View Full Version : Internet Explorer displaying images in different position to firefox

12-30-2010, 08:32 AM
Hi I am working on this site http://www.ebc.net.au/bsia/index.html if you scroll down to the bottom of the page under resources section there is a list of documents with pdf image next to each one which I have placed by absolute positioning.

My problem lies with the fact that the images line up in firefox but not in internet explorer.

Is there a better way to position these images so that they work across different browsers.

Could you not just set the image as a background to the link using a class? Add some padding right to make sure the text doesn't over run the image and then some line height to make it vertically central. This that's what I'd have a go at first.

OK Amanda, this is really rough and ready but should give you a basis to work from; http://corrosiveonline.co.uk/_projects/link-demo.html
