I have been working on a CSS based layout to redesign a very old site of
mine. I have encountered problems with the width of a div changing
depending on if the text contained in it is italic or not. This problem
only presents itself in IE 5/6, with Mozilla and Opera rendering the page
as expected. I have not ben able to test the problem on Mac browsers.
An example of the problem can be seen at:
with the CSS for the page being at:
Removing the font-style: italic; from the stylesheet for the blockquote
tag makes the content div line up as desired.
Does anyone know of a work arround for this problem, or is it just one of
the things we have to live with?
