Finally Firebird-Friendly
October 20, 2003 — 1:50 am

Justin pointed out a month or two, or three, or so, ago that the gutter lists (blogrolls?) on this page displayed with insanely skewed margins when viewed with Mozilla Firebird. I brushed it off at the time, figuring that Firebird was still a marginal browser in development and just didn’t support the CSS commands I used to customize the UL margins. After all, it looked fine in Internet Explorer.

But Firebird recommendations kept popping up all over the place, and I’ve always been a fan of cross-platform compatibility, even if I don’t switch between platforms much myself (the endless search for a better browser has never interested me; I just don’t care if I can get a web page to load half-a-second faster). So I searched some CSS tutorial pages to find out if there was a more universal way of coding the UL tags. And props go to the W3C’s page on “Box model” specs for providing a solution.

This page now looks fine not only in Internet Explorer, but also in Mozilla, Mozilla Firebird, Netscape and Opera. At least in the Windows XP versions of those particular browsers . . .

Any Mac, Linux, or misc.-other users care to confirm said fineness from your own computing environments? Gracias.
