    Hi - I'm new here and new at web design.

    For my first site I used a Dreamweaver template so that I could begin to learn CSS. Well, the site is almost finished but there's a problem with the content on the index page.

    In IE 5.1 on a Mac the content on the main page is cut off when the browser window is not 100% open. Of course, it looks good on every other browser and OS EXCEPT this one. What am doing wrong? Is there anything I can add to the CSS to make it not cut off? I have a feeling this is a very simple question.

    Anyway, here are the layout divs:

    padding: 10px 0px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #cccccc;
    width: 100%;

    position: absolute;
    width: 165px;
    margin: 0 85% 0 0;
    padding: 0px;
    background-color: #eeeeee;
    border-right: 1px solid #ccc;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;


    position: absolute;
    left: 240px;
    top: 60px;
    width: 75%;
    padding-bottom: 40px;
    padding-top: 15px;

    Thanks in advance!

    missing semicolin (

    i have a feeling the browser is not rendering properly because the code was missing a charecter or something of the sort also some browsers may not render even perfectly valid code so check for spelling errors and fix the following and see if it helps:
    .style1 {font-size: 214%;}
    .style2 {font-size: 150%;}
    .style4 {font-size: medium;}
    .style5 {color: #990033;}
    .style6 {font-size: 150%; color: #990033;}
    i really don't know if it will help if not then it may be the browser not the code ...
    the change i made was in the link you provided and i added semi colins to the end of your style statements also you might want to make sure that one style is not overrideing the other...

    Mac IE is not supported by Microsoft anymore, so it has plenty of rendering issues.

    I would guess that it is a bug in that version of IE, and if it works in everything else there may not be a lot you can do about it.

    Unless there is a web guru lurking on this forum that knows about all these little fixes and workarounds.

    What I am saying is basically the same as Eddy, above - rendering issues
