All, This isn't strictly a problem or issue with RoR but I wondered if someone might have some insight. I have a DIV on a page which I am using to "preview" the contents of a URL provided by the user. Basically, when the user clicks on a link, I do an AJAX call to an action which uses Net::HTTP to request the URL in question and then update the DIVs innerHTML attribute (standard AJAX-101 stuff). Depending on the page, it appears that if the page is controlled by a stylesheet, then that stylesheet can cause changes in the width of the content area. (As a side note, it appears that for the same page, IE can't handle the embedded stylesheet and Firefox can). Am I stuck with this behavior because of the cascade, or is there a way that I can at least force the sizing of my content area to be the same? I actually don't mind most of the stylesheet since the preview looks like it should look, but I don't want my content well to be distorted. Any help would be appreciated. Wes

You could make your div have the owerflow: hidden; attribute to hide what goes over your div size. Other thing that might be even cooler is to develop something to take a screenshot of the page in question much like they do in ma.gnolia.com. Just bigger.

Neither IE nor Opera would pick up the embedded stylesheet for me. I had generated a DIV from an AJAX call with an embedded <style>..</style> tag. I'm certain that I had read about this before, but I couldn't find a source to corroborate this behavior. In the end, I ended, as part of the RJS return, inserting a CSS link into the head of the document via DOM.
