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. My solution is simpler: give the container div a line-height. The default line height of browsers appears to be around 1.1-1.2, so setting line-height to around that provides no or hardly any visual change, but cures the bug in IE. 960 Gridder - Lay out websites with ease.
