|Padding problem between IE and Mozilla|
padding problem between IE and Mozilla

I apologize if this has been explained before but I'm a little new to the specifics of CSS.
I created a style that is 150px wide with 10px of padding all around, and the background color is Red.
When I view it in Internet Explorer, the red box is exactly 150 pixels wide. When I view it in Mozilla, the red box is 170 pixels wide.
What is causing this?

Hello tomhouy...Welcome to Webmasterworld [webmasterworld.com]
You have encountered the infamous IE Box Model problem.. IE is wrong Moz is correct
the specifics take a bit of time to understand...but it's been explained in this post [webmasterworld.com] and there are various workarounds discussed there too....

This only affects IE5.5 for Windows... The truth is, IE is wrong - all other browsers are right.
For more information about how height and width works, consult this thread [webmasterworld.com] (message 38)

Thank you all for your help! This has been driving me nuts. I have a couple books on CSS but never really understood what that box model hack was until reading this site. :)
