Re: The new twist on the browser wars
I haven't don extensive testing with IE7 Beta yet. I did have it on PC for a couple of days and I test my sites out on Browser Cam which has the beta2 release available.
All that said, I haven't seen any big differences in IE6 vs IE7 other than the tabbed interface and other facelifts.
My biggest headache in IE6 vs Standard Compliant UA's is not the standards, but how MSIE interpets the box model.
For example: to get a left column in a css-p site to look the same in
both browsers I use a conditional statement:
//Here's the css for the other browsers//
margin:0 0 10px 24px;
//for IE in an ie only style sheet//
That's a 12px difference. It works, but doesn't make any sense. The padding is set at 15px - where did the other 3px go?
