Louis Kessler’s Behold Blog » Blog Entry           prev Prev   Next next

Monday, July 19, 2004 - Mon, 19 Jul 2004

As I was testing my Behold Blog (i.e. this page), I found that the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) used to lay out the page caused much of the text to overlap if the browser window was made too small. This was not good, and seems to have been there since I implemented it. I took a look at the CSS and javascript on the page, did some research, and found I couldn’t get around the problem, because the “min-width” variable does not work correctly in all versions of Internet Explorer.

I worked out one solution by setting the columns to a fixed width, but it looked bad with a wide window since the right side will be empty.

So I decided to take it apart and implement it with an html table instead. After about an hour of work, I finally got something that should be more stable, and looks almost the same as what I had before - without the glitch.

Netscape didn’t support the XHTML that it used, but now with these changes under Netscape, the appearance of this Blog is at least in table form, whereas it wasn’t before.
