I have a web page that uses float: left and clear left to stack columns.
This page works fine on firefox but not on ie8.
Columns are like this:
Where each number or xxx represents a div. Odd numbers have float : left; clear: left;, and even number only have a float left;. The xxx represents another div with only clear: left;.
On ie8, however:
Note that the divs are found in the code in the order of the first example. The float: left;'s are going about the cleared elements!
However, notice once we hit an xxx it is reset. Therefore I assume one way to fix it would be insert a blank div that is only clear: left;ed in front of the odd numbers. But I do not want to do this! Isn't there a sane way to accomplish this in both browsers?
I can post a url if necessary.
