How important is it that people should be able to cut and paste from your website?
Having designed a site using nothing but DIV tags instead of using a table structure to lay out a page I find that IE 6 has a problem concerning absolute positioned layers.
The pages look fine, however if you go to select a certain piece of text you'll find that it selects the whole page instead (or at least not the part you wanted to select). Frustrating or what!
After some investigation it seems that a lot of people are discovering this problem. One solution it seems is to remove the XHTML doctype from the document, this forces IE 6 into quirks mode, which renders the page differently, the error disappears, but it stops the page from validating. Solution? I don't think so!
The other solution is to avoid using absolutely positioned elements and use relative ones instead. Surely we are trying to progress website design not hinder it.
