    problem styling input

    http://hive-dev.net/jobbeginner/

    in FF the input works fine, but in IE the text infront of the input ie in the table td doesnt change,
    ive tried styling the table and the tc and the input but it just wont change in IE


    and in FF you see the light blue box under the footer, that belongs to the main div, but i have no idea where it comes from, and i cant get rid of it.

    thx for any help

    If you start by making sure the HTML and CSS are syntactically valid then you can start looking for logical errors.

    One IE problem might be the xml prologue. One page 158 of dwws, Zeldman opines, "Unforunately, many browsers, even those from 'nice' homes, can't handle their XML prologue. After imbibing this XML element, they stagger and stumble and soil themselves, bringing shame to their families and eventually losing their place in society." So he recommends dropping the prologue and replacing its encoding functionality with a meta tag.

    For the "blue strip" problem, add a few paragraphs of lorem ipsum to the appropriate spot on the page and see if that isn't just a page on an empty stomach problem.

    Ditch the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

    ´well got that to work by adding a padding-bottom to the footer

    but the problem with the input still remains.

    Looks like all that's left is some box model calcs and maybe more specific selector around the login. E.g. I got results with
    Code:
    #sidebar td
    {
    font-size: 10px;
    text-align: right;
    }
