positioning elements in NAV4.7
Hi - wonder if any one can help me with this. I am building a site and I'm trying use as much css as possible (to learn it). I have everything working OK in IE5+6 and Net6 but the positioning of the menu and logo on the left get messed up in net4.7. It still puts them on the left side but spreads them out down the page way too much. I have thought of making an alternate net4.7 freindly site but if there's anything I can do to fix up the existing css that would be better.
Thanks for any help.
the site is here
the three elements on the left margin are controlled by css using classes and <span> as follows:
position: absolute; left: 15px; top: 15px;
position: absolute; left: 15px; top: 23%;
position: absolute; left: 30px; top: 30%;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
position: absolute; left: 15px; top: 70%;
html for margin:
<!-- //*BEGINING OF html for left logo, menu and red dot image - left margin -->
<span class="marginlogo"><img src="images/buttons/spaga_black.gif" width="124" height="43"></span>
<span class="marginmenu"><img src="images/backgrounds/menubkg.jpg" width="124" height="196"></span>
<span class="marginred"><img src="images/buttons/spaga_red_transp.gif" width="123" height="119"></span>
<a href="index2.php">> HOME</a><br>
<a href="about.php">> about SPAGA</a><br>
<a href="address.php">> addresses</a><br>
<a href="artists.php">> artists</a><br>
<a href="contact.php">> contact </a><br>
<a href="exhibitions.php">> exhibitions</a><br>
<a href="members.php">> members</a> <br>
<a href="guidelines.php">> guidelines</a><br>
<a href="links.php">> links</a>
<!-- //*END OF html for left logo, menu and red dot image - left margin -->
thank for any help.
That's because NS 4.x has limited support for CSS positioning. It has problems with position: and percentage units.
Thats what I figured - just hoped there would be a way around it.
I have a NAV4.7 version of the site up now that is basically a very stripped down tables version of my css site with a browser detect that send NAV4.7 visiters to the NAV version.
do a browser sensing script and make a tables version for NN4.7. That's what I'd do.
I'd make an upgrade page and tell them to get the latest version of their favorite browser. It's
about standards, baby!

Or you could use the hide trick.
And create a paragraph with that link you posted.
It will only display on browsers that are not CSS compiant.
That's the same information from the link that I posted...
