Board Logo

IE vs. Firefox alignment
dbarracl - 12/20/2006 at 10:15 AM

I recently upgraded to the gold menu so I could align the menu using relative positioning to the middle of the page using a simple table. We had the free version before, and used absolute positioning, with the menu starting at a specific vertical pixel position. The menu needs to be positioned underneath a logo, and be lined up with a background image.

The problem is that now that the menu is contained within a table (which using relative positioning it looks nice and centered), it is off by a few pixels when you view it in IE versus Firefox. It seems like even if I have the border set to 0, IE still adds in an extra pixels. Is there a workaround for this?

Or, alternatively, is there a way to position the menu using relative positioning for it's horizontal placement, but absolute positioning for its vertical positioning (without using a table)?

Thanks in advance.

The positioning is the same for both directions. The difference in positioning may be caused by some CSS settings interpreted differently by two browsers. Turn on the table's border to see where the offset comes from (outside the table or inside table). This will narrow the search. Submit a support ticket attaching your files if you need assistance.
