Home Forums CSS TOP PADDING: Diffenrences in Safari/Chrome & Firefox/Opera Re: TOP PADDING: Diffenrences in Safari/Chrome & Firefox/Opera


@Qbit – I would expect any client to demand perfection, if they don’t their business surely won’t last very long!

I have very specific deliverables in my contract that say pixel perfection will not be achieved across all browsers. Browser rendering of font, for example, is completely out of every single developers control. Do I strive to be as close as possible? For sure! I want to be proud of my work. But if I’m going to use progressive techniques (say, CSS3), I simply explain to the client that it might not look the exact same in earlier versions of IE.

In my experience, as long as I explain the technical limitations of aged browsers, clients seem to be willing to agree.
