Why I Was Swearing Late Last Night
Two words: Internet Explorer.
I have been working on a website for a friend. It’s not quite ready for primetime, but It’s come a long way in 20 billable hours.
So, after a nap because my brain was tired, I decided to test it in Internet Explorer.
It didn’t render properly, either in regular mode of “compatibility mode” (It is to laugh). It worked in every other browser I had (Opera, for both Windows and Linux, Firefox, Konqueror, just to name a few) but not in IE.
It took me about 25 minutes and lots of creative language to find the tag that was causing IE to malform the page.
Some while ago, there was a big hoop-la when Microsoft announced that IE 8 would be “standards compliant.”
