    Issue floating in IE6

    Hey,
     
    I'm currently trying to place 6 Cute Editor boxes on one page, floating 3 right and 3 left.  There seems to be some issues with the rendering in IE6 only that I cannot figure out.  The left side controls render taller than the 3 on the right...any ideas what could be causing this?  I'm using the latest version of Cute Editor, everything works in Firefox, IE7 and 8.
     
    Am I doing something wrong here, or is this a limitation with Cute Editor?
     
    Here is the code, and I'll attach a screenshot below that:
     
    <div>
        <div class="leftfloat">
            <div>
                <label for="General">General <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="General" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="ClinicalSupport">Clinical Support <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="ClinicalSupport" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="OperationalImpact">Operational Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="OperationalImpact" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="rightfloat">
            <div>
                <label for="Strategic">Strategic and Market Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="Strategic" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="FinancialImpact">Financial Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="FinancialImpact" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="CustomerSatisfaction">Customer Satisfaction <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="CustomerSatisfaction" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

    Also, after I posted this I went and tested using a table to place the editors on the screen but that did not work either.  It's such a strange issue.  The boxes are visibly smaller but even the IE Developer Toolbar says they are all 100px in height.

    I use the following code, 
    <%@ Page Language="C#"%>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="CE" Namespace="CuteEditor" Assembly="CuteEditor" %>
    <div>
        <div class="leftfloat" style="float:left">
            <div>
                <label for="General">General <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="General" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="ClinicalSupport">Clinical Support <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="ClinicalSupport" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="OperationalImpact">Operational Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="OperationalImpact" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="rightfloat" style="float:right">
            <div>
                <label for="Strategic">Strategic and Market Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="Strategic" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>
                <label for="FinancialImpact">Financial Impact <span class="required">*</span></label>
                <CE:Editor ID="FinancialImpact" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
            <div>

                <CE:Editor ID="CustomerSatisfaction" runat="server" AutoConfigure="Minimal"  ShowBottomBar="false" Height="100px" Width="455px" />
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

    Re: Issue floating in IE6

    I was just about to reply, I found a solution to make it work, but I'd be curious as to why it fixes it.  I see in your code you have the standard DOCTYPE excluded...is there are reason why this could be breaking it?
     
    I found that simply removing this line from my page fixes everything.
     
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
     
    if you add that to your page code it will cause it do to funny things.  Any idea's why it causes issues?
     
    Thanks

    Re: Issue floating in IE6

    Anyone else have issues styling their cute editors while having the DOCTYPE declaration?  Or, anyone know why it causes issues?

    Re: Issue floating in IE6

    This issue is caused by IE 6.0 own built-in bugs.
     
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
     
    If you choose to use an XHTML doctype , please note that the XML declaration makes IE 6 (but not IE 7, IE 8.0) trigger the Quirks mode. All Standard compliant browsers – including IE7 – will read the DocType Declaration and interpret our markup and CSS accordingly. That's the whole idea, as it is only IE6 that is too weak with regards to W3C standards.
