      I have literally copied and pasted the code from http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/editor/icon_editor_clean.html

      I apologise that the CSS for the RTE is compressed, but that is how it came... I am convinced it has something to do with strange positioning but I just cant fathom it out. Any advice greatly appreciated!

      I have amalgomated the CSS into my own css which can be found at:

              Dan -- It s hard to debug in IE, but it looks like a positioning/rendering issue. First , try to render the Editor later in the page or inside an onDOMReady.

                It's hard to debug in IE, but it looks like a positioning/rendering issue.

                First , try to render the Editor later in the page or inside an onDOMReady.
                Then try to add position: relative or zoom:1 to something above the
                Editor to see if that "forces" IE into rendering properly.

                The best thing is to create a second page and start stripping out CSS
                until it renders properly, then we can see what rule was messing it
                up..

                Does that help?
