Hello,

I want to know anyone had reported a possible bug
found in Internet Explorer 5 to 6.

when I use:

DIV#firstcol {float:left;
              width:200px}
DIV#secondcol {position:relative;
               margin-left:210px}

HTML like that:

<div id="firstcol">
  contents for the first column bla bla bla
</div>
<div id="secondcol">
  contents for the second column. Pay especial  
atention to that this will take more height than the
first column. blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
</div>

Internet Explorer 5.0 and 6.0 renders like this:


contents for  contents for the second column.Pay
the first     especial atention to that this will
column bla    take more height the first column. blob
bla bla       blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
             blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
             blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob
             blob blob blob blob blob blob blob blob


The text indentation in the second column is 2 or 3
pixels smaller when floating div ends. Is this
reported? Anyone knows how can I avoid this indent
effect?

Thanks
Pablo Enríquez
