Recipe Summaries - Standards and Microsoft
Until last weekend, the majority of my readers used some version of Internet Explorer to view my website. Something changed, and now I have a readership of which 75% are using a Mozilla based client. This is a problem for me because I have known about an issue with my website that I've been trying to fix for the last month and failed.
My recipe summaries don't display properly in browsers other than Internet Explorer. This is mainly because Internet Explorer is not fully CSS standard compliant and I had to come up with creative ways to get IE to present the table the way I desired it to. Unfortunately, some of the other browsers are standards compliant and render the tables awkwardly.
I've been working on this problem for the last couple days and when I come up with a solution, I will convert all my recipe representations over to the format that will at least work with IE and Firefox (that's my current goal).
Anyone know how to do vertical text in CSS with firefox? I rely on vertical text to save horizontal space in my recipes and use:
but this does not seem to work in Firefox.
The other issue I have is intersecting table elements (I need table elements to form non-rectangular shapes [like L's]). If someone can give me some tips, I'd be much appreciated.
