    I'm just coding up this site, and need a couple of corrections to get it going. Any help or general tips are appreciated.

    Sandra Neylon Occupational Health Ltd - Vocational Rehabilitation and Absence Management

    Two problems:

    1. The image doesn't float proplery on IE7 (havent checked IE6/8). The text won't come up and wrap round it.
    2. There's an extra bit of white space on the right, producing the scroll bar. No idea why, it's bound to be something extremely obvious.
    The code for the site:

    There's scroll bars in there (it's formatted oddly).

    1. Instead of floating a div container, why not just use align="right" on the image with some padding.
    2. I dont see any horizontal scrollbar appear in IE7/FF. Which browser?

    Ignore 1. I see what you are doing now, you are floating it so that all paragraphs wrap around the floated element.

    1. Yeah, that's the one :)

    2. Horizontal scroll bar appears in FF 3.0.7, IE 7.0.6001, Google Chrome, Safari 3.2.2.

    Cheers for trying to help Darren :up:

    Its because you have a fixed width in your

    Hmm, that does indeed fix both of them! I take it you can't use fixed widths for text then. I added that as I wanted the same side margin-left and right, so did that and centered it with margin-left:auto and margin-right:auto.

    I'll do it another way and hopefully all will be well.

    Thanks very much Darren!

    Well you can have fixed withs on text via a paragraph, but its generally not really done that way, you should fix the width of the container and then just use margin/padding on the paragraph to provide the correct widths, since it will always try to be 100% wide.

    Just to explain both the problems. FF does not seem to adhere to the fixed with of the <p> tag, so it looked right. IE did and therefore pushed the paragraphs under the image since it could not makes the paragraphs the correct width if it wrapped them.

    The reason you got the scrollbars (and because I didnt see them was in indication that it is a fixed width problem - higher resolution) was because the floated div that contains your image, also has a paragraph in it where you have the persons name. This meant that the 637 pixels that you had assigned to your paragraph started at half-way through the content div and at the top right. So you had a paragraph that contained the persons namethat extended right out of the page to the right.

    Hope this helps.
