    Browser bugs & differences with CSS

    Is there somewhere or an article that lists and defines the differences and limitations of the common browsers with CSS code? I'm thinking particularly of workarounds and differences between Netscape 6x onwards and IE 5.x and onwards?

    I have a specific problem that's probably a doddle for some of you:

    The page www.designbrook.com/test/services.htm has a left-hand column that, with the height set to 100%, displays just dandy in N'scape but only to the bottom of the screen in IE. When I scroll down, the left-hand column (with background colour), scrolls up the screen instead of continuing to display to the bottom.

    What am I doing wrong please?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks Greg but it only shows what's supported, not the bugs. It shows both NS and IE as supporting height of course but not any differences or bugs in the way they do it for example. I'm really looking for something that highlights the bugs and resultant tweaks, work-arounds and hacks.

    The only way to really do that is through experience. It hasn't really all been catalogued in one place. You can try http://www.tantek.com/, the site of a Microsoft engineer who tries to keep tabs on as many of these things as possible.
