Mysterious Sliding Calendar (5 posts)

    Hi there,
    I am working on a new CSS for my blog - and I am having a very strange problem. Every time I mouse over the Login link, my calendar scoots down the page. I am using the latest version of IE 6.0. I have looked at the page in Firefox and an older version of Mozilla, and this does not seem to be a problem in either one of those. I have looked really closely at the code for the calendar and the login link, and I can't find anything that seems strange. (I am admittedly new at this). Here is the link to my site: http://www.mountains-to-molehills.com/wordpress/index.php
    Thank you for any help you might be able to offer.

  2. The bad news: I have no idea what's going on, but fixing this might help: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mountains-to-molehills.com%2Fwordpress%2Findex.php
    The good news: You're just one error away from having completely valid XHTML. Your CSS is valid so the problem shouldn't be there....but you never know. I'm not a CSS expert myself, but the validators push me in the right direction.

    Strangely enough - Purely through trial and error, I discovered it was the width tag on my div#menu setting. I had it set to an absolute 190 px - and as soon as i commented it out, it was happy. Go figure?
    Can anyone tell me why this might have happened? Or is it just a complete mystery?

    I can give only the simple answer: Internet Explorer.

    Thanks Kafkaesqi - if at some point I decide I actually NEED to have a fixed width menu, I will certainly try the html space idea - IE really seems to dislike those empty lines of data. Always happier with a space there :p And always the last thing I think of.
