View Full Version : simple css layout problem

11-13-2007, 03:29 PM
Hi There,

Iím creating a very basic layout for a new site...but have got completely stuck with a simple css layout. I was going to just slice up a Photoshop image - but figured as it is all boxes it would be far more elegant to do it with css.

It displays ok in IE but for the life of me donít know why it wonít in FF... Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Please post your code here. :D I cannot view it. And I have viewed the page, what exactly needs to look different (I'm running FF)?

Hi, sorry code is below.

In IE the red border shows correctly it wraps the entire page, where as in FF it doesnt seem to display at the bottom or at the top - also the purple rectangle should be encased with a red border if this makes sense.

please see
