Hi guys,

I was wondering if you could help me with a problem I'm having

This is the site I'm building:
http://testdomain.hopemissioncentre.com/

If you view the site in IE6 and scroll right down to the bottom, in the footer, there are some stray characters "ved." - it comes from the last 4 characters of the "All rights reserved." and it's always the last 4 characters of that line.

Would you guys have any why IE6 shows this?

Victor

That's a strange one. Try playing around with the float, width and height settings for this id. I'm not sure why you are using a float here, so try removing it and see what happens in IE. You might also need to play around with the width, as IE tends to be off a few pixels from other browsers with the way it does padding, borders, and margins.

Code:
#footertext
background: #FFFFFF none repeat scroll 0%;
border:0px solid #FF0000;
color:#000000;
float:left;
font-size:10px;
height:26px;
text-align:center;
width:760px;

I've had this problem a few times before. It's caused by comments that you may have in your CSS code.

Hope that helps.

Cheers.

Awesome thanks guys!
I haven't done extensive testing, but perhaps if I get rid of any unnecessary floats this problem wouldn't occur.

In the meantime I'll use more PHP commenting instead.

I used to have issues like this all of the time - I just started using Yahoo's Developer Tools (particular fonts-reset-grids.cs). Rarely have crazy CSS issues now.
