Ayeeeee! IE!

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:24 AM

Well, it dawned on me - stupid me - that I have IE:mac at my disposal. Sure, it isn't the same as IE for Windows, but maybe it wouldn't hurt to try out the site in it… Ouch! It looked horrible. So, I tinkered until I realized that my position: relative settings made IE go crazy in some cases (not all). So, I removed as many as I could without disrupting the design and IE:mac now shows the front page pretty well, save for the missing logo on top (I can't figure out why that doesn't show up). The site continues to load fine for me on my browsers, but if y'all would let me know if I messed up or fixed anything from your perspectives, that'd help. Thanks for being guinea pigs.

As I mentioned to Kevin in the comments of the last post, the boxes on the right side are suppose to be sticking off a bit for visual interest. Of course, if it just looks bad, let me know. :-)

Unfortunately, IE running on XP and 2003 is still dropping the post section under the right nav. I vaguely recall the same problem using relative positions when I set up my page. I will look through my CSS and blogger template to see if I can recall what I had to do to make it work.

Re: Ayeeeee! IE!

Which IE for Mac do you have? 5.1 is the best IE browser ever made for any platform. 5.2 is worse than netscape 4 when it comes to CSS.

Warren, if you force a reload of the CSS by going to http://asisaid.com/default.css in IE and clicking reload… does the page look any better? IE is terrible at refreshing things.

Re: Ayeeeee! IE!

No luck even with the reload. If you want a screen cap, I can grab one for you.

Sure, that’d be great, Warren. Thanks a ton!
