Description Gavin Sherlock 2007-11-25 12:35:34 PST
Go to URL - majority of page doesn't show up.  Works fine in Firefox (  Inspector Console doesn't indicate any errors.  Also, the related urls:


have the same problem, and also work in Firefox.  Tested in r28007 on 10.4.11.  Note, the page also does not work in either release Safari 3.0.4 (523.12), or 2.0.4 (419.3) under Tiger (10.4.11 and 10.4.10 respectively), so is not a regression.  I haven't tested on Leopard.

Confirmed with a local debug build of WebKit r28012 with Safari 3.0.4 (523.12) on Mac OS X 10.4.11 (8S165).

The problem is in the <http://www.sancarlosll.org/_themes/quad/quad1011.css> stylesheet which contains the following rule:


The "color:transparent;" rule is inherited by the text within the tables, which causes it to disappear.

I suspect this is an evangelism issue, but I'm not sure.

When inspecting the page, I noticed an unprintable character appeared after "color: transparent;" rule.  Filed Bug 16134.

This is an evangelism issue yes.  transparent is a valid color keyword in CSS3.

Comment 4 Gavin Sherlock 2007-11-25 15:16:10 PST
Have emailed web master suggesting rule be modified or deleted.

I checked the page with Webkit r30123 and found they modified its CSS file. The page works almost the same as in Firefox except border of a table is not visible.

Page appears to work now.
