    Footer Text Not Behaving Properly

    Buongiorno from 8 degrees C wetherby UK :-)

    On this page & illustrated here: some of the text highlighted displaced and filled some of the space next to the image thumbnails.

    Now it was on a version of IE in my local gym club but i was unable to see what version, I suspect the problem was caused by not containing elements in divs and giving widths to floated elements. Thinking this as an experiment I tweaked this page:

    So my question(s) is please:
    1. "What version of IE is causing the text to misplace"?
    2. "Will the fix I applied on page stop the problem appearing again on the unknown version of IE."

    Grazie Tanto,
    I have had a perfectly wonderful
    evening, but this wasn't it-

    I would say your best option is to remove the float: left on the <ul> and use overflow: hidden instead:

    p.thumb, ul.thumbnails {
    margin: 0 0 10px 0;
    padding: 0;
    float: left;
    text-align: center;
    background-color: white;
    line-height: 1em;
    list-style: none;
    width: 560px;
    overflow: hidden;
