    Hi all, I've got this weird problem with IE:
    http://www.MyKid2.org/IsItMeOrIE.html

    Scroll the page and the text next to the image goes crazy...
    but it's such basic stuff, any idea what's going on ?

    .... or does it seem OK on your computer ?

    This is a known bug. I can't remember what the solution is but you should
    not be using align anyway. Such things are done with CSS now. Float the
    image left and the problem may disappear.

    Cheers

    I remember it applying to any floated content, not just images with the
    align attribute. I think the solution involved giving the floated
    content a margin, but I'm not sure.

    Seems to me <img> with align=left is pretty much equivalent to
    float:left. IE6 has a major float bug that causes text to disappear:

    On my computer, with IE6 for Windows XP, the page contains only two
    lines of text when loaded ('Web-page Problems' and the line between the
    two images). When I scroll down, more text appears. I don't think the
    problem lies with the image being aligned left of the text, since the
    first white line above the image acts the same. When I save the source
    and open the page without the stylesheet, all of the text is displayed.
    So something in your stylesheet must cause this. It may still be an IE6
    bug.

    Thanks, I created a class 'leftimg' with 'float:left' property, then
    declared my 'img' as being of that class, instead of using 'align:left'...
    ....but it made not one bit of difference :-(

    Note: I always beieved in "Keep It Simple"...
    Wasn't 'align' just a whole lot simpler and perhaps still better supported
    by the average browser ? ;-)

    Thanks for that URL!

    ....'struth!
    ....so now all our HTML needs to contain bodges to get round this
    abomination...

    I've put it in a table with width=100% and the img and text are each in
    their own separate 'td'.
    .... gives me better control of position anyway ;-)
