Hi Mike

Before playing with the CSS files, you may need to insert the doctype
decleration on each file generated by RoboHelp. The Doctype tells the
browser which version of HTML you are using - if you don't explicitly
declare it, the browser will go into "quirks mode" and interpret the
HTML coding in its own way. For RoboHelp files, you should probably
use the HTML 4.01 Transitional doctype which basically means that each
HTML document begins with the following line of code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

If that doesn't make any difference, I would recommend installing the
developer bar for internet explorer:

With this tool, you'll be able to see what's going on more clearly. It
lets you highlight exactly which element is causing the problem and
try out various fixes on the fly.
