Remember the vanishing text issue in IE 6?

This is so typical again.. while i am about to create a new version from the scratch, testing every step simultaniously in 4 different browsers, i came across the “vanishing text” issue with Internet Explorer 6 again. The layout i am creating is again a 3 column one. Now here comes the solution.. the simple, simple solution to fix this… I was searching for a solution for months. *Roar!*

To avoid the vanishing text issue you simply have to set the “line-height” property on the parent block-element. This will make IE6 render the page correct. Done. Yup.. and thats it. Grrr..

Found the solution here. Thanks.
