I am currently creating a master page with a fixed with of 960px, under the header i have a left column, a placeholder, and a right column, all 3 are set to float:left; and have fixed widths of respectively 150 , 615 and 195 pixels. The page displays perfectly in chrome and firefox but i need to use the "older browser compatibility" button in IE9 for it to display correctly, other wise both the placeholder and right column get kicked under the left column.
At width 965px IE9 allows the placeholder and right column back up where they belong. but the rest of the site thinner so my question here is : Why is Internet Explorer 9 messing up with my div's fixed width by 5 pixels & how can i fix this?
I have another css problem concerning this very same page but I will create another thread please check it out too.
