Some of you have seen this already ( adi / roz / wit ;p )

Wit wanted me to create a layout that was easy to navigate while using her art.

Here's what i've got so far

This is a great design! I love how all of your websites look so smooth and shiney.

It looks great in FireFox... but here's how it's displaying in IE...

EW hmm i need to add the min-height hack to IE

I forgot about that when i removed a few of those paragraphs, thanks for checking that merreck !

[edit]-- hopefully i fixed it, not at an IE-capable computer to test it.

really wish the browsers would use all the same CSS commands >.<

Fucking IE. Feel like explaining the min-height hack?

well i used to use a javascript that minicked the min/max height/width commands, but my search engine query today turned up something even simpler and just as effective

#maincontent { min-height: 700px }

// IE hack
* html #maincontent { height: 700px }

From what I gather, "height" in IE works like min-height in Firefox/Safari

furthermore, a quick hack for anything that doesnt validate ( pssh, validation is overrated, its all about getting it presented, no matter what ! )

#maincontent {
min-height: 700px;
_height: 700px;

anything with a _ in front is ignored by firefox and read by IE. dirty, I know. but it werks!

oh! wow that is super helpful, particularly the bit about the _ . Thanks!
