Description David Barto 2007-04-25 09:05:28 PDT
Don Gillespie found the following bug in safari which I reproduced in the overnight build from April 24/25:
The reason the page does not appear to work in Safari and does in Firefox is that Safari and Firefox forgive errors differently, sometimes in favor of the programmer and sometimes not. In any case, the page has gross CSS bugs. Go to the page and take a look at the JavaScript Console (Safari) or Error Console (Firefox). You might have to perform a Clear and then redisplay. Lots of problems. This is not marginalization, but rather simple lack of testing and QA.

I'm recommending that this be marked as a 'bug' in Safari as it is clear that the page can be rendered properly; as FireFox does.

Works for me (no JavaScript errors) with a local debug build of WebKit r21083 with Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on Mac OS X 10.4.9 (8P135).

I loaded the page (looks very close to Firefox 2.0.0.3, although I didn't go over every pixel) and hovering the mouse over various menu items didn't cause any JavaScript errors that I saw.

David, do you have exact steps to reproduce?  Do you have any haxies, APEs or Input Managers installed with your Safari?  If so, please disable them and try viewing the page again.

Could you also post a URL to where this note by Don Gillespie is published?

then scroll down to the Government & Education bit.

My experience was that the css on the left side of the page didn't  quite display correctly, though rolling over it does display correctly.

Thanks!  Apparently Google hadn't indexed this yet when I searched.  :)

I don't see any anomalies; please provide screenshots.

Considering the page was designed for IE 6 (per the outlying content to the right of the main content--in both Firefox and Safari/WebKit), I'd say the page works very well in WebKit nightlies!

On my machine, this looks like a slight difference in how menu items are aligned. Apparently, this depends on the fonts chosen in Safari preferences.

I don't see fonts clipped like this, either!  David, do you have Verdana installed?  The Web Inspector says the computed "font-family" style is "verdana".

Screen shot of search button misplaced

I did notice that the search button is obviously misplaced, although Firefox has the same issue.  Probably an MSIE 6 specific issue.

I do not have veranda installed.

Uh-oh, that looks fine in both Safari and Firefox here :)

I just checked the original page using 6/8/07 build. Looks OK now.
