I’d be happy to give it a shot, but last time I looked at it in IE6 I
really
didn’t see anything wrong. Can anyone tell me what the problems are?

Nathan,

I was gonna have a go at it if there were issues, but didn’t want
anyone to also be working on the same thing.

I believe Tristan did some work on this. I’ve been meaning to give it a
look, but haven’t had a chance (traveling in Canada right now).

My one hesitation about his patch is the use of transparent GIFs instead
of PNGs. This may be the way we need to go, but I was kind of hoping
someone would figure out some cool technique to get IE to make them
transparent. I know it’s possible to do on a small scale, but I think IE
has problems when you have more than 10 transparent PNGs. (Can anybody
verify this?)

If we can’t get IE to work properly with transparent PNGs. I was
thinking that we might ship both, and use transparent PNGs for Safari
and all the rest and GIFs on IE.

Any thoughts?

I’m reviewing Tristan’s fixes right now, and haven’t gotten to any
changes with the transparent gif’s. The CSS changes are solid and
looking good. Not sure where the transparent gif’s are, unless they
are in the views.

In the past I have used css specific code to use png’s on all
browsers and then switch them to gif’s for IE. I can change around
the styles to accommodate this. I don’t trust the IE transparency
hack, but I will check it out. I have only seen it work on a few
png’s per page.

I have also added a center class and modified the views appropriately
to be more standards compliant on the admin end. Right now the only
pages that are not compliant are all the forms which are missing the
“action” attribute. I may add this tomorrow. I’ll submit the changes
in the morning.

Ok, yeah I used your .diff for the CSS and this fixed most things
except the inner tabs when creating a page.
You may have seen my other email about the added png IE support I’ve
implemented.

I’ll be submitting changes today.

I’ve been working on it, I submitted my changes in trac

-replaced pngs with transparent gifs (was the easiest at the time)
-submitted a .diff for the CSS : correction of the tab alignment

I didn’t receive that much feedback though… but it worked fine here.
