Ok, does anybody remember the problems with absolute positioning in PC IE, and those with relative positioning with MAC IE? Tired of searching hacks and workarounds to serve different stylesheets to the browser, I decided to convert the layout from a "position based" one to a "float based" one. Now the layout is made up of a single stylesheet, but I've never tested it with a Mac browser. Can anybody make the job for me? Can you also check the scrolling of the page?

Oh! The URL is: http://www.unipr.it/paolo/prova3.htm

Thanks. This forum is un unvaluable tool.

BrowserCam

I've setup a public project containing screenshots of your site, courtesy of BrowserCam:

I included every Mac browser in their menu, and used 800x600 resolution. Hope it helps...

Re: Back for a (Mac) Check

Here are screen shots from IE 5.1.6 and Netscape 7 (Mac OS 9).

Other issues

Well, much appreciated your help, as usual. Now i'm experiencing new troubles.

Look at the URL: http://www.unipr.it/paolo/prova3.htm

and please tell me:

1 - If browsing it with Mozilla you can see the fixed background image (once upon a time i could see it, but now it has disappeared, while it's still present on IE... what's the matter?)

2 - in IE, what's the strange effect when you pass for the first time on a link on the left navigation bar (the white space on its right, the little moving in the header elements...)

3 - if you know a way of getting the left column colored (keep in mind i've got to keep the color of the right column transparent, to let the background image emerge from the html tag).

That's all...

Back for a (Mac) Check

.middleleft {
background-color: #333;
}

should do it. But I see you using background-color other places in your stylesheet, so I must have missed something in your question.

Back for a (Mac) Check

That's the point. If i set a background color for the middleleft div, a small colored border appears around the the navigation bar, like just its margins get colored. The left column seems to be automatically sized to the contained elements, not a pixel more.

I wonder if it's clear enough...

Back for a (Mac) Check

i had a problem with some of my background images not showing opera mozilla while others showed

they all showed in ie...

i went through one of the bad kids and took out all the lines with variables about the background

the image showed, obviously it was repeating and stuff (ugly as anythingl but hey) but it showed in those two browsers

so i added back the arguments line by line.... background-attachment broke it

if you have that tag you may want to try removing it to see if it'll show up in moz/opera =)

I'm getting that effect in IE Mac, too. I've never seen a page do that before. :? I wish I had a suggestion for you. Sad :? :?

Back for a (Mac) Check

Thank you all. Back once more with a new layout, entirely made up of floated divs. It looks quite fine with my pc browsers, and some troubles seem solved (even if in IE, the banners at the top still move when i touch a link: what's the matter?), but as usual i wonder what's the look with Mac.

Can anybody check?

ThanksThanksThanks
