I checked it in NS7 Mac (Gecko engine I guess) and it seems to be just
fine. However, in IE 5.1.5 Mac (both under OS 9.2.2) it is a little odd.
At first everything looks exactly as it does in Netscape, other than the
addition of a horizontal scroll bar overall and another one in the innner
News box. But if I resize the window the text in the News box does not
slide over to match the space provided for it. If I put the window back
to the formeer size, the text now is outside the box a little to the
left. If I repeat the exact same enlarge/shrink actions, the text slides
over a little more to the left, and more and more on each resize cycle.
If I load another page then go Back to your page, all is well again. It
would not surprise me to learn that this is caused by a bug in IE rather
than in your code.
Other than that, the site appears to be very well done.
By the way, something to think about in your OS/browser detection
efforts. Browsers are capable of pretending to be something they're not.
I sometimes use iCab to test sites, mainly because it has an incomplete
CSS implementation and it's interesting to see what breaks. Sometimes I
would stumble into sites that said I couldn't enter because I didn't have
IE. So I set iCab to say it's IE to get in. Usually the site displays
well anyway - it was just thoughtlessness on the part of the site author.
Anyway, my point is that my copy of iCab is still set to mimic IE and is
therefore being served CSS it can't quite handle. Something else for you
to chew on. ;-)
