I have an issue with a site I’m working on – http://www.fitnessunleashedaustin.com – where the sidebar is dropping to the bottom in IE7. I’ve played with some hacks in the CSS to fix the location of other items, but cannot figure out why I can’t get the sidebar to pull up.
the other posts I’ve checked out here don’t seem to do it either – any suggestions would be much appreciated? I’m already beyond the delivery date.
IE7 is borked! It inherited a faulty CSS box model from IE6. Hacks are definitely not a good way of dealing with this as they will bite back one day (witness the initial release of IE7). A better way way of approaching the problem is to use conditional comments to target CSS at specific versions of IE:
Meyer’s reset sheet isn’t bad. At least his sheet suggests he put some real thought into it. Beware of other reset sheets, though. Some simply use * to reset padding and margins from every element whilst others do the same thing using a humongous list of almost every element you can think of – including the p tag which promptly wrecks most designs.
