Pages that are made larger than 600px heigh by their content display oddly (overflow)

  • IE6 (windows xp)
  • Firefox 2 / 3/ 3.5 (windows)
  • Displays correctly in Safari (win) and Chrome (webkit)

Basically a float overflow bug; but as theirs no element at the base of the views to clear you cant fix it without editing the view.

The inclusion of <p style="clear:both"> </p> at the base of these views fixes the issue. as per attached sample view.
