IE CSS Bug: 'clear: both'

GeekSpeak comments edit

With the new look and feel, I’ve noticed that if I throw a picture in there and align it to the right, sort of like I do in some entries, if the picture is longer than the entry, you get some odd overlapping and such.

I’ve tried to fix it, but IE’s rendering engine just can’t seem to handle the CSS ‘clear: both’ directive correctly. That is, I tried to say “each entry should clear on both sides so you don’t get overlapping entries,” but when I do that, IE loads the page up then the top entry on the page blinks out of existence until you scroll it off the screen, then back on… then after a few seconds, it just blinks out of existence again. Obvious rendering engine bug. (Works on Firefox just fine, though.)

Long and short of it is, I’m not sure if there’s anything I can do about the overlap in a browser-independent fashion (which is what I was hoping to achieve). I’ll keep plugging away at it, but for now, I’ll just have to watch my image sizes.
