CSS Problems: IE and Firefox (5 posts)

    Hey guys. I just switched to WP and started to set up my blog, but i'm having some problems with the css in both IE and Firefox.

    My site is http:/eris.res.cmu.edu/wp/

    In IE, the rap bg color sets properly, but the box content text is shifted to far to the right. In Firefox, the rap bg doesn't set, but the the content text is in the right place. I was wondering if you guys could help me with these problems. Thanks.

    IE incorrectly calculates margins or padding in some instances. You might try removing the left margin from '#content' and moving it to '#rap' and see what happens. Alternately, you need to cheat. One way is to first set the margin for correctness in IE, then use a CSS syntax that IE does not support to override it for Firefox. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact trick to deal with this problem.

    Bringing you CSS up to validation standards may fix your problem. At the very least, it will make it easier to diagnose and fix your problem. http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http%3A%2F%2Feris.res.cmu.edu%2Fwp%2F&usermedium=all

    Done macmanx. Sorry about that. While I was tweaking the CSS for the validator, I fixed the IE problem. I'm not sure exactly was wrong, but it went away. Guess it was something with poor syntax.

    The firefox problem still remains though. Lets see if we can fix that one now. Thanks guys.
