I don't know what causes this and I would appreciate it if you could help with an answer.
I've dropped a search box from Sitefinity onto my template page and proceeded to skin the search box so that it uses a rounded corner background image and instead of the button default, I've used a background image for this too.
In Firefox everything's grand (of course) but in IE7 and IE8 the alignment is out. In IE 8 the search button is inline with the search box but above it slightly and vice versa for IE7.
What I have noticed is that it creates a commented Text - Empty Text Node where the closing fieldset tag should be and the closing fieldset tag does not exist at all.
Is this a known issue and can it be fixed?
It should also be mentioned that I've slightly modified the search control and removed the Text attribute. I also know that those Text - Empty Text Nodes are normally created in my html if, for example, an opening table tag is on the next line after a closing div tag. It seems IE does not like white space, so if I move the opening table tag onto the same line as the closing div tag, it removes the Text - Empty Text Node which I have now done in the search control without any joy.
