Layout problem on Safari (Mac)
I pretty much looked everywhere but saw no reference to the Safari browser.
Well, I have a problem with a layout showing incorrectly on the Safari browser on the Mac.
The layout is http://wbchug.com/check_it
and CSS file is http://wbchug.com/check_it/yazoo_css.css
Works fine in Firefox and IE. Don't have Opera so I haven't tested it yet. Anyone know how to fix this? I would apreciate any help. Thank you.
This is what it should look like.

Urk. Unfortunately, we don't seem to get many Mac designers on here, which is surprising, as its the choice of many many designers out there.
Possibly someone might pipe up with some Mac advice, sorry I cannot help directly.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

It wasn't really a Mac issue. I always develop compliant code for my websites and I had missed something this time.
However with a little rest I went back to this problem and did manage to solve it. Works in all W3C compliant browsers.

I'm Too Late.. SorryOriginally Posted by yazoo
I tried your links but I'm too late--they're removed already. Sorry.
I code exclusively on BBEdit 7.1.4 and use Safari as my proofer, as well as Omni-Web, Mozilla's line, and a clever little app called DEVONthink, which allows one to quickly try out code bits: xhtml, css, xml, rss, anything you like; and because AppWebKit is the exact same framework used by most of the up-to-date browsers for OSX (10.2 and up), I find it, DEVONthink, as well as the little code parser in Safari's "debug" menu (when one enables the debug menu--imagine--a debug menu in a consumer app, that only the developers have the curiosity to activate.
There's also an app, I'm sure you know, called "Safari Enhancer," that turns on debug and other options--it's a tremdously helpful tool when trying out short bits of code.
I'll never stop griping, I suppose, at MS IE, for they haven't a care if they abide by current standards or not; and in my testing, and based on what I've read from others' posts, the standards of the AppWebKit on the new OSX Macs is following the latest from W3C as closely as possible. I would say, 100 percent compliance, from all the code that I've tried and had validated (though some markup will, for one reason or another, fail--that's why they call it debugging).
What reason on earth would Apple have not to implemement the W3C standards to the letter?
As the "underdog" of user agent browsers, I suppose (though not so "under" for the developers of sites intended to look great on any browser), still it only behooves Apple greatly to ensure their AppWebKit is the finest, most standards-compliant foundation around.
MS, on the otherhand, has really no incentive to make the web pages you parse in your Macintosh UA look good in anything other than their very own IE.
Now, please, check the date of the very latest version of IE for Macintosh here: http://free-tiny-css-code.emailblocklist.org/IEdated.png
Sorry to go off.
