text in the DIV content when using Internet Explorer. Can anyone tell me why? I am able to highlight the text (to copy it) when using Firefox or Safari. Here is the link.

    If you temporarily take out the line
    HTML Code:
    <!--[if lte IE 6]><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="includes/css/png_fix.css" /><![endif]-->
    can you then select the text with IE?

    Try
    Code:
    #navigation{ overflow:hidden;}
    It is the nav-div that is covering the content, I think it is expanding to fit an auto width div with a text-line inside.

    Why are the content absolute positioned instead of floated right?

    I am able to select the main body of text from this web site using Fire Fox. I don't know about internet explorer but you can successfully do it using the Fire Fox browser, if that helps.

    The reason I suspect the png is because with IE6 most of the text isn't visible let alone selectable.

    Are you able to select portions of the first line but not the rest?
