Safari Issue

Msg#: 4131387 posted 2:31 pm on May 12, 2010 (gmt 0)

I have a site that renders fine in Firefox and IE but does not render correctly in Safari. I think that the main issue is that there must be some incompatibility in the css file which puts all the headings and menus in the wrong location.

What tool do I need or in what mode can I put Safari to debug this?

Welcome to the forums, amivo.

I would make a copy of the css and html files, and then start playing around, removing and changing the likely candidates for trublemaker. Actually, first I would validate the HTML and CSS:

W3C Validator - HTML [validator.w3.org]
W3C Validator - CSS [jigsaw.w3.org]

Trying to fix cross-browser display problems with non-valid code can drive you quite mad, because each browser has their own error-recovery routine, and you never know whether you are seeing the results of your code or the idiosyncratic results of an error-recovery action.

Thanks Tedster for the welcome and for the links.

My css file passed but there are several errors in the html, guess firefox and ie are more lenient than safari. I will fix the code and see if that helps safari.
