Internet Explorer CSS bug fixes

The <!--[if IE]> Tag

Problem: Various sizes, margins and padding attributes can display differently in Internet Explorer, this coded snippet can help you sort out these problems.

Add this code with your required settings underneith your pages <style> or external style link:

<!--[if IE]>
.item {
margin: 5px;
padding: 10px;

These setting will now only be loaded when your page is viewed in Internet Explorer. I often use this setting to tweak areas of my layout that do not quite display the same as in other browsers.


Margin Auto Centering

Problem: When centering div tags via either the margin-left: auto; or margin-right: auto; settings, this will not work in Internet explorer unless you add the following to your style sheet for the html body:

html, body {
text-align: center;

Don't forget to now add this to your paragraphs and headings as the above setting will now cause these to also center.

p {text-align: left;}


Minimum height bug

Problem: When trying to create a DIV tag and the height will not go below about 12px

Simply add the following attribute to the DIV tag

{line-height: 0px;}

If this does not work try adding the line-height attribute to a <p> paragraph tag within the <div> tag itself.

Your final code should resemble one of the following:

<div style="line-height: 0px; height: 5px;"></div>

<div style="height: 5px;"><p style="line-height: 0px;"></p></div>


Margins appear larger in Internet Explorer

Problem: Setting the margin attribute for any CSS element in Internet Explorer it will often appear either double the size or with added width, which can seriously disrupt detailed layouts.

Simply use the {display: inline;} attribute on the tag containing your margin setting.

Your final code should resemble the following:

<div style="display: inline; margin-left: 5px;"></div>


CSS Light box Adobe Flash fix

Problem: The CSS Light box script will not appear on top of a Flash movie, this disrupts the actual function of the script.

Add the following setting(s) to the Flash HTML code:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>

Also add this to the <embed> tag


Be sure to add both of these settings for this to work properly, your final flash code should look similar to this:

<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="movie" value=" movie.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><embed src=" movie.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" wmode="transparent" width="232" height="218" name=" movie" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" /> </object>
