Ok this may be simple to fix, but in IE7 only (I dont have the courage to see how my site looks in IE6 aahha ) with this code

margin:0 auto;
margin-top: 130px;
background: white;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;
border:2px solid #BFBFBF;
padding: 30px;
text-shadow: 0px 1px 1px #BFBFBF;

top: 30px;
left: 50%;
width: 500px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align: center;
border: 1px solid red;
background: rgb(239, 44, 44);
font-size: 15px;
padding: 10px;

<div id="errors_login">


<div id="access_box">


without errors_login everything is showed ok, with it access_box magically loses margin-top and so errors_login goes over that div! The problem seems to be position:absolute, but why? bug?

position:absolute has a tendency to do that. I would think by giving your access_box a height and margin top it would push it down far enough to all the errors_login to not over lap.

ok the problem is that as I said access_box marnin-top in completely ignored when errors_login is displayed!
