Specs: Windows XP
I have a basic layout that i am working on. I am attempting to use a background that will tile horizontally within a div tag. I have the a background image for the page that should be aligned where the background image in my div ends. It looks good in Mozilla and Safari. In IE it is not aligned properly. What is my fix for this problem?

Hi, it's quite common during web development to see WYSIWYG on FireFox only to find that formatting is somewhat off in IE. Some things that I check for when this happens are extra spaces and formatting. For example, you'll want to check through to make sure you remove any additional list, bullet points, returns, new paragraph and similar items that would format fine in FireFox, but add extra unwanted spaces and throw off the formatting in IE. Another tip is check that your div definitions are supported in both IE and FireFox. Finally, if you have exhausted your search for what is throwing off your formatting between the two browsers, you can always create tables and spacer images and manually adjust the layout until it appears how you like it in both IE and FireFox. Spacer images are image files in the same background color as the area that you are formatting. These come in handy when you are trying to align text of varying length in two columns within the same table.
