Having managed to get a complex set of pages of my own design (sort
of) render in css without tables on everything from Win IE5 up, I
thought I'd have no trouble hacking off a quick css version of a
table-based page in the uninspired style of my Uni Department. I had
all sorts of ridiculous troubles, but eventually got something that
worked in IE5 Mac and Moz and IE6 Win. However just before I left for
home I managed to test it on IE5 Win and found it was broken. Not too
surprising because I couldn't understand why I had to do what I had
to do to make it work on the others.
I've fiddled about a bit at home this pm with NN4 as I haven't got
IE5 Win to test on at home and have got more and more confused. I
wonder whether someone could look at the page and suggest how I might
get it to work on older browsers. It's at:
and the problems are:
1. getting the two graphics along the top to sit flush next to each
other, with the longer graphic underneath.
2. Getting the two graphics at the bottom of the page to sit together
as well, and the stripes beneath to have the correct width.
You can see the table version by clicking the link to Institute of
Biomedical and Life Sciences.
I really didn't want to spend time on this (it's enough trouble
collecting the info and photos to go in the page) and nobody would
care if I did it in tables, but it irks me that I can't do it in css.
I must be being really stupid.
PS It doesn't *have* to work on NN4, but I'd be interested to know if
one can get it to work.
