View Full Version : ie7 tab problem

Feb 19th, 2010, 05:11 PM
Hi all,

Iv created the following page http://www.kylehouston.com/new/portfolio.html

basically if you check firefox then ie7 youll know what the problem is, ie 7 wont hold all the text on 1 line which is breaking the tab, how can i get around this, I know I can add width to the float but I dont want each tab to have the same width, instead I want the tab to fill out according to the tab title length?

Any suggestions?

Also on this page http://www.kylehouston.com/new/ my 'Im available' the input box 'Message' title floats to the center of the textarea in ie7 but in ff it floats to the top of the textarea, how can I place this text at the top left also in ie7?

Thanks in advance

For http://www.kylehouston.com/new/portfolio.html have you tried: white-space:nowrap;

For http://www.kylehouston.com/new/ you could try: td {vertical-align:top;}

I also suggest you re-think your use of tables for layout.

In addition you might want to check your pages with a validator.

clear: both;
position: relative;
margin-bottom: 35px;

font-size: .85em;
background:url(images/folio_tab_r.png) no-repeat right top;

I also suggest you re-think your use of tables for layout. A big NO!
