I know you must be knowing it. Things differ so much in IE (IE 8). I've a website, I've set up some divs with absolute positioning. And padding in text boxes as well. The results differ, of Chrome and IE. Whats the solution to that?

There is no solution apart from testing in every browser, and writing code that works in all of them. There's an awesome tool called IETester ( you can google that and download it ), which lets you install the most recent IE and test against them all, because they differ with each other, too.

But how on earth can I get same positioning if this difference persists?
and please have a look :

I've always used IE developer tools to test. I'll give IETester a try. 5'd

Why would you post the same question twice ? The answer to this vague question is the answer I gave. The answer to your specific question will be to use different CSS elements, OR to use IE specific CSS to override the general CSS you write, or perhaps even to detect which browser someone is using and send them a different CSS style sheet to use. It's all messy and ugly, but if you google, you'll find everyone else is doing the same things.

Don't post this over and over. It's your fault for asking this general and vague question, which has been answered. I've not looked at the other question, but your nagging won't make me, either.

Excuse me...I did not ask you this time. It was AlluvialDeposit, because I know he's someone who's wonderful about answering questions.

ROTFL !!! Yeah, I'm not 'wonderful'. Thanks.
