    Yes, but easy to solve. Just don't use the entire width of the
    window (not 5x 20% or 4x25% width for instance) when using
    floating columns, or as you said, take out the comments :)

    > I dont see any difference...


    Only shows on certain window widths, if you just pull the side
    of the window from left to right, you'll see the effect come and
    go.

    IE and even Firefox sometimes render content a little differently
    depending HOW you tab (indent) your markup, which really IS stupid. I
    had a fault earlier this week where if I had a line break between
    </div></div> IE would add a space on the page. No reason at all. TO my
    horror I discovered Firefox shifted the content a few pixels if I
    commented out the trailing </div> as well! WHY do browser parse
    unprinted linebreaks (and, only sometimes). It's annoying!
