PT Barnum’s rule lives alive and well that the buggiest, most inexplicable, frustrating (tabless) Web browser in terns of its refusal to follow Web Standards has the most users.
Again, I have found that my time in web design is spent:
* 30% developing a solid design in a web-standard browser such as FireFox
* 70% testing and coding in hacks and fixes for things Internet Explorer does for no sane reason
The latest is that applying a solid 20px border on the left side of a
blockquote class causes all content following to be shifted left, out of view, by 20px, as if I applied a negative margin. Removing the border clears the problem. Putting the border on the top, right, or bottom, clears the problem.
A browser with voodoo.
