    In a duo with my other post in javascript section : “delay a complex mouseover”, I’m here to ask why Internet Explorer can’t seem to behave correctly with positioning elements inside a div.

    Here is a website I put up online to debug the ergonomics:

    So there is a wrapper that use a jquery ScrollTo to go from one side of a map to the other. Inside, several elements are placed with pixel positioning to interact with the map (at first I used percents, but Internet Explorer just went mad and showed nothing!).

    Two things here:

    1) Internet Explorer does not seem to understand things as other browsers, and give the first item (the first side of the map) a too large width.

    2) The elements inside the wrapper which serves as placeholders for interactions are not positioned correctly. So to get a css popup, you have to look for the link!

    This behavior does not exist in other browsers, so I blame IE for not being able to understand things correctly.

    I’m asking two things here:
    Why IE behave like this ?
    Do you know a cleverer method to achieve what I’m trying to achieve ?

    Right now, I’m considering Image Map’s and images as popups. So exit beautiful codes etc…, I’ll have to deal with coordinates and images everywhere!

    **EDIT: just had to assign width and height to the map … ^^**
