If a div is given a background colour and contains floated items (floated using CSS’s float or HTML’s align on images), things can go very wrong in Internet Explorer – screenshot of my examples page in IE6, compared with how it should look. Internet Explorer 6 sometimes hides some or all of the main content of the div (examples 2 and 5 have their titles missing); additionally in Internet Explorer 5 and 6, if the container is given position: relative, the floated items disappear (example 4). Contrary to other reports, no spacer div of any sort is necessary to provoke this bug – none is in use in the examples given here. Scrolling down to hide the missing section and then back up ‘cures’ the problem, but this isn’t exactly a viable solution.

After a while I noticed how hard it became to make sure everything looked exactly how they intended it, especially in the different browsers. 960 Gridder is cross-browser compliant and works well in Internet Explorer 6/7/8, Firefox 2/3 and Chrome. Safari 4 Beta and Opera 9 is also working as expected and it should work in Safari 2.x-3.x also.
