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.

I agree. Here's the link:
