Browser Compability Issues

  • Ok this is not really WP specific but since you guys are so awesome, I’m gonna post it here anyways. =)
    So I know that IE sucks but since it’s still the most used browser for now, I still have to make my sites compatible with it. So is there a place that I can find all the CSS styles IE doesn’t support and also provide solutions to it? I’ve googled but haven’t had much luck.
    Thanks in advance!

  • From my experience, it’s not that IE just doesn’t support something (save for the -moz attribute thingies), but it seems to have broken support. ex. margin:0px auto doesn’t work in IE because IE can’t do auto.

    One of the best ways to find out is trial and error. Yes, it is rough, and it is a major pain in the ass, but you’ll learn a lot along the way.

    I just plod along and check my work often in both browsers. When I run into a problem I just google the code and usually something helpful pops up. Eventually some of it sticks in my head, and whatever falls out I just google again 😉

    But no, I know of no place that details everything you need to do to be cross browser compatible. Satoshi’s right, it’s all trial and error.

    Thanks. I’ll try that when I have time.
    You know the funny thing is that IE(Mac) renders my site much better than the Windows version. Go figure.

    There really is not a simple algorithm for one size fits all CSS. I have found it is a series of coding habits and practices, things to avoid, things to always do. Ninety per cent of the problems are in positioning. It is easy to fix – I just wish it was easy to explain how. 🙂

    Thanks Root. If I run into problems, I’ll definitely flood your inbox with emails, after which I’ll compensate you with some sexual favors.

    Ok, it’s actually the exact reverse of what you asked for but hey, maybe it’s useful.

    fuzzy_logic, you can access one of the best CSS discussion fora on the net at WebmasterWorld. You may need to register, but it’s free. Near the top of the forum index is a link to the Library: there’s a TON of good info in there about stuff like the IE hacks.

    You should check out sites like BlueRobot, Css Zen Garden, MeyerWeb. They all go into detail on how to get round IE’s inconsiderate behaviors….

    Thanks V. I’ll do that when I get a chance!

    fuzzy : I just hope you are a girl. But if IE on a mac is rendering OK its probably borked somewhere 🙂

    Root: Sorry to disappoint you but I’m not a girl. By the way, what engine does IE Mac use?

    I wish I knew but heres a guess – its a LINUX kind of thing 🙂
