Absolute DIV not showing in IE6 / IE7 - Internet Explorer

I've come across this problem a few times now and this should be of help to a few people.

When placing an absolute div within a relative positioned div, in IE6 and IE7 that div disappeared. The content within the div and the div just would not show. An immediate response would be to think of the stack and z-Index but after a few tests it wasnt that.

The Fix: Simply surround the absolute div with another empty div.

Did it work? Another similar problem? Leave a comment.
