(That's why I never buy any books about the subject. Good browsers get
updated so often that most of what's written in books about bugs and
workarounds is outdated by the time they hit the shelf.)
The complete lack of logic behind most bugs is causing confusion even
among somewhat more experienced developers. No really complete lists
exist, and it would be a nightmare to create and maintain such lists
anyway. There are millions of markup/CSS combinations that _might_
trigger bugs in one or another browser. Most bugs are found in IE/win at
the moment, but that's another matter.
To avoid some of the confusion, look at standard-support before deciding
whether it's a bug or incomplete support you're dealing with - in each
case. This list might help a bit:
....although that, and all other support-lists I've seen, are incomplete.
The rest is solved through practical experience, testing, validating,
and asking around on discussion-lists like css-d.
First and foremost - don't hunt for bugs and look for workarounds. Most
bugs are created by the designer - not the browsers. A good
understanding of how it should work will counter-act most designer-bugs.
The rest... is just bugs... <http://www.gunlaug.no/contents/molly_1_15.html>
