FF vs IE Layer Positioning Problems - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Problem page: [url]www.boxnetworks.net/pos/index.htm[/url] I have encountered yet another rendering disparity between IE and FF. In IE there are gaps between vertically adjacent elements when I don't use absolute positioning. There is a reason why I am trying to avoid using absolute positioning. I had a similiar problem in horizontal positioning that was cured by including "loose.dtd" in the DOCTYPE. Thank you in advance. -Steve...

    Default FF vs IE Layer Positioning Problems

    Problem page: [url]www.boxnetworks.net/pos/index.htm[/url]

    I have encountered yet another rendering disparity between IE and FF.

    In IE there are gaps between vertically adjacent elements when I don't use
    absolute positioning. There is a reason why I am trying to avoid using absolute
    positioning.

    I had a similiar problem in horizontal positioning that was cured by including
    "loose.dtd" in the DOCTYPE.

    Thank you in advance.

    What is your question here? The page looks identical to me in IE6 and FF.

    Oh, I see. This is a known discrepancy in quirks mode with IE displaying
    the space for descenders on inline tags. The issue goes away in standards
    mode. See what happens if you change your doctype from this -

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

    to this -

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

    (I guess you need that first line all together)

    Alternatively, you could just add -

    style="display:block;"

    to the <img> tag.
