Apologies. I did an HTML validation, but can you validate css withing
an html page? I'd also introduced some other changes, but, it makes
no difference. The original change I made was just to the DTD and
that's what sparked the thing off.
As my later posting shows, there's a problem here, not just for me.
This confirms my deep hatred of the quirks mode thing. This, along
with the incessant and horrible browser hacks that have code that
looks as if its escaped from a perl regular expression (pass the sick
bag, Alice) makes me feel that css is becoming so complex that it is
unusable for normal people. That will, of course, mean that it won't
get used, and autogenerated Windows IE6 code will be the standard.
(Pass the sick bag again, Alice).
PS As luck would have it my ISP's mail server has been down for the
last few hours so I can send mail but have to view the archives to
see replies. This is a communications nightmare.
