I’m using the following bit of code inside of my page.  I have two columns of equal size floating inside of a div id="main content”.  The two columns have fixed sizes so there should be a 20px “gutter” in the middle if floating them both left and right respectively.  Funny thing is that it was working for a sec, then I must have messed something up, cause it’s not working now.  I imagine it’s something simple I’m overlooking… I’m hoping a few more eyes are better than the two I’ve been using for the past hour or so.

Would like to see a link to the site in question?
Try this instead

#main-content {
    background-colorgreen;
    
position:relative;
    
padding20px;
    
float:right;
    
width:700px;
    
height2000px;
}

html #main-content { width: 740px; }

Also why do you have height @ 2000px;

broken browsers, which try to provide CSS functionality but fail horribly in some manner; quirky browsers, which have generally decent CSS support but a number of “gotchas” where they don’t quite measure up; and compliant browsers, which do a good job of presenting CSS as it’s meant to be.SEO Company

Since conditional comments use the HTML comment structure, they can only be included in HTML files, and not in CSS files.

Since conditional comments use the HTML comment structure, they can only be included in HTML files, and not in CSS files. I’d have preferred to put the special styles in the CSS file, but that’s impossible. You can also put an entire new <link> tag in the conditional comment referring to an extra style sheet.
