Default Internet Explorer Problems

There is a bug/problem when viewing reviews in IE. I made a test review here for you to look at:

http://www.thevbgeek.com/showthread.php?p=6650#post6650

It only happens when the review post is short. In FireFox the modules are always against the right hand side of the page like they should be, no matter how short or long the post is.

If you look at that same page in IE the modules are in the middle of the page due to the short post, they are not staying on the rightmost side of the page like they should.

Can you please look into this asap? Thanks

I have done and have a big dent in my monitor from the hours trying to find a way around it.
The problem is in IE's rendering of tables. Even though the content table's width is set to 100%, IE wont push it all the way over because its content doesnt fill it.
The good news is that it wont do it if you you have at least a line in there which 99.9999999% of the time you would. Only exceptions are with tests like you have just done.
Only real workaround so far is to have the module blocks to the right instead of left.
If some HTML guru knows a real solution, I would pay for it however so far I have spent about 5 straight hours trying different things. IE just wont play right

Just viewing the source from the example he posted above reveals one possible solution:

(I removed the code for the actual modules to make things a little more readable)
HTML Code:
	<tr>

		<td class="alt1" valign="top">
			<!-- message -->
			<div>shortshort
<!--hi-->&nbsp;</div>
			<!-- / message -->
		</td>

		<td class="alt1" valign="top" width="200px">
        <div style="float: right;">
		<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container --><!-- END TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container --><br />
		<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container -->
		<!-- END TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container --><br />
		<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container -->
		<!-- END TEMPLATE: GARS_mod_container -->
        </div>
		</td>

	</tr>
This section in particular:

<td class="alt1" valign="top">
<!-- message -->

The width is not set for the first cell in this row, and it is set to 200px for the second cell.

The above snippet should look something like this:

<td class="alt1" valign="top" width="100%">
<!-- message -->

Template to change is GARS_pb

find:
HTML Code:
		<td class="alt1" valign="top">
			<!-- message -->
			<div>$post[message]</div>
			<!-- / message -->
		</td>
and change it to:
HTML Code:
		<td class="alt1" valign="top" width="100%">
			<!-- message -->
			<div>$post[message]</div>
			<!-- / message -->
		</td>
Seems to fix the problem for me
