Hmm...

At least it's not as ugly as on iCab.

Heh...

The wonders of IE's crappy CSS support. Don't you just *love* having to work around the bugs (features?) in IE when coding in CSS?

?

On the contrary, I've found IE to have the most complete CSS of all the OS 9 browsers (except maybe NS 7).

That's interesting. I use IE almost exclusively in OS 9, and it definitely doesn't look like that for me. Works fine.

Peace,
Drew

Well, for 9

For 9 it may be the best there is when it comes to CSS, but that isn't really saying a whole lot Smile

Besides, there is an unofficial build of Mozilla 1.3.1 here. It'll run circles around IE in CSS rendering. Though the speed probably isn't that great.

Do all AF pages look that way

Do all AF pages look that way for you?

I've actually seen it just now on one or two pages, and I thought it might have something to do with the CSS not loading properly...

I dunno. But it does work OK for me. I'll take screen caps if you want...

Peace,
Drew

I usually use Moz on my iBook

I usually use Moz on my iBook, but I just installed a 10GB drive in the iMac. Most people just use what is there, and the most up-to-date of what is included w/ OS X shows an ugly AF. Most of the time I see the nice & purdy AF with Moz.
