Pardon the dust...

Sorry about the big mess of things here. I'm fixing the IE issue by (inelegantly) switching to a new template. The fastest way to work is to let it be ugly for a little while, but hopefully it won't last long...

UPDATE: well, it's going to last a little while... even though things are still screwy, I have to go work out and then I have a meeting. Maybe I'll have time to fix it all tonight...

ps. Oh, css, how you drive me insane!!!

CSS driving you insane? Don't you mean IE-in-all-versions-before-8? ;-)

Well, that was the ultimate cause of my problem, but not the reason for my immediate consternation throughout the process. ;-)



(And I'm not at all sure that 8 is an improvement -- the jury's still out on that one!)

I get the CSS consternation. That's when I have to rely on those websites that give you so-called IE hacks in the CSS or container use that takes care of IE issues.

It's amazing that a whole industry has risen up to compensate for the myriad inadequacies of that browser!

Keera said...

Wasn't that the idea? ;-) I'm sure it's in Microsoft's plans somewhere!

It's a fascinating business plan: "Let's get everybody in the technical community to despise us and think we're a company that produces non-compliant, buggy software! Yeah! That'll be a great long-term strategy!"

Seriously, they need to make a better browser. IE on the Mac was actually quite nice to use for a long time, and if they'd kept developing it, they would have kept up with browsers like Safari (which has matured nicely) and Firefox (which I use when some web duhsigner fails to notice that not everyone browses with Windows). Happily, major companies are no longer pitching "This site works best with Internet Explorer". Well, happily for me - maybe not for MS.
