I hope this is a basic question for everyone, but it's something I can't seem to figure out.

I am using Dreamweaver, I have a Layer positioned - absolute. But for some reason, at the end of my layer the text is being cut off when I preview in the browsers. All of them - not just IE.

Anyone know the common causes of this?

Thanks for the help.

Is it possible that you have a height defined on the layer?

If there is a height specified in the properties, and the CSS "overflow" property is set to "hidden", then the content of the layer is clipped, and no scrollbar is provided.

I guess either try eliminating the height if there is one set (leave the height field blank) or try adding a css rule for that layer in the CSS panel that declares "overflow: visible".

This will cause the content to spill outside of the container and be visible. Hope this helps.
