    Internet Explorer repeating a DIV


    I have a div #footer at the bottom of a page.

    All works except in MSIE (v6) where ol' Bill Gates decides to duplicate the #footer:

    If I remove the float:left from #footer it displays fine (but out of position!!) ... ideas welcome!!

    Ummm... It doesn't look right in IE6 just to let you know. Check out the screenshot I have. I tried it at 800x600 and 1024x768. It looks the same.

    Navigate to the URL, view the page source, and get the CSS from there

    Thanks AKH, u were spot on:

    "These extra comments trigger the bug only when the final float fills the container to the right edge, or to within less than 3px away from it. This is because IE6/win seems to have a weird 3px "bumper" margin on the right side of that last left float."

    Problem solved.
