I've recently been having a problem like this as well involving floated images,
which (being more ofa pragmatist than a purist) evetually led me to a layout
table, much to my shame and consternation.
I was making a series of catalog pages which conssited of an image and short
descriptive text, wrapped in div element to provide an border. (see:
http://www.betsyrae.com/catalog/ethel.html for an example.) When I was floating
the images to get this same effect, the border wrapped around the text, but not
the image. At the time, I was checking NN7 and Safari (both on my Mac), so I am
not sure of the full list of browsers it would have affected.
However, I have looked at the above link in NN7 and Safari and (of course) it
doesn't have the escape-floats bug that appears in IE. Seeing this, I promptly
tried wrapping my images and text in divs and floating -those-, and the same
What is different about my code that I am getting this error in NN and Safari
when it is (usually) an IE trouble?
