MOVED: My blog is now at

solution #2

It seems that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Ages ago I wrote about a mad IE duplicating text bug that would repeat bits of content lower down on the page. It had me scratching my head for a little while wondering how IE could be home to yet another bug, especially one this weird. My old friend Google came to the rescue in the end, showing me a cure.

Now though there appears to be a new and even simpler cure. The problem occurs when you have two floats, and comments between them. The solution I used previously was to remove the comments, but now it appears that another fix is simply to add display:inline to the css rule for the floats. I pretty much do that automatically now, to avoid IE doubling the margin around floats, so it fits right in, and means I can forget about removing comments from my code.
