Everything looks pretty decent in Firefox, except I couldn’t seem to get the autoheight set to false…but that’s another issue. The bigger problem is that when I fire up IE the sliding animation for showing/hiding the different items becomes totally sucktastic. It’s all jumpy and weird…pretty much unusable. I’ve tried disabling the stylesheet that’s specific to the accordion, but that doesn’t help the problem at all.
I’m wondering if it’s because our site triggers quirks mode by default…? I know for a fact that it does, but I don’t even know if there’s a way around that. For one thing I haven’t been able to figure out where the doctype for the pages is even served up from (hooray for .net). But if I did manage change the doctype, wouldn’t that screw things up if the code wasn’t valid? Not sure exaclty how that all works.
In the end the whole site is big, bloated, and and full of nasty old tables and stuff created with a crappy content editor, probably chock full very non-standard, non-validating, nightmarish code. :o I didn’t build it, and can’t tear it down and start from scratch, but a big part of my job is to figure out how to make it look prettier…at least I have some job security there! :roll:
Anyway, just checking to see if there are any ideas why good old IE has to screw this one up, too, and if there is any way around it in my case. Thanks for reading this far!
