So are you saying that if a style is coded badly that is the reason it doesnt work in Ie, but FF manages to make it work.ElbertF wrote:The best thing is to write completely valid HTML, that will solve 90% of your problems. Most problems occur when the browser has to interpret faulty code, they all have a very different way of handling that. Validate your site with the W3C validator.
The biggest differences between IE and FF are the way they render floating elements, and padding and margins. So pay extra attention when you use those.
I never ever needed conditional style sheets to get my sites working in all browsers, I think you should try to avoid that as much as you can.
Nope, I'm saying the both try to make it work but in a different way. It's very difficult to guess what you mean when you make a mistake and that may lead to unexpected results.girlintrouble wrote:So are you saying that if a style is coded badly that is the reason it doesnt work in Ie, but FF manages to make it work.
Padding and margins are CSS. For instance, when you have this code:girlintrouble wrote:Its not a problem with layout (hence stylesheet?) but more menus so is that still what you mentioned above - padding, margins etc?
Code: Select all
<div style="width: 80px; padding: 10px;"></div>
Code: Select all
<div style="width: 100px;"><div style="padding: 10px;"></div></div>
You should always try to fix errors. If you don't know how to fix them you should try to find solutions on Google. It may be a good idea to find some tutorials about writing valid HTML first.girlintrouble wrote:Will try your validator link.....
EDIT> Useful link - 4 types of errors found. Not that Im sure I know how to fix them or even if i MUST fix them or if they are what my problem is
The CODE box (with the select all and scrollbars options) is now working on all styles, other than proSilver, on all browsers.girlintrouble wrote:WonderWoman - very interesting and annoying thread.
Hmmm - I tried to change my codebox too at one point but thankfully didnt try too long. Hope you get a solution.
I also find that the graphic of my logo renders more smoothly (even more annoyingly) in IE! The only thing good about it! I wonder why the weakness in FF.
About 24.5% according to the most recent statistics. About the same number as are using IE7.Linda Carter wrote:I wonder how many people are still using (I won't be one of them very soon).
