    I have been working on a theme, and I have the layout pretty much the way it is wanted in FF, but I cannot get it to display properly in IE.
    I have been doing my best to keep the layout via css, but I know there are differences between ff, ie, opera etc etc.

    TIA
    (by the way this is mangled up version of LetterHead theme)

    **Edit**
    I suppose I should mention what the problem is, the header image displays fine, the image in the sidebar is placed half a mile below where it should be, then there is a fair amount of spacing between the image on top of the side bar and the background image that follows beneath it.

    first, look at all the templates you find in IE not Firefox, then you will see what works and fails before you modify it. most if not all of the horizontal nav bar templates seem to fail in IE or less then recent version of IE. Use firefox for stability but when creating realize everyone else isn't using it so you need to design for the majority.

    Fist, no kidding. That is the approach I am following, and that is why I posted asking for some pointers. Obviously if I have a working theme up and it works in one browser, and I am asking for some help on fixing a few errors for another browser I may have followed some logical progression in laying things out.
    Button bars, navigation, bells and whistles are not my concern at the moment, trivial and easy to fix (for multiple browsers, takes a small amount of tweaking) my major concern is getting the structural items (three images) to layout correctly.
