    - Putting an empty doctype at the beginning: <!DOCTYPE >
    - Putting an <HTML> tag in the middle of the page between the <STYLE> and the <BODY> tags.

    I'm surprised IE actually showed something.


    To which guys are you referring?
    C


    The guys who demonstrated those examples.


    Yes, there were some typos, but Trident parser is solid enough to handle them. The samples I uploaded at the Sandbox have them corrected. thanks for pointing them out.

    My samples are ready for public consumption, when I figure out how to post them, I will make them available.

    I just posted some of the demo files in the SandBox

    Hey Yin,

    the page is http://handball.bfc-preussen.de/">http://handball.bfc-preussen.de - content is all in German but this should not be a problem. The main page layout is fine but when you hit http://handball.bfc-preussen.de/galerie/index.php">http://handball.bfc-preussen.de/galerie/index.php the layout goes berserk. Thanks for looking at it. (Just checked again - Opera does have more issues with the page than IE Smiley though is so close to standard)



    Please correct me if I mistaken. One issue I can see on this particular page is that the right column is shifted to the right by about 50px. Apparently this is introduced by the left and right margin of the DIV with the style “Chronic”. It seems that IE doesn’t take into account the margins of block elements between the TD and inner TABLE when calculating the available width. Since this issue has been there in IE6 as well, I suggest a workaround. Instead of setting the margins on the DIV, adding left and right padding on the outer TD. Please let me know whether this works for you.

    I need some help on a little layout issue I haven't been able to fix. I coded a webpage for my team handball team with a fixed layout. But on a few pages I have some layout problems with the width of the page - the right column then gets messes up. Can someone tell me what the issue is here? Firefox and Opera renders the page just as I want - IE 6 + 7 and don't. The code is (almost) standards complient. Running it through the W3 Validator I get errors on the marquee tag (yeah, oh well) and some things related to that.

    I hope somene can help me, thank you!
    Kind regards,
    Gregor


    Gregor,

    If you can show me the page, I will look into it to see what the issues are.

    Thanks

    Rowan's problem may not be a new one, but this and this sure are. Both are regressions from IE6 (and I've reported both via Connect on the Vista beta program).


    The second issue has been fixed. We will look into the first one. Thanks for reporting these issues.

    Thank you for reporting IE issues. The bug you reported in  "new CSS bugs in IE7" is actually not a new issue. In IE 6, the !Doctype switch needs to appear first in the document source to take effect. Therefore the page is recognized as a compat mode document by IE6. IE7 allows !Doctype switch after the XML prologue, so your page is in strict mode if viewed using IE7. In fact, this issue also exists with IE6 if viewed as a strict mode document.

    Ah, so that's the difference between his and my example. Mine does use strict mode as it has no xml declaration.


    If it's parsed by IE7, there is no difference, because IE7 allows the !Doctype switch is be placed after !XML prologue. However IE6 treats Rowan's page as compat mode document.
