Description of problem:
I administer a web site. I have a page that displays correctly on ms
internet explorer, both new and older netscapes ms/linux/solaris, mozilla
browser. But Konqueror displays some text segments running down the side
of the page.
The page is html only. I have an embedded style sheet with a set of Span
specs for IE and Layer specs for netscape and relatives. I then overlap
these in the body of the document. This normally works such that IE reads
the span tags and the others read the Layer tags and all is well. Even
in the Konqueror case, only some of the Layer tags seem to be misread.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Konqueror Browser
2.go to URL listed above
Actual Results: The page displayed incorrectly. This would not
necessarily be a Konqueror bug, but since the page displays correctly in
other browsers I am familar with, either there is a bug, or the browser
functions differently than the others in a manner that I am not familiar
Expected Results: Expect to see defined blocks of text with headers and
photos place neatly around them. Go to the same url using the Netscape or
Mozilla browser to see the page displayed correctly.
If you believe that this browser is "working as intended" please give me
an explanation so I know what I need to fix in my html. I am willing to
accept that I don't know all possible variants of browser interpretation,
but I also think that Konqueror would be enhanced by backward compatiblity
at least with Netscape and Mozilla.
I'm not overly familiar with span and layer tags; but it does look like
konqueror assumes they're 0 pixels wide by default.
I've passed this on to the base developers, awaiting their feedback.
