I know noone is interested Wink, but it seems that the IE7 has bitten the bullet is going to fix (has fixed) overflow:visible and implement min-*, max-*.

IE7 Blog

MSDN on IE7 CSS Compat see the section on Box model changes.

All that kerfuffle about :hover[1] not working and the really important things are missed.

[1] for which, this apparently is the fix

#fubar a:hover {float: inherit;}

IE7 & min-* max-*

Not interested Shock I spend every waking minute fretting about the impending release of IE7.
So having just about got my head around a half fixed implementation of a property and the problems that would bring they go and decide to fix it up completely (they had sorted out the overflow property a while back)or was I just having a dream that they weren't fixing min/max height, seems that way according to this comment

Quote:
We are workign on min/max-height/width. The overflow work was the precursor for us being able to introduce anything but min-height like you see with IE6.

from the blog that implies it was always going to be fixed, sneaky :roll:

All the kerfuffle about :hover was entirely pointless as it doesn't exist in the internal versions and will not find it's way into release candidates according to MS.

So, in other words, they don't know.

IE7 is 10 years behind the standards or wrong.

It's a good point it's very odd english; "being able to introduce anything but min-height like you see with IE6.
"
It doesn't necessarily read as they are introducing min/max height what I just can't fathom is how they can still be working on this aspect at this late stage.

I find these msdn blogs increasingly weird and non informative.

We could have introduced anything we liked but not min-height, at least not until we got rid of that wierd - I don't know what they were smoking, but it must have been really good stuff - rendering model that [like] you see with IE6.

IE7 &amp; min-* max-*

Smile thats clearer- I think. It's somewhat axiomatic that they had to correct overflow for min-height to have any meaning in their world.

Why can't they just release a browser that works? Then update the rendering engine to support more stuff,a nd release it as a free update? Like Firefox does?
