    This bug is driving me crazy Smiley

    View this in IE and in any standards-compliant browser and spot the difference.

    Here's the Reference Rendering for those who don't have a 90% CSS2.1 compliant browser.

    Does anyone know any workarounds?

    It is to do with the fact that IE positions items relative to the containing absolute positioned or floated block element.

    The only fix I can think of is to set a width on the containing div, unfortunately, when you set it to '100%' the box ends up too large.

    Until IE7, I don't think this will work in IE.

    Is the bug fixed in IE7?

    I think it is, but maybe someone who has IE7 can confirm this?

    I doubt it. IE7 Beta 1's rendering engine is "Trident 4.5", we'll see the first version of "Trident 5" in IE7 Beta 2.

    It's still there, but that's probably because not many changes were done in the rendering engine of IE7 Beta 1. I believe IE7 Beta 2 will implement more drastic changes.

    This, perhaps?
