I have made a lovely horizontal navbar that works beautifully in NS 6+ and IE4+, but fails on NS4 (of course). So I am writing a seperate stylesheet for this *lovely* browser
TIP: A great workaround to get around the lack of support for float in NS4 is to put a 1 pixel gif between the links and align="right" in the IMG tag, so they spread out across the page. Success! (this gif is also a great boon for people using screenreaders according to W3c guidelines, as it seperates out the links, but remember the blank alt tag)
I can do without float for background color change on mouseover, i think, unless anyone has any ideas
My problem is: the alignment is staggered: each block is a bit lower down than the one before it. I suspect it is 1 pixel and related to that gif. Does anyone know of any workarounds for this?
Also, on a vertical navbar, I have attached "strong" to the link you are in and this now messes up the spacing of the blocks. I have tried to remove borders and padding from strong, which at least makes it visible, but the block is only as long as the text now, and takes up less room than the <a> styled blocks on the active links. So looks a dogs dinner. Any Ideas?
Finally, and thank you for your patience, does anyone know why css styled white text won't show up on a coloured background in NS4?
