Shorthand for borders is it them browser incompatibilities again.. SuzyUK msg:1218546 5:43 pm on Jan 9, 2003 (gmt 0) I often see the shortened code for borders i.e.
border: 1px solid black;
as opposed to:
border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; border-color: black;
I have always tended to use the full version of this as I've found (especially Opera) doesn't like the shortened version..is this another
"Only IE Likes it" thing?

Hi SuzyUK- I can't remember any problems at all with shorthand borders. What version(s) of Opera are you testing? BlobFisk msg:1218548 6:01 pm on Jan 9, 2003 (gmt 0)
As far as I know, the border shorthand is understood by all the major browsers, even Netscape 4.7 (just tested it to make sure!) renders it fine. <edit>Confirmed NS4.7 test</edit> [ edited by: BlobFisk at 6:04 pm (utc) on Jan. 9, 2003] korkus2000 msg:1218549 6:02 pm on Jan 9, 2003 (gmt 0)
I thought that all CSS browsers could recognize it. SuzyUK msg:1218550 7:55 pm on Jan 9, 2003 (gmt 0)
Hey guys thanks
you know what, I was using it without the px..IE recognised it but no-one else as soon as I put in the px it was OK again..
At least asking the question and getting your answers made me look again..now how much code bloat can I get rid of...:)
<added> just checked and that's the code that FrontPage gives you (without the px), no wonder .....do you suppose this is the last of my bad habits learnt from that (nice polite word) ....no neither do I ;)</added>
