Weird IE Rendering Bug Fixed

Website92 words1 minutes to read

Last summer, I posted about a strange problem I was having in Internet Explorer. The browser wasn’t properly drawing certain elements to the screen, namely <hn> tags with background images, colors, or borders. It was all very frustrating.

In the end, I just chalked it up to Internet Explorer sucking, and left it alone. Recently, however, my question was answered.

For elements that act as though they were relatively positioned, then go ahead and use position:relative; on it. It seems to fix it without a hitch.

Just thought I’d pass this along.
