I'm having a few problems with some css/html code. The code isn't looking to bad in firefox(although it needs moving up the page a bit) but in internet explorer it looks very silly.

I think i have mucked up the divs somewhere but can't find it for the life of me. Any help will be much appreciated.

css

/* CSS Document */
body {
	background-image: url(graphics/sect-car-background.gif);
}
#nav {
	float: left;
	margin: 0px;
	border: 0px;
	width: 15%;
	

		}

	
	
	#content2 {
	float: left; 
	margin: 16%;
	border: 0px ;
	width: 50%;
	display: inline;
	
			}

	
	/* everything above is for colums */
	img {border: 1px solid; color:#000000 }
/* puts a black border round the images */
	
	p {font:"Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial; size:12px}
/*P{margin: 0px 90px 0px 100px; }*/

a:link{font-family:"Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial; size:12px color:#F5C0F7; text-decoration:none;} a:visited{font-family:"Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial; size:12px color:#C00099; text-decoration:none;}
a:hover{font-family:"Trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial; size:12px color:#C00099; text-decoration:none; cursor:pointer}

and now the html.

</body>
</html>

i think instead of div id="nav" for example you should go back into the css and make it a class

.nav {
	float: left;
	margin: 0px;
	border: 0px;
	width: 15%;
	}

<div class="nav">klkjlljklklklklklklklksdksldkslskdlsk</div>

try that and see wat happens.

THANKS GUYS :cheesy:

I see several errors:

1. The style tags go in the head part of the code, not the body. Your invalid use may be confusing browsers.

2. Something is very wrong with the second line in the code section. The quotes are mismatched.

In addition, the div method of making columns falls apart if the width of the combined columns becomes wider than the browser window.

Note that IE calculates the width of an object in a different way than most other browsers. Widths which add to 100 percent in some browsers add to 104 percent or 96 percent in other browsers, because some browsers include borders and padding when setting total width, while others exclude them.

Believe it or not, tables still do a better job.
