Is your blog's sidebar drooping in Internet Explorer? Here's the fix!

Earlier today I was messing around with a template in Blogger. I made some graphic changes and realized to my horror that sidebar of my blog was "drooping".

I use the Firefox web browser for my default browser and my blog looked fine. When I looked at the blog in Internet Explorer, the sidebar section with the links was set far down the side of the page. No matter what I did, it stayed there.

So after some extensive searching I found a solution. It took some trial and error, but I managed to fix the problem.

I found the solution on Jon Aquino's Mental Garden, which is filled with useful information on web design and software.

The solution was to alter the CSS positioning of DIVs in the blogger templates. It took some tweaking, but it seems to have fixed my issue with IE.

If you're new to the whole CSS positioning game, check out Max Design's tutorial on CSS floats.

If you have no idea what CSS is or what the heck a DIV is, go read this tutorial at W3Schools.com.
