Hey Alvaro,

The empresa.css url gives a 404.  And the difference between the two is that
empresa.html uses only the base css file, while the productos.html file has
the supplementary productos.css.  The only thing I see is that you redefine
#contenido in productos.css.  Maybe IE is resetting the :first-letter
pseudoclass or something.  Try explicitly defining it again in
productos.css.  Looks OK in Mozilla 1.6 now though!  :)

btw, using IE 5.5 the word "Ropa" is being displayed with font-size: 1px or
something.  Small enough that the word looks a hyphen on screen.  I think
it's because IE 5 Win doesn't like :first-line.

Subject: [thelist] :first-letter wont show in IE

Dear fellas, I have a problem with a :first-letter who denies to show up in
IE6. The attributes for this :first-letter changes its color and font-size.
In one page, all great, it shows. But in another, the first letter dont
change. Both pages uses the same base stylesheet plus a specific one. I've
grown green hair looking for "the" problematic line, and I have to finish
this site today, so I am very rushed. Can you help me find the problem? The
pages are in:
http://www.mktpublicidad.cl/def1/empresa.html , the good one (notice the
maroon "E")
http://www.mktpublicidad.cl/def1/productos.html , the ugly one (the first
"L" on the paragraph below the photos should be maroon)

and the CSS
http://www.mktpublicidad.cl/def1/estilo/paginas_mktpublicidad.css , the base
http://www.mktpublicidad.cl/def1/estilo/empresa.css , the css for
http://www.mktpublicidad.cl/def1/estilo/productos.css , the css for

Many thanks!
