Topic: CSS compliance at last?
As promised in some other thread, this is a re-post of some tool I just found. I'm excited by it, because there are some nice things that are in the CSS spec that honestly are "just broken" by IE 5.5 & IE 6 (well -- eralier browsers also, but probably are not worth my time anyhow).
So it appears that this would allow me to write CSS code that works say in firefox, and without too much worrying, would probably also work in IE 5.5 and IE 6. I personally think it's a reasonable approach -- certainly an improvement over me bashing in my own head with a baseball bat because some stupid "alternative CSS implementation" in IE seems to screw something up.
I'm not saying here, that without this you can't possibly implement a good looking website. But, there are things that unquestionably simply don't work in most versions of IE, that ought to. So either you simply "don't use these features", or you start hacking around with your CSS that only are noticed by IE and not firefox (or vice-versa).
Some examples that I was interested in are addressed by this script. Examples are:
Has anyone here used it? If so what do you think?
If you have not yet used it, are you going to think about it? If not, why not?
Are there other libraries out there that do the same thing (better?, different?)
Again, I'm not saying that this is the only solution that makes sense, but to me it is quite appealing because it would seem I could code CSS once -- correctly, and have it pretty much work as expected.
I did see the following warning with the code:
IE7 is not dynamic. That is, if you change the structure of your document programatically, then you must refresh the IE7 CSS rules. Do this by calling document.recalc() after you have finished altering the document
