    Negative Margin in IE

    Hi guys,

    I know the negative margin doesnt seem to work in IE but does perfectly in Firefox, I'm trying to move the footer up some so the borders touch nicely, you'll see what I mean, in Firefox in touches nicely to the footer but in IE it doesnt there is a white space on the far right hand one, is there an easy fix for this...

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi, the problem is is that it is collapsing the margin since the negative margin is going thru a cleared element. No matter how big the negative margin is it will never go up .

    I see no reason why you even need the clearing divs in the HTML so delete this
    Code:
    	<div class="clear"></div>
    
    		
    		<div id="bottom" class="clearfix">
    		</div><!-- end bottom -->
