I have two pages that have a pretty similar structure of CSS-layers, both
with "overflow" set to "auto". However, for some reason the Internet
Explorer positions the scroll bars in different places, depending on which
page you're on. Mozilla and Konqueror display both pages the same way.
Could somebody who is fluent in HTML and CSS take a look at both
http://home.arcor.de/nilsweisensee/blogcontent.html and tell me why IE
displays the scroll bars in slightly different places?
What do I need to change in uebermich.html to make the scroll bar appear
just a closely to the right border of the CSS-layer like it is the case
Thanks a lot!
Re: IE interpretation habits...
True. At the moment I don't have IE. But once when I used it
I submitted a bug (State Closed, fixed) on
I don't quite understand this. The HTML spec says:
scrolling = auto|yes|no [CI]
This attribute specifies scroll information for the
frame window. Possible values
* yes: This value tells the user agent to always
provide scrolling devices
for the frame window.
Doesn't this mean setting "yes" should force both
horizontal and vertical
scroll bars to appear in all frames?
That seems opposite to the behavior I observe, where adding
scrolling="yes" causes the horizontal scroll bar in the
frame in Internet Explorer to disappear. Is this what
happens for you?
Why would adding this attribute cause the scroll bars to
rather than force them to appear?
You use a frameset.
Experiment with scrolling = auto|yes|no ...
But I don't have IE now and I can't reproduce this
paradox behaviour now.
