    im developing a new portfolio site shop.neue.co.uk and it looks smart in ie6
    and moz, but when viewed in ie5 the menu (which is at the foot of the panel)
    dissapears off the bottom of the screen...

    anyone care to have a look and tell me where im going wrong

    thanks

    I had a head scratcher (not hard since I've been doing CSS for a week
    today...) in my web site that if I used divs or spans for text links,
    the whole web page content would display differently. Divs seemed to
    work best. Now that everything almost works in IE 6, I'm able to
    start thinking about checking in other browsers, and learning how to
    write for other browsers. The validation REALLY helps, but some
    issues the validator has I disagree with. Again, all I learned I
    learned because of what I read here, including following suggested
    links. My hat's off to you all.

    Is there a web site that simulated what a web page looks like in other
    browsers?

    Thanks for the URL. I think I tried that once before, but it didn't
    work, like the page was down or connection cocked up, etc. I'll pay 10
    bucks any day to use browsercam after that demo! I was able to refine
    my page in a few hours to work cross platform except for Opera 6.0
    Mac, which just displayed a blank page! I emailed Opera support, and
    in detail explained that it does work in Opera 6.05 Mac, and in all
    other platforms, is 6.0 Mac superseded? This all pretty much is a
    mystery to me, but the page is looking good not. My one last item that
    I know of is how to get a gif to position itself ALWAYS in the bottom
    left corner, even after a screen resize. Any links? I can't quite put
    it together.
