Hey gang, quick question. I'm tring to make a "Thermometer" of sorts for my site, and instead of making lots of images in photoshop, I figured I could do it a little more dynamicly using divs and css. I was right, as Firefox displays my code perfectly, however, IE messes up the whole thing by keeping the allocated space for the one div in the place where its positioned in the code. Dumb thing. I figure it has something to do with the display property, but I'm not sure which to use. Any suggestions? Thanks!
<div style="height: 500px; width: 100px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; border: 0px black solid; background: url('meter_color.jpg');">
<div style="position: relative; top: 0px; left: 0px; height: 125px; width: 100px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; background: #FFFFFF; z-index: 1;"></div>
<div style="position: relative; top: -125px; left: 0px; height: 500px; width: 100px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; background: url('mask.gif'); z-index: 2;"></div>
