Left MarginsOctober 21, 2007 Tim Worstallblogs16 CommentsCan anyone tell me, are we still having problems with the left margins in IE 6? previousThe Immortal MemorynextAbolishing Prescription Charges 16 thoughts on “Left Margins” Philip Thomas October 21, 2007 at 6:45 pm Looked fine when I gave it a check. It was previously most/only visible with the longer posts or those with many comments. Checking a few of those showed no problems. devilskitchen October 21, 2007 at 6:48 pm Hooray! Could people carry on commenting here to let me know that it’s cleared up for sure. Cheers. DK Mark Wadsworth October 21, 2007 at 7:25 pm It seems fine when I use Her Indoors’ computer, but it does it at work, I’ll have to check tomorrow from work. My own computer is fucked anyway. Tim Newman October 21, 2007 at 9:38 pm I’m having a rather large problem with the right sidebar: it doesn’t seem to be displaying the link to my blog properly. 🙂 Martin October 21, 2007 at 8:41 pm are we still having problems with the left margins in IE 6? – apparently not. FK October 21, 2007 at 10:26 pm Sunday afternoon here in Texas. The stars at night are big and bright … and the left margin is still pinching on my IE 6.0 – but it doesn’t start until the post “Err, Excuse me …’ and then gets progressively worse as you go down the old posts. devilskitchen October 22, 2007 at 12:18 am FK, damn you eyes and your eye ee. 😉 I shall look upon it further. Sigh. Tim, Blogroll to be sorted shortly… DK dearieme October 22, 2007 at 1:04 am For me it starts at “Yup, that is pretty much it. “ Ian Bennett October 22, 2007 at 8:04 am It’s still bad for me, towards the bottom of the main page. When I mouse over the “n comments” link, the “Tags:” fragment reformats itself more to the right, so that it lines up with the over-line. The last two lines on the last para of most posts are indented by 1 space. On my other machine (same spec) the problem isn’t apparent, which is odd. Also, on this machine the vertical bars to the left of the in-post quotes don’t appear. (IE 6.0, XP Pro) JuliaM October 22, 2007 at 8:11 am Still bad for me too… The Englishman October 22, 2007 at 8:32 am Who cares that the left can’t be read properly, squeeze the bastards as hard as you can, they haven’t got anything worthwhile to say anyway… Forester October 22, 2007 at 10:02 am Could it be the “google_ad_width = 160” Shouldn’t you use some run-time browser calculated ‘page width/3’ or somesuch. Mark Wadsworth October 22, 2007 at 10:46 am It’s still chopping them off when I log on at work, I am afraid to say. datacharmer October 22, 2007 at 11:07 am Same here – problem most definitely not fixed. devilskitchen October 22, 2007 at 5:29 pm The content div is a fixed width: the text should not be shifting outwith the div (as it is). This is insane. DK devilskitchen October 22, 2007 at 6:28 pm “Could it be the “google_ad_width = 160″ Shouldn’t you use some run-time browser calculated ‘page width/3′ or somesuch.” Er… No. The sidebar is 210px, the Google Ads are 160px: plenty of space. Besides, this problem was happening before the Google Ads were put in place. DK Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
