Slight problem…

The new CSS layout I have been using has been great, but there is an slight issue in Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2 (why am I not surprised?). I am not sure if this exists with earlier versions OF IE, although I highly suspect it is either 1) the same or 2) worse. There is a HUGE amount of white space between the first post and the second post, but after that the white space between posts returns back to normal. Anyone have any ideas?

This issue does NOT appear in Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3.

  1. I encountered something like this before. See this with IE:

    By the way, I found that the name field of this comment form is unstyled. Did you forget something? See http://img6.imgspot.com/u/04/251/17/unstyledform.png

    The font of the form controls is also using my System font (MingLiu, or “???” if you understand Chinese). I use this CSS “trick” to ensure that my form looks nice in non-English OS:
    /* For non-English OS */
    input, textarea, select, button {
    font-family: inherit;
    }

  2. This drop down post effect in IE is something that I have not encountered before. I am looking into it but it does not fit any of the known Ie variations. I cant help wondering though if the Googleads are involved. They do a lot of very wierd stuff because IMHO the javascript is scrambled. Might be worth testing without.
    Do let us know how you get on. If I turn anything up I will publish the results. Ty. Root.

  3. I seem to also be having the same issue huge amounts of whitespace after the first article but not after any of the remaining articles. However, I am not running IE, I am running Safari 1.2.3 on MacOS X 10.3. Safari uses the khtml rendering engine.

  4. Vesuvius is an implementation of Ryan Brills negative margin scheme set out at alistapart. It is difficult for me to see where it has gone wrong in IE . Thanks for your patience.

  5. Wow you have got a new problem now. If you hover on the l menu (Firefox) your Googleads go all over the place. Really wierd but I have seen it plenty of times before. They suck (the ads) really 🙂

  6. Yeah, I noticed that when I first added them in. It only happens in Mozilla Firefox as far as I can tell (go figure, for once IE gets something right) and only when you hover on the lef sidebar links. When I get time I plan on doing more research on it.
