IE 7 beta


Now anyone involved in the web development industry would be aware of the many problems caused by Internet Explorer's substandard support for CSS standards. The best way I've found to deal with these problems is to design for more standards-aware browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Apple's Safari and then add in small "adjustments" to make it work in Internet Explorer. As you can imagine, this is not a task I enjoy. Well, there is good news ahead. The recent beta release of IE (IE 7 beta 1) by Microsoft has already fixed a couple of CSS bugs, and its been announced that in the second beta, the following additional bug fixes will be included.

In IE7, we will fix as many of the worst bugs that web developers hit as we can, and we will add the critical most-requested features from the standards as well. Though you won’t see (most of) these until Beta 2, we have already fixed the following bugs from PositionIsEverything and Quirksmode:

  • Peekaboo bug
  • Guillotine bug
  • Duplicate Character bug
  • Border Chaos
  • No Scroll bug
  • 3 Pixel Text Jog
  • Magic Creeping Text bug
  • Bottom Margin bug on Hover
  • Losing the ability to highlight text under the top border
  • IE/Win Line-height bug
  • Double Float Margin Bug
  • Quirky Percentages in IE
  • Duplicate indent
  • Moving viewport scrollbar outside HTML borders
  • 1 px border style
  • Disappearing List-background
  • Fix width:auto

In addition we’ve added support for the following

  • HTML 4.01 ABBR tag
  • Improved (though not yet perfect) fallback
  • CSS 2.1 Selector support (child, adjacent, attribute, first-child etc.)
  • CSS 2.1 Fixed positioning
  • Alpha channel in PNG images
  • Fix :hover on all elements
  • Background-attachment: fixed on all elements not just body
  • IEBlog : Standards and CSS in IE
