    hey guys, could you check this URL out
    http://www.travelconnection.com/html....css/index.htm
    in both mozilla and ie. you can see it looks quite nicely in mozilla but messed up in ie.

    the general css for this blue box is
    #lcbe {
    width: 285px;
    margin: 10 0 0 15;
    background-color: #B5CCDA;
    border: 1px solid #666666;
    padding: 10px;
    }

    i have did the additional to CSS focusing on IE with this feature
    * html #lcbe {width: 305px;}

    that does not help shorten the width.

    help? thanks.

    Make sure the * html #lcbe {width: 305px;} comes after the other css, that might be the problem as browsers will use the last instance of a class e.g.
    Code:
    * html #lcbe {width:285px}
    #lcbe {width:305px}
    This would produce a box of width 305px even in IE.

    I am confused now. You explain for *html to go after basic CSS, then you show an example of before. Which is which? Right now all the *html features for IE are at the bottom of the CSS page.

    By showing the *html before the other css i was showing what happens when you do that. Hmmmm...... I am not sure then if you have put the *html at the end. I will have a look at your code and try to get back to you.

    hey hey! problem solved. it was the header that says 'BOOK YOUR VACATION NOW!' that was at the wrong width (too long) in CSS, causing it to run on IE when Mozilla ingores this. Now I am able to work on the rest of the boxes in the index.htm

    thank you for assisting!
