I don't know how similar opera and safari are... I've seem them used in context of the other,

but the search bar is floating above the site.

Teach me, teach me.

Corroboration

I see the issue in Operas 7-9, but not in Konqueror/KHTML, the parent rendering engine to Safari. It has been my experience that Konqueror[1] and Opera exhibit a degree of oddosity where floats are involved, and the search form is a float element. That said, I haven't been able to convince myself that it's been serious enough to fret over. This is the first time I've seen actual breakage, as apposed to 'just not looking right'.

Perhaps a Mac user or Opera fan can suggest a patch to Tony, in case he hasn't had the time to sort it out.

cheers,

gary

[1] That Konqueror is ok this time does not imply that Safari is too. Apple has made a number of changes to the KHTML engine.

I'll agree the OP's question

I'll agree the OP's question could have (should have) been more explicit. I believe he's talking about the top header/banner's search box on this site. In Opera, and it seems, in Safari, the search form seems to be located just out of the viewport at the top of the page.

For that reason, I've moved this back to site discussion.

cheers,

gary

Yes I do believes that this question relates to this forums search box as the problem has been pointed out once before by someone.

I can't pin down the handling of floats in Opera but it does seem to exhibit rendering contrary to all other known browsers in the universe.

I have had problems with floats in a form layout (and other instances) with Opera, and just as I was starting to sing it's praises, at first initial speculation I put it down to Opera not allowing to shrinkwrap floated elements especially as adding explicit dimensions sorts things out generally, but something recently made me think something else was occurring, but by that time I had got too frustrated to care and had chucked all my toys out of the pram, lost the plot completely and changed tack with the markup to avoid the problem.

In fact this topic was placed in the correct area, but it did need to be clearer Smile

Sorry for not being clear.

Sorry for not being clear.

I was commenting on the search bar that floats on top of the page.

I've always noticed the problem but never thought anything about it. Probably because I didn't know what the tiny blur represented. I felt like commenting after visiting the site in Firefox and noticed that the tiny blur was a search bar.

I can understand if it's not a big deal to fix the problem; only ~4% of web surfers use mac, and less than that use Safari. I just dislike using Firefox because of its appearance and styling of radio button, bars, fields, etc.

Teach me, teach me.

The Operatic brigade are

The Operatic brigade are missing out as well though, so that's another 0.01% of people not able to enjoy the pleasure of searching here.

Tony clearly does not care for minorities Smile

search box

Hi Guy's,
The search box should be ok now.
I don't have Safari to test with here but it looks alright in Opera.

Looks fine in Opera, what

Looks fine in Opera, what was the problem? dimensions?

Now it just remains to find out why the text is so much smaller than FF? Smile no I don't think it's my browser settings as I checked most settings I could find.

A grammar lesson :)

That was syntactical over-generalization. Just as the adjective, "generous" become the noun, "generosity", so does the adjective, "odd" become the noun, "oddosity".

Kill a joke?

Kill a joke? Me? I would never knowingly kill a joke. Are you sure there was one?

As to "argumentitude", that's a syntactical abstraction. A person who argues, or is argumentative has at his core a sense of argumentitude. As an odd person is an oddosity, it is due to his odditude.

Surely, you can see that IE is a massive bugosity due to its inherent bugitude.

Joke? I didn't see a joke. Did some one else see a joke? Huh? Anyone?

cheers,

gary

Yes well whether one

Yes well whether one abstraticates or litralizes these syntoidle points or indeed whether one is actually being abstracticational is I guess a point of mootitude.

Ho hum!

I've stayed away from this forum because I just don't have the patience to wait ten, twenty or thirty seconds between every page action or refresh. The speed wasn't too bad a few hours ago but now it's back to being just as slow as it was the last time I visited. Shame. Ho hum!

Bad timing on your part I'm afraid Roy, things have been much better of late but in the last week it's started to slow down again.
