What is the "IE drop div problem"?

I think I got the name right. I develop in Firefox and test in IE when I get around to it, but our creative people keep complaining that I keep making this mistake, but I keep forgetting to ask what it means...

Perhaps the issue in IE6 where dropdowns have a higher z-index than anything else (like a positioned div) with a higher declared z-index?

Can they not take the time to show you the issue?

Hi David,

Maybe the creative people refer to the problem with div and float.

I tried the code posted in that page. The five div sections are nicely aligned in FireFox and IE7 but not in IE6.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
