    Lightbulb CSS Problems and Solutions

    Ello, this thread is for posting problems with CSS. N00bs: google it first!!! Don't ask why position: absolute positions relative to the window and not the parent and such!... I would expect IE issues in here most of the time...

    If someone knows a fix for IE 7 idiotic font scaling, please let me know, thanks.

    So why does position:absolute; position reletive to the window and not to the parent?

    Why don't you give us a good example of what you mean by idiotic font scaling.

    Angry :s

    Because you didn't position the parent http://w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#propdef-position

    As for example.. go to ANY page say http://zoffix.com in IE 7 and press CTRL-+ (scale the font) why is it scaling the entire page along with images instead of only the fonts... whoever coded that is a complete idiot I wonder if somebody else types for him.

    Who said its a font scaling function? You are calling someone an idiot because you don't understand the function. Not nice!

    Thats 'view/text size'.

    That feature is page zoom and is really meant for printing, which has been troublesome in IE forever..

    No I haven't

    That is the dumbest and the most broken feature of the MS software that I have seen. How did they even come up with this?
    To "zoom in the page" they just double all the values, what is the point? It breaks 99% of the pages. I can't belive that did it like that.

    Thanks anyhow for clarifying it to me.


    P.S.: They are still idiots
