Tableless Humor
« on: November 29, 2004, 06:18:17 am »

While trying to solve a CSS problem with a theme I was converting I went to this site for help.

I kid you not, this is how the page came up.  While examples of CSS oditties are not in short supply, this one made me laugh on a few levels.

First, this is pretty much the problem I was trying to solve, #2 These folks are the ones that control CSS and they can't get it right either.

Yes I know, I'm using a broken broswer, but firefox only gets it marginally better.

I would suggest that your're using the wrong browser/computer? ;)

I didn't see the problems either, but it shows how one browser (Firefox) displays everything correctly and the right menu is stationary, but another browser (IE) doesn't keep the menu stationary and the small paragraph isn't vertically centered.

Granted you have to go farther in this particular example, but firefox isn't immune.

This is going to continue to happen until we can use the min/max attributes, and browsers begin to respect them.

Browsers are going to have to start obeying the containing blocks as well.
