[css-d] IE6 and overflow

Sent by Aliotsy Andrianarivo on 25 January 2002 21:09


Hi all!  well, it sure was a nice thing finding the list on zeldman.com 
because I've been wrangling with this all week and nobody seems to know a 
solution.

I'm a newbie to CSS working on a site with the structure made up entirely of 
divs, as opposed to tables. The idea is to create an effective liquid 
design.

http://www.thethousand.net/remix/index.php - page in question
http://www.thethousand.net/remix/1000.css - stylesheet

The current set-up has a "back" div that holds an image. The image width is 
set to "100%," with any overflow set to hidden. This covers up any vertical 
overflow outside of the div. The back div also contains three other 
divs--"navigation," "main," and "vign."

My problem is with IE6. For some reason, it isn't applying the overflow 
setting correctly. For the "back" div, it treats overflow as shown, when it 
should be hidden. Also, for the "main" div, it treats overflow as shown when 
it should be set to "auto."

Another problem is that the "navigation" and "vign" divs are cut off too 
early, though I consider this a minor issue in comparison.

Does anyone know what is going on? The page looks fine in IE5.5 and NN6.2.

I have screenshots of the problem available.

looks approximately the same in NN6.2)

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Aliotsy =)
