Hi all,

I need ur help, I got problem when I use margin-left for my left column in my page.
I preview in FF and IE7 everything is OK (the position is what I expected) , when I preview it in IE6 the 2 column (left column and right column) quiet far to the right.
Here is the code :

.left{
float:left;
margin-top:8px;
width:355px;
margin-left:8px;
margin-right:12px;

}

IE6 interpret "margin-left:8px" quiet differently than FF/IE7 do.
Can anyone help me to solve this?

many thanks

IE6 shouldn't interpret margins differently, unless you're experiencing the class 'double margin' bug which you'd solve here by adding 'display:inline' to '.left'. If not the have you got some content inside that's pushing it too far out?

At this point it'd probably be useful to make a reduced testcase - make a copy of the page then start ripping out all unnecessary code until the problem goes away. That'll give you an indication of what exactly is going wrong.
