Argh. I need help with an IE .css issue (5 posts)

    Hi. I just started putting together a site based on the 'pool' theme. I'm having a .css issue with IE, and I was hoping that somebody could tell me what's going on.

    The site is: http://www.twohelp.org

    In Windows, using Firefox, it appears how I want it to appear. However, in IE 6, there's extra white space at the bottom. Can somebody tell me what's causing this and how to fix it?

    Thanks. It's so frustrating that they don't render sites similarly.

    To me it seems that whole search area/credits area is needlessly complex in terms of CSS. You might have better luck creating a containing DIV for that entire intended box area and positioning that than the current method. I suspect that the positioning problem has something to do with the odd search box formatting itself, but I can't say for certain.

    What would be more normal search box formatting?

    This is from my site, which I really didn't mess with from the default, at least as much as I can remember:

    <form method="get" id="searchform" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
    <input type="text" class="inputbox" name="s" id="s" size="15" />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="searchsubmit" value="<?php _e('Search'); ?>" /><a href="sitemap.php" title="<?php _e('SiteMap'); ?>">Site Map</a>

    Sorry, I did make a change and added the link at the bottom for the sitemap, but that is something you can add or subtract - but it makes a good example.

    I had something similar, but upon clicking in the box, the text 'search' didn't disappear, so I yanked it from the form and moved it to the outside.
