Technical Issue

by Nathan Hamm on 8/23/2004 · 3 comments

I just noticed the text looks kind of bunched together in Internet Explorer (thank goodness that’s the only thing wrong that I noticed). Rather than be a zealot and tell you that you’d be a better person for using Firefox, I shall instead ask if anyone knows what I want to look for in my css.


UPDATE: Martey suggested a change to the letter-spacing. Well, that technically works. But, it makes things look normal in IE and dumb in Firefox. Considering I use the latter and that it’s still legible in IE, I may leave this one alone for now.

UPDATE: I fixed it.

You probably want to change the letter-spacing attribute. Speaking of zealotry, I’m running Linux, so I am unable to see what the site looks like in Internet Explorer. You might want to try changing the font and see if that helps.

When I went to The Marmot’s Hole, where I got the css and index.php in the first place, I noticed that he’s got the same issue in IE.

It’s funny too, i also noticed that there are other funny things going on with the fonts in IE. God, I hate that piece of crap. It’s so unforgiving of my errors.

Have you seen it in Safari? The sidebar gets pushed all the way below the main content column. It’s fine on the article’s page, just broken on the front page.
Try tweaking the div widths a little, or adjusting the margins.

And I won’t take it personally if you snuff this comment once you’ve read it.
