Re: Almost Finished - Re: [NH] Multiple Browser CSS
Thanks for this! It is modular, and one can make a template and just plop
the contents in.
It looks funny in Opera 3.62, but it is still legible. It is even workable
in Lynx. In Mozilla, and Opera 6.2 if the links are long enough, they
overlap the footer. This is easy to fix by making the main longer.

only has color where there is text. I suppose this is the way CSS is
designed, but I also thought it is supposed to be for the layout.
There must be a way to do this, I just haven't figured it out yet.
If I do not specify a background color for the nav, that is different from
the main contents, it will do what I want.

- I have something I would like tested in Opera 5.x. Is anyone still running
a copy of 5.x? If so a private email would be appreciated.

- What is wrong with using percentage tables?
On the whole I just use 90% tables, perhaps 100% or 50%in some cases for the effect. This is in combination with stylesheets external and internal. The only problem is wanting a border around some cells and not others or around the whole table but not the cells. I can see the argument but not every page should look the same.
