I am having trouble with some divs in HTML. The problem is basically when the content is too long it overlaps in the bottom.

You can see what i mean over here

Its where the text says OVER HERE on the page, that is suppose to be part of the content.

So basically the footer and every other part is suppose to go down.

The error only shows up in FIREFOX

Thanks for any input at all

Use the HTML language to place the text exactly where wanted. Use the line/column configuration.

Example from HTML editor handbook:
DIV.Beetles {bacground: #FFFF20; font-style: Arabic}

<DIV CLASS="Beetles">
{topic or source}

Firefox, Mozilla etc isnt forgiving with bad coding. IE bends rules and works out of validated code restraints (thats a bad thing).

Are you familiar with validation?
Run your html through here.

It can help you code and is a great tool.

Another option is to create an image map 800/600 with adjustable sides. I'm drawing a blank... Like a blank frame. See here


This is a site I am still working through. I have had the same problem when setting up websoft DB's.
