View Full Version : Suggestions for changing code to work in both mozilla and IE

08-29-2007, 04:11 AM
long story short - i want to have a way to hover over pictures (thumbnails) to show a larger image in another area. The code I have works great but not in IE. But I also know its because the <span> code doesn't work in IE.

Really all I need is suggestions on something I can use. I can look up the code and figure it out on my own (its the way i learn =]) but anything will help.

heres my code I have right now. its perfect and exactly how I want it its just frustrating that IE doesn't support the code.

<style type="text/css">

table {visibility:hidden;}
div table tbody tr td a.navbar,
table tr td script {visibility:visible !important}
table tbody tr td a.navbar, table tbody tr td input, table tbody tr td font {visibility:visible;}
body table td {background-color: transparent;}
table tbody table tbody td {visibility:hidden;}
table tr td div div{display:none;}
div table tbody tr td form input, div table tbody tr td a img, div table tbody tr td div a, div table tbody tr td {visibility: visible !important;}
td.text td.text table table table,
td.text td.text table br,
td.text td.text table .orangetext15,
td.text td.text .redlink,
td.text td.text span.btext {display:none;}
td.text td.text table {background-color:transparent;}
td.text td.text table td, td.text td.text table {height:0;padding:0;border:0;}
td.text td.text table table td {padding:3;}
td.text td.text table table br {display:inline;}
.friends table {background-color:transparent;}
.hidethem {visibility:hidden; display:none;}
a span{display:none;}

a:hover span
{display: block; position: absolute; top: 70px; left: 425px; width: 220px; padding: 5px; margin: 10px; z-index: 5;
color:FFFFFF;font-family:georgia;font-size:16px;text-decoration:none; cursor: crosshair; border-width:0px}

.friends {
font-size: 10pt;
visibility:visible !important;
border-color: 000000;
a:link {
color: #FFFFFF;
text-decoration: none;
a:visited {
text-decoration: none;
color: #FFFFFF;
a:hover {
text-decoration: none;
color: #FFFFFF;
a:active {
text-decoration: none;
color: #FFFFFF;
body,td,th {
color: #FFFFFF;
a:link {
color: #FFFFFF;
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /></head>

<div class="friends"><FONT style="font-weight: bold; font-size:16pt; color: #000000; letter-spacing:-2; font-family: georgia; line-height: 16px; display:block; text-align: left;">[ CHILDREN ]</font><br>

There is a general method that can be applied.
You can do the following :-

if ("Microsoft Internet Explorer" == browser_name)
Do something
else if ("Netscape" == browser_name)
Do something...
else if("Mozilla" == browser_name)
Do something....

This code should be added within the script tag.
I hope it solves your problem.

I like that idea except im really just looking for another way to do what I want in internet explorer because I haven't found anything that will let me hover over the images and show them over larger to the right or below, etc.

any other ideas out there??
