Books on CSS and IE Bugs

  • # July 29, 2012 at 3:33 am

    Hello!

    Just wondering if anyone has any good book recommends for IE bugs and fixes? Chris has been awesome enough to post several IE bugs/resolutions on this site, but I know there are many other issues surrounding IE. Probably too many to go into detail here. Some of them I’ve bookmarked and have kept CSS files.

    I could of course go online to Amazon and look but thought it might be better to ask! Although you can search a few pages of books online, it doesn’t really do itself justice like going to a bookstore. But, how sad is it that bookstores are almost becoming a thing of the past?! The joys of researching books and going to a bookstore will slowly fade away and soon we’ll be doing everything online. Crazy! LOL!

    For really old (IE6) bugs, this site is a very helpful resource: http://www.positioniseverything.net/

    For IE7 and higher, I am a firm believer that if you follow standards, there won’t be as many bugs as popular opinion seems to dictate. But perhaps that’s because I’ve dealt with IE7 for so long, I’ve learned to work my way around those bugs (or, in other words, what valid code to use that works in all browsers, including IE).

    Another good list for a few common IE bugs (mostly IE6) can be found here: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/9-most-common-ie-bugs-and-how-to-fix-them/.

    Finding a book on bugs is slightly counter-productive because by the time the book gets published, new bugs or bug fixes have been found. For stuff like that, the internet is truly your best resource.

    Thanks Senff for the links!

    Jeremy, That’s a valid point; duly noted! =)
