    CSS is tottaly messed up in Mac IE

    http://www.bookmanandson.com/

    Okay. If you look at this page in either IE or Firefox, you get the main part of the image totally centered (vertically and horizontally) in your screen no matter what the size is, But in Mac IE, the whole box is shoved way up to the top, so that you only see it from the center down. Is there any sort of CSS hack to get around this?

    Yes, it's called the "Don't Bother To Code for IE5/Mac" hack.

    It's a pain in the ***, and as Microsoft won't be developing for the platform any more, there's only going to be fewer and fewer users - a growing number of developers are adding it to the Netscape 4 bin.

    Yeah. That would seem like the thing to do. I'm to the point where I'm skipping the Netscape 4 bin and throwing it into the WebTV bin.

    Hi,

    Mac will only implement the top 50% when its in quirks mode which would mean dropping down to htm 4.01 without uri.

    You may just prefer to hide the negative margin from ie mac (using the commented backslash hack) and let it sit at the top of the screen (or givr it a small margin downwards.)

    Paul
