I think I'm on v1.0 r197 of DOM. (used a download from silverstripe.org website, not a CVS server)
I looked through the CSS , and looks like its not a CSS problem, as the CSS wasn't changed in cms forlder nor in dataobjectmanager, and the only file that is used in CMS from the frontend is typography.css - (i tried putting original typography to the site , but it didnt help).
Just noticed the same problem on completely different site I've done earlier which is on different server, and wasn't tested on IE...
If you'll have any thought - please let me know.
PS - not related to this thread, but maybe you can give me a hint on http://www.silverstripe.org/template-questions/show/254160?start=16 as well ? (my question is at the end of the thread) ?
