Absolute positioning, Netscape vs IE
I have designed a page of hyperlinks so that each link pops a window with an image inside. The pop-up window tightly hugs the image so there is now white space between the border of the window and the image. Or so I would like it.
In Netscape, this doesn't pose a problem but Internet explorer shows a nasty little border to the left of the pop-up window.
The only way I found to solve this problem is the rather dirty method of using CSS to offset the horizontal attribute by 3 pixels "left:-3px" but obviously, this then has an effect on Netscape.
I now believe that there is no solution to the problem and that I am wasting my time trying to look for a fix. It is in my nature to want to overcome these problems at all costs however so I am unable to progress with the site until the problem is fixed or until my suspicians are confirmed.
Any help would make my day.
To work around browserspecific (and version specific) CSS bugs you can very often use other CSS bugs in browsers.
If you tell which version you are seeing problems in then I could offer a workaround.
BTW, this is a good resource of CSS bug workarounds if you want to look into it yourself
