Page not displaying in i.e. properly (5 posts)

    If you look at it in i.e. and firefox, the borders between the main columns disapear when viewing in i.e. (the thin 1px black line)

    however, when you switch to a diff category (except for general) they show up fine.

    I've racked my brain and I can't figure it out. Two points to whomever can help me.

    I've checked the posts, cause i thought it might be something in there like a pic making it bleed over length wise. Nothing.

    Oh my! What have you done to the code? You seem to be writing HTML, but you claim it's XHTML. And tables? And all that JavaScript?

    Decide what you want to code to, and use the appropriate doctype. Then get rid of the tables and study some more CSS. Then come back.

    Check the loong url on this entry: 1/14/2005

    Clicking between pages shows that the margin to the moblog pictures gets taken away, and that long url is where I'd start..

    If it's not, post back and we'll go tracking again :)

    thanks podz.

    I'm practical, I don't make a living designing websites. I want to know what makes something work, not keep it clean and popular with the design freaks. For the layman, css is a pain in the ass. I'll study it more when I have more time to invest in it and designing isn't just a hobby I do when I'm not working 10+ hours a day and getting a masters degree.

    css was designed to make it easier to design the site as a whole. It's just one of those things that requires a small amount of upfront time before you get any benefits. If you actually think about it, for any blog-like site, css saves the time it takes to learn it by a factor of ten - unless you never want to change anything about your site.

    Luckily enough, browsers will still show code that doesn't validate - I suppose we should all be thankful web dev is more lenient than application design.
