My website here: http://www.healthnutsradio.com/index2.php has a problem in IE 6. Here are screenshots:ie6-screen1.gifie6-screen2.gifThe rightbox is supposed to float to the right of the mainbox. Is there a style I can apply that won't affect its look in IE7+ or FF?Here's the HTML code:

The answer is: only float one of the boxes, and only assign a width to the floated box.That is the real way to do floated layouts. If you want to limit the width of the other box, do so by putting both boxes into a fixed width container.

IE6 rendering div+padding+margins is different (also it adds padding, margin by default), so you have to allow for this. try adjusting the width without the !important until the box fits.#Rightbox{width: 331px !important;width: 325px;float: right;}div {margin:0; padding:0;} with set div margins, padding to 0, * {margin:0; padding:0;} will reset all elements to 0, so you will set these margins for elements such as 'p' paragraphs

I'm a little confused by this... you have 2 different widths for the #Rightbox div. I tried adjusting the width of the Rightbox, while getting rid of the float attribute and it just puts everything below the mainbox. I don't understand- do I have to adjust a margin/padding somewhere? If you look at the page now http://healthnutsradio.com/index2.php it is with the Rightbox width set to 325, and you can see it below the Mainbox.

And I have margin and padding set to 0 in the html, is that where it should be?

No, that will only affect "html" margin and padding,*{margin:0; padding:0;} is similar to wildcard and will set all elements to the declarations stated.div {margin:0; padding:0; } will affect the div only.!important is not recognised by IE6, so ignores it while other browsers will carry this declaration out.try setting margin & padding to 0 within #Rightbox.#Rightbox{width: 331px !important; /*other browser will carry out this width*/width: 325px; /*IE6 only will carry out this width setting (this is a guess, adjust until it fits) */margin:0; padding:0;float: right; /*must keep this*/}

I set the Rightbox css to this:
#Rightbox{width: 331px !important;width: 315px; /* for ie6 */margin: 0;padding: 0;float:right;}

And it produced the same result as before, only now the width:325 is starting to remove parts of the right-hand side, indicated with the arrow below:sss34.gif

OK! because making the #rightbox, and #box smaller will affect the background image displaying correctly, lets do it from a different angle. reset #Rightbox to:#Rightbox{width: 331px;float: right;}then set below to#Header{width: 1000px !important;width: 1003px;}#Wrapper{width: 1000px !important;width: 1003px;}
