  • IE 7: What's new in Beta 2 Preview

    My question is this...
    Is 'LINK'ing a stylesheet required before 'IMPORT'ing another for successful 
    I have a problem which cropped up with the introduction of IE 7 Beta 2...
    ALL the hovering on my web site doesn't work in IE 7 B2 ! ! !
    I'm not looking for a solution... I'm asking if there is some REQUIREMENT 
    for linking stylesheets before subsequently importing others...
    this works in IE 7 B2...
    this doesn't in IE 7 B2...
    The difference in the two is I've commmented out the line...
    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="css/xreaderbasic.css" />
    This stylesheet, redundantly, specifies a subset of the the 'a:' stuff that 
    exists in the 'IMPORT'ed stylesheet.
    Thank you...
  • Bill Hill - There is only one space after a period

    Oh, BTW, I'd much prefer to post in justified text - but the justification in this edit window sucks big-time because there's no hyphenation. Without hyphenation, justification is totally unjustified.

    You bring back memories of when (30 years ago) I debugged computer photo-typsetting equipment; this presented a problem since the programming was in hardware. Wink

    While justifying a line, first letter-spacing would be applied to the total characters which would fit (to a point) then space-band expansion would be applied. This would be more complicated when hyphenation was turned on. Of course the rules of hyphenation used were only accurate about 90% of the time. Wink

    OBTW, One space after periods, question marks, and exclamation points for proportional fonts is the correct usage, period. Wink

    Two can play at that game...
