Hi,

just thought I'd mention that the center column on the index of csscreator has decided to push itself down the page below the side columns.... I'm seeing this in win IE6, looks as though there is quite a long link in the news and links section possibly acting as the culprit... hope I'm not just stating the obvious, but thought i'd point it out just in case,

sean.

this sites index is messing up in ie6

Thanks Sean,
I had noticed long links were messing up the index page.
Also if you are one the first visitors to the home page and and everyone before has used IE then the browser stats with IE at 100% will also mess up the columns.

Thanks for pointing it out, being the slack fellow that I am I try to ignore these issues and hope they go away.
I am pretty busy at the moment with other work but I will try and make some fixes when time is available. Mind you it may take a while as I will have to walk down stairs to test anything in IE and once down in the dungeon I may never return. Smile

After hours of hard toil and testing I set overflow to hidden on the center column.
This seems to fix the problem of long links in IE and Firefox and Opera, even Konqueror seems to handel it fine.

I haven't done anything about the browser stats you just shouldn't visit the site in IE. Shock
Anyway to many IE visitors make the stats look bad.

Let me know if you notice any other problems and I will try to ignore those as well.

Fair enough,

Its amazing really... I automatically use IE to browse and its easy to maintain code with the right click and view source in notepad... however I find myself cutting and pasting urls into firefox and such like to view pages construct more easily and find out how they're graphically built with the right click and view background image(FF) function.... seemingly with the limited time I have myself, my site could look graphically better and have better ergonomics (for want of a better word) and have more content even, if I was able to spend as much time on these things as I have to spend on fixing code to be crossbrowser ie:

yes thats hours to fix something that should take minutes, one for all and all for one standard should be the motto of the day, and yet almost like it's a hereditary affliction I still use the IE browser backed by the wealthiest of all software distributers which can't even get the box model right?? but like I said it's automatic... it's just there, so I use it, probably the same reason anybody else on the planet uses it, lets face it people cant be simply using it based on its merit.. MS needs to sort out they're browser because the use of it is gonna end up being a genetic inhertance to the next generation anyway... cos its 'just there'.

cheers

sean..(not a fan of IE)..(or spending hours figuring out why one browser lets you have borders round your image links and the other one lets you have half a displaced border instead)

...sorry for all that ...just good to rant once in a while
