Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-483) buggy css layouts / patch for table based layout
Date Thu, 20 Apr 2006 02:35:07 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-483?page=comments#action_12375230 ] 

Thorsten Berger commented on JS2-483:

Ate, thanks for applying my patch.
I also found the reason of the font size problem: It's a missing DOCTYPE (xhtml transitional)
in tcolumns/layout.vm. But don't ask me why IE gets confused by that (imho it assumes a html
4 DOCTYPE then, but that doesn't explain the different font sizes).

The attached patch tcolumns-patch-JS2-483.txt also contains some very small fixes of tags
the w3c validator complained about.
I still have some minor problems with IE and will try to solve them soon.

Regards, Thorsten

> The current css based layouts are broken on Mozilla/Firefox. Columns are glued to the
left instead of being arranged side by side. Imho css layouts are generally still very buggy.
> I switched back (again) to table based layouts and noticed some side effects regarding
font sizes in IE and some problems with the customizer. I believe some of the recent changes
(esp. with the 2.0 final release) to the portal layout have not been adapted to the tcolumns/layout.vm.
> So I wrote a new table based layout.vm and used the actual css based layout.vm as a master.
I just inserted two or three tables and removed the css width attributes.
> This now works as expected and exactly looks like the css based layout.
> I'd like to see the attached patch to be applied. Please read a comment in the patch
about a workaround to handle .99% widths.
