Hey all,
I used to post here for a couple of years, and now I've just come across
something strange.
Building a windows media based sight with plenty of divs - all of a
sudden ie6 has stopped rendering div heights correctly when I use the
following DTD:

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

However - when I use:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> with no
DTD specified, it all renders fine.

Firefox however - renders correctly regardless of which DTD is loaded.
Just tested with:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN"

Exactly the same issues - very strange.

Considering this should have everything - I can't imagine any reason it
wouldn't work correctly.

Any ideas?
