I realize this isn't the place to discuss CSS implementations, but I was
wondering about your thoughts on browsers that decide to go their own
way with regard to the spec. Actually, I would like some force to be
applied to the developers...
The browser in question is mozilla! They have decided that font pixel
sizing is wrong (in most cases I agree), so they take over the user's
CSS and provide their own interpretation.
Now, I am not one to prescribe behavior for anyone. But I was wondering
if there is offense taken by others by this non standard approach. Is
anyone from mozilla here to explain there decision to abandon standards?
Perhaps mozilla should be denigrated in favor of other choices... at
least for people who believe in standards.
The reason i bring this up is because we have built a beautiful,
standards compliant, 3 column, tableless layout which works in all
browsers. The problem occurs when a user resizes the text up in mozilla.
We have defined tab's text to be pixel based because we needed to use a
background image for the tabs (using a background-color and sliding
image broke all over the place). So we made the decision to go pixel
based for this one thing (the text is large to begin with). The layout
looks great in all browsers except mozilla when text is increased.
For our project we are going to provide the user with information of how
mozilla is screwed up and leave it as is -- as it works everywhere else
(5th gen and up).
