Bizarre IE6 CSS error - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi all, I have the weirdest thing going on... it's hard even to describe, but bascically, IE6 seems to interpret differently the margins/padding it is applying as it moves down the page. But only for my text elements. If you look at the headers footers and edge of the text (which is supposed to be justified!) here, you will see what I mean: [url]http://www.nooey.co.uk/testground/index.html[/url] this .css is here: [url]http://www.nooey.co.uk/testground/nooey.css[/url] Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated... I have tried everything I can think of at the moment... Many thanks, Mat...

    Default Bizarre IE6 CSS error

    Hi all,

    I have the weirdest thing going on... it's hard even to describe, but
    bascically, IE6 seems to interpret differently the margins/padding it is
    applying as it moves down the page. But only for my text elements.

    If you look at the headers footers and edge of the text (which is supposed
    to be justified!) here, you will see what I mean:

    this .css is here:

    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated... I have tried
    everything I can think of at the moment...

    Many thanks,

    That's really weird :) Try putting the correct DOCTYPE in and see if that
    works.

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

    Hi Diana,

    Thanks for replying. I tried the doctype as you wrote it, but no joy.
    However, having shuffled things around, I worked out that it was a
    combination of not having set widths for the divs and IE's apparent dislike
    of my left colummn. Still, having redone it a bit, I now have a working
    version.

    I, until now, have just used th doctype that Dreamweaver coughs up... is
    this wrong? I have no real idea about doctypes at all...

    Thanks again,

    Mat.

    The doctype DW puts in is just kinda generic. Don't use it. I've changed the
    default page that DW opens up (HTML) in the Configuration folder so it always
    opens with the correct doctype now. Although, I can't remember the last time I
    created a site in HTML (been going at XHTML, which has the correct doctype on
    it, for some time now).

    If you're going to continue making sites in HTML, I'd change the default html
    page to have the correct doctype on it if I were you. If you don't know how to
    do that let me know and I'll walk you through it :)
