I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not. I am having the following problem, with how the front page is displayed in I.E. 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1.020828-1920. In Opera the front page displays just fine. Here is a screen shot.
I am aware of the issue, and I have no idea how to fix it short of using two different stylesheets for IE6 and the rest of the browsers. It only happens in IE6, which is now an old browser, so I have a feeling users of it are just going to have to suck it up.
Unfortunately, some of us can't upgrade to SP2 in order to upgrade to IE 7. SP2 causes problems for a number of machines, including mine. I haven't made a determined effort to install IE 7, without SP2 and I don't know if you can either.
a good website administrator conforms to web standards and doesn't support old, inaccurate web browsers. Edman has it right.
But OK, I understand that there are some people who are forced to browse website from an environment they have not set up and have little control over, so I'm going to add that browser check and the extra stylesheet bit. I just have to get hold of a computer that still runs IE6.
There are pretty big borders to the left and right, which seem like a waste. Frankly, this is pretty bad practice in web design.
I'd really like to upgrade the layout, but I'm a bit burnt out atm. I've spent about 200+ hours of work to upgrade this site in the last 2 months. So I'm probably gonna take a month or so off from programming new stuff.
EDIT: oh yeah, if anyone wants to help me, wink wink, I won't stop you from coding the liquid layout and I'll integrate it into the site templates. It has to be no-tables though.
Alright, that'd be great!I can probably have the site converted to a liquid layout sometime next week. I already figured out the CSS changes needed to get the columns to sit where they need to and to have the middle column resize with the browser. I still need to tweak the CSS to get all the paddings and borders and gradients lined up properly. Seems entirely doable, though.
