    Question The achcor (display:block) brings extra space in IE7?

    Hi, I am using html5 so i guess i am able to put <div> inside the <a> (display: block). But when the <div> has float: left, it always brings extra space between <a> in IE7. Other browser works quite fine. Does anyone know any reason or solution? Thanks a lot!!

    Here is my code:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html>
    	<head>
    		<style>
    			.block {
    				list-style:none;
    				display: block;
    				background: blue;
    				width: 200px;
    				color: black;
    				overflow: hidden;
    				clear: both;
    			}
    			div {
    				line-height: 20px;
    			}
    			
    			div.left {
    				line-height: 30px;
    				float: left;
    			}
    			
    			div.right {
    				float: left;
    			}
    		</style>
    	</head>
    	<body>
    		<ul>
    			<li>
    				<a href="#" class="block">
    					<div class="left">first</div>
    					<div class="right">second</div>
    				</a>
    			</li>
    			<li>
    				<a href="#" class="block">
    					<div>third</div>
    				</a>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</body>
    </html>
    If you view the code from browser, you will be able to to see there is a gap between 'second' and 'third'. By removing the 'float: left' from 'second', the gap will be gone.

    Thanks a lot, everyone!

    Block elements (DIV) can not be nested within inline elements (A). The fact that you gave a display block to the anchor does not change its native display type, which remains inline.

    You should modify the structure of the HTML according to this principle.

    I heard that in HTML5 the <div> can be nested in <a>. I validated my html code, and it seems it is valid.

    Hehe, right. That's tricky. I will change my markup then. Thanks Kor!
