this one goes back to the famous http://forums.webdeveloper.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=15229
I think I sorted it out a little bit, and here's the state of affairs as of now:
For MSIE and Opera; it should work on any platform. (It doesn't, though.)
where the first one demonstrates the case without, the latter one with use of overflow (hence the 'Over' at the end).
For Mozilla (Netscape, but also Safari), a modification is required. See:
The necessary change to the code is in the width of the html>body .aktuell_links and …rechts (left and right). (The wirting of html>body goes back to the quoted thread.)
I should add that in order to see what construction is about, please click on 'zum Stück' and 'hiker'.
Now, the problem #1 is, that this does not work with MSIE/WinXP: other than any other browser, this one won't display any borders at all. I have not a clue why. And that is therefore my question #2 for this thread.
As an attempt on solving the problem described above, I wrote a page much closer to the script originally posted by Dave in the thread linked to above. (This script is still visible at http://www.steffiweismann.de/lager/divtechnik/original.html; my first modification can be found at http://www.steffiweismann.de/lager/divtechnik/orig/modification2.html)
This newly written code is here:
Despite all extras in this latter script, – problem and question #2 – I can't get M to show the border in the middle (although I applied all modificaions that adapted the page to aparent Mozilla needs in the older version linked to above). Maybe these scripts are of use for somebody, and maybe somebody has an idea on how to make Mozilla show borders as supposed to?
