of all, thanks a million for your help with this. It is a wonderful
learning experience. I think it's amazing that so few little changes
can have such a great effect. I updated the css files as you told me
and now, IE 7 is looking as good as FF & IE8. Even IE 6 is starting
to shape up, though I do need to do a bit more research on IE 6. For
example, the main navigation links appear without borders and without
their background images, and sibling selectors don't work. Do I need to
address the IE 'box model' issue to fix the links and the image
I'll have a search for a .png fix for IE6.
Thanks for all the great tips! Oh, btw,
> When using conditionally commented stylesheets to fix IE, put them after
the default stylesheet(s) in the page head. That'll make it easier to
override the default stylesheet(s) with IE-specific styles without
having to bother with modifying selector specificity to make those IE
styles kick in.
tried this as you said but I found I still had to increase specificity
on the conditional comments otherwise it didn't seem to work.
I heard good things about that article, looking forward to reading it.
Thanks very much for the suggestions! Glad you like the cow :) I think I can learn a lot from that
layout you sent - it's simpler than what I've been trying. For now though I want to try to push
layout ideas out of the markup. But I will work some of your ideas
in. I also like what you did with the images. Even the wireframe itself is an interesting look from
a design perspective, especially the dots. Thanks :)
A couple of little things - does anyone know why:
in FF when we zoom out, the background image doesn't stay fixed?
Also, in Safari, the 'back to top' button only leaves us half way up the page?
