floating divs not flowing on Android zoom

Msg#: 4361541 posted 7:29 pm on Sep 12, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have a page with 3 floated columns. If I resize the window or zoom in, I want the floats to flow one underneath the other when the window isn't wide enough. This works in PC-type browsers, but on the Android text re-flows, but floated columns don't. So when I zoom in the right column(s) get cut off as if they were columns in a table.

How do I get this layout to flow on the Android? Will I have the same problem on iPhones?


<!DOCTYPE html>
<div class="col">
column 1 content

<div class="col">
column 2 content

<div class="col">
column 3 content


.col {
float: left;
margin-right: 25px;

Hi george93510, and welcome to WebmasterWorld :)

I would expect the provided code to work as desired - have you double-double checked there is nothing else affecting the floats?

Also, what browser?

It works as desired on Firefox and Internet Explorer. The problem is on the Android browser.
