As I completed my recent website redesign, I came across a strange CSS bug in IE6/Win. I see similar bugs in IE5 and 5.5 all the time, but this is a first for me in IE6. The background color for my
<h2> tag disappears on the first visible instance of it. The text is there, as well as the padding and margins. Only the background disappears. As far as it being visible, I had hoped to apply an invisible
<h2> tag right above the first, but to no avail.
As we all know, there will be no more updates to IE/Win until Longhorn is released in the 2005–2006 timeframe. Mainstream use of this OS is not anticipated until circa 2008. I’m open to suggestions on how to workaround this bug. Mozilla 1.4 and Opera 7.11 don’t seem to be affected. Gotta love that IE…
To quote some of the other Coding Forums members, “IE, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.”
I love the web.
