    Help Have I mentioned I hate Internet Explorer???

    Sooo...I'm working on making some minute changes to the homepage...well, not terribly minute...We're working on changing the way we do Featured Maps...and that's going to involve making them a bit more frequently as well as drawing a bit more attention to them as a whole. To start with, I'm changing the homepage to show the last 3 featured maps as opposed to the ONE featured map. It cheapens the victory for the most recent feature, but it sweetens it for all of them as they get more face time now.

    I'm making the homepage a little more content rich, yet still driven by the forums themselves...I'm doing a news summary on top of the most recent posts (mainly to help thicken the right side up)...and while testing it I noticed that my left and right sides are NOT lining up in IE 6 and 7...I can't figure out why, but it works fine in Firefox...SO...if anyone wants to check out the homepage and its CSS, and let me know whats causing that crap, I'd be very appreciative...otherwise, bare with me as I work on the homepage.

    Try reducing your right-hand column to 49%. I had the same problem with a site I set up a while ago. For some reason, IE reserves a portion of the viewport width, so the second column doesn't actually have 50% of the viewport left, resulting in the unwanted wrap.

    Also, double check your nesting. Though I did not verify, it looks like there may be a div not properly nested (or without a closing tag) and ie, freaks out over that stuff some time.

    That worked...but I'm not sure I liked the results...I have another problem if anyone knows what I can do about it.

    In IE each DIV expands in response to its content...in Firefox, not so much...I'd like to find a way to make all the divs expand to accomodate their content...but how??? Here's a pic...IE on left, FireFox on right.

    I've checked my nesting ridiculously...I'll update the code to put the /divs on their own lines to prove it...

    You have a height of 138px specified on .NewsFeature. IE may be ignoring it, but FF quite properly is not. This looks like an odd case of IE's broken behavior giving you what you want when it really shouldn't.
