I am having CSS problems. :-(

Your security checkpoints are overwriting text. Ditto your inlined <tt> text, it aligns itself without paying attention to the surrounding text. Perhaps that should be a class? Generally mixing inline and external CSS is supposed to be a bad idea.

As for CSS and browser bugs, what I have seen done with Apache to get around them is that the stylesheet is served by an Apache handler that does a browser detect for things that really cannot be worked around. It works but...

Oh, and a useful trick to think about. Get a computer with VMWare installed. IE 4, 5, Netscape, Netscape under Linux, etc quickly adds up to a lot of partitions to juggle, and reproducing a setup can be a pain. But keeping that many virtual machines is fairly easy to do for a fraction of the pain. And working from a snapshot you can reproduce situations reliably and easily.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
