White pixel (dot) on dark background on iPad 2 Safari

There is a white pixel (dot) that is showing up in the bottom left of my page. You can see it here:


If I look at the page in Safari on an iPad 2, the dot appears. In Chrome, no white dot. Here’s the code for the page. It’s a blank page - no content - just a skeleton. I’ve tested this on an iPad 2 with iOS 6. Here’s the code for the test:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>White Dot Test</title>
<style type="text/css" title="text/css">
/* <![CDATA[ */
body {
	background: black;
/* ]]> */


Can’t seem to figure this out. Any help is greatly appreciated.


I can’t see a white dot on my ipad2 unless I;m looking in the wrong place or its so small I can’t see it.

BTW your site flags up a Mcaffee warning that you may want to check out:

Warning: Suspicious Site
Are you sure you want to go there?

http://dev.tonedeafdesign.com/test/white-dot.html may be risky to visit.

Why were you redirected to this page?

When we visited this site, we found it exhibited one or more risky behaviors.

Funny - I no longer see the white pixel, either. Glad it’s gone, though. :slight_smile:

I see the warning from Mcafee. Working on getting that removed, although I’m not sure on that. I’ve come across that before and it’s a bit of a pain. The site is only used for my testing purposes.
