    Strange IE6 background position bug

    See bottom of page. The background image in footer is displaced 5px to the right (IE6 only).


    http://background1.simplrweb.com


    Can be fixed by using:

    background:url(files/images/footer_bg.png) -5px 0 no-repeat;

    in a conditional IE6 stylesheet but I was wondering if this is documented and why is this happening. Any ideas?

    IE6 is a buggy piece of crap that did not come close to properly rendering web pages according to standards released at the time (back in 2001). Hardly nobody uses IE6 anymore. You are best to not even support it.
