Anyone know what support is like in the main browsers? (IE, Mozilla, IE Mac, Konqueror, and the dreaded nutscrape) And I mean actual support, not what the makers claim it supports Wink

Dunno. I was only thinking if looking into it, if there's decent support in the main browsers.

From what I've heard CSS2 support is second to none right now, so there's not much point in trying to use it yet (shame really because it all looks pretty nice Very Happy).

Mozilla FireBird does a reasonable job at rendering a large percentage of CSS 2 and Opera 7.xx has reasonable support whereas Micro$oft IE 6.0 tends to follow its own rules with regards to CSS 2 rendering and especially with reference to CSS-P.

As for Netscape 4.7x, it would choke on a large percentage of CSS 2.0 selectors since it was designed before CSS 2.0 was finalised. For a very old CSS 2 support chart you can look here.

I think IE just follows it's own rules about everything Smile

I saw a more up-to-date CSS2 chart not long ago, and while there seems to be a lot of CSS2 stuff available to fool around with on each individual browser, the only thing universal across the chart was DISPLAY: BLOCK and DISPLAY: NONE -- but aren't those really CSS1 ? Surprised

I just had a bad experience with IE (an IExperience?), and I'd thought I'd add it to this thread. Over the past few days, I've been working on a slightly new (better?) version of the php article I've got here on 4webhelp. Along with tidying up some of the language and code examples, I've been working very hard to put it into XHTML using CSS for all the layout and formatting. For the code examples, I decided to have "Code:" at the top of each box...I added it using the following css:
Code:
div.code:before{
     content: "Code:";
     color: #FFFFFF;
     background-color: #666666;
     font-weight: bold;
}

In mozilla, this works great...in IE, nothing shows. I also tried the following, for the notes in the article:
Code:
p.note:before{
     content: "Note" attr(title) ": ";
     font-weight: bold;
}

In mozilla, this puts Note: infront of the paragraph (including whatever was in title="" if there was anything)...nothing appears in IE, so the reader doesn't even know it's a note.

I can easily work around these problems, but it means adding stuff to the XHTML which I could leave out.

Once again, all I can do is blame microsoft...

Micro$oft has issues with the pseudo :before and you can forget trying to make it understand the CSS Attribute selectors, but such is life.
