Hey guys, I request some help here. I’m making a new template to submit, it’s almost complete but making sure stuff works right in ie6 etc.

The problem I have is that the sidebar for the blog page here:

http://lenevia.com/gears/blog.html

here’s an image also:

is not floating right in ie6 and is like floated right but at the bottom of the content that is on the left.

It works perfect in all other browsers including ie7.

Thanks in advance for thos who’ll help me out here.

i really dint look at your code but before i read this article http://warpspire.com/tipsresources/web-production/css-column-tricks/ i had no idea how IE6 manages floats and padding. This would most certainly help you fix this problem in particular and future ones to come. so i highly advice you read it. Helped me out!

Typically when I encounter this sort of problem (which I do alot) the problem is with small IE bugs such as the double margins problem or the fact that IE does not read something that is 10px with a padding of 15px as 40px wide total, but just 10px. Nevertheless, I think the problem your having is the double margins issue. This is an article from Chris Coyier on the subject: IE CSS Bugs That’ll Get You Every Time. Hope it helps.

Yep, you have paddings in the same direction as your floats. IE6 doesn’t like that and you have what the guys above said. Display inline on your main containers should fix you up.
