Correct! IE7 is displaying the last word of an iconized external link

Yes, FF is alright in this example. Is it a bug? Yes and no (not more
than in IE6):
* This solution is good working in IE6, for I used the * html hack
* I made this page at a moment I couldn't check IE7. - And I had a
bit of hope that IE7 would do it better than IE6...
* Later I tested in IE7, and saw IE7 was doing the same as IE6. So I
updated my English version with a Conditional Comment for all
IE´s, including IE7.
* ... but didn´t update my Dutch page yet.
Point is, that FF, Opera and IE where reacting different. To get Opera
alright, I had to add a line to correct Opera. Happily this did not
influence FF. But IE (which was right before I made the Opera fix) was
reacting wrong on the Opera fix! So I had to make an IE only fix to
correct the Opera fix for IE (are you still there? ;-) ). The whole
operation was like pushing on an air-bed: pushing down the one browser
was lifting the others. :-)

* ... so the use of a <span> instead of a <u> will not make any
difference (css still the same). Only solution is to use the CC to
catch IE7. - If IE8 is coming, we have to see again...
I just updated my Dutch version
with the CC and now IE7 has to obey too (in the last "Lorem" paragraph)
- I´ll check that tomorrow.
To compare: I renamed the old version in
Conclusion: the updated English version
is the one with the best description and performance.
It´s less complicating to maintain 1 site in 1 language! :-)
