My print styles is/was supposed to follow the third: giving me text
wrapping. That's what I meant in my previous post. NorwEnglish may be
confusing at times-- even to me. :)
A post on another list may have given me the key to why IE isn't
behaving in my case: I use IE-expressions for screen (min/max-width
simulations), which I may have to override with '!important' (or
something) for my fluid print styles to work.
I'll test that when I get around to it.
It is a bit strange that IE won't print fluid, since I use @media rules
to separate styles for screen and print. Thought I had covered it all,
but IE/win is a strange animal (even for a farm-assistant).
So note to myself, and others: *IE-expressions may confuse IE when
something is going to print*.
Jim, just be glad you don't have to debug my stylesheets. They are
written in a "not very human-friendly way", since I write them for
browsers only. Better I debug them myself, since I'm used to one-liners
and compact CSS.
