The Template and the Stylesheet…..

Hmm well this is an interesting one, ever since the conception of the Web browser way back in the early 90’s with the Mosaic browser (think before pre-Netscape) then came Internet Explorer and the more popular (at the time) Netscape which is based on the Mozilla engine which it still uses today, now these browser “fought” for people, MS bundled IE with Windows so you didn’t need to go and find one, then you have Opera a great browser that if you were to look hard enough into IE you’d see operaesque behaviour. We should also mention Firefox the new kid on the block, Safari and Omni for the Mac and Knoqueror for those nice people who like linix. The only thing is well we have a set of rules that state that if you use tag A it will has to do this type of behaviour and for Tag B that behaviour. That isn’t the case just like with Stylesheets certain browsers Interprut your wonderously created Style list slightly wrong.
Known bugs are the “padding and border” bug in IE 5.x (know as the Box Model Bug) and there are many more, I hunted around and found a very comprehensive list of them at Centricle: css filters (css hacks) this lists all the know “bugs” with all the browsers listed and well how to get your lovely page to display exactly the same in IE, Firefox, Opera, Netscape, Safari and Knoqueror. After all IE5 has that bug i listed so you look up how to do it and well there are actually several ways to do it πŸ˜‰ Heather,Moogie & Sharon you may wanna have a look and point this out to others πŸ˜‰ hey it’s a good resource point if you want to “fix” a few glitches in your template with a specific browser πŸ˜‰ and score brownie point for getting it looks the same all over – no doubt my page breaks in IE5.
Enjoy right I’m off to do something interesting, what I don’t know..
