Sonofabitch! As if we didn't have enough to do already. There are days I
really despair of CSS. I always code standards-compliant code, but I spend
more than half my time fighting browser bugs.
I test in multiple browsers at multiple resolutions, and it's still not
enough. I love CSS, but these browser bugs will send me to an institution.
A friend of mine codes in HTML using tables, transparent spacer gifs, and
almost no CSS. He can whip up a new design in far less time than I can,
because he's not worried about testing fancy CSS. Yet his pages almost
always work as expected cross-browser, while I'm wasting time tracking down
and working around bugs. For him it's simple time economics: it takes him
less time to create a site, and the average client and visitor will never
know the difference. Sigh.
Thanks Dunstan, one more thing to worry about! ;)
(Yes, actually, I was aware that bugs can differ by OS, particularly where
IE is concerned. It's just painful to be reminded of it when you've just
spent the day fighting CSS bugs.)
