    Just a quick comment. I’d sent an email to Nate on this but your CSS2 has a few bugs in it. It works great with IE5, but with true compliant browsers such as Mozilla or Firebird it will not display properly. This also affects Safari which is the brower nearly all Mac users use. IE5 has some notorious bugs displaying panes properly and I think you’ve got caught with one of them. (Or rather are making use of a bug in IE5 which doesn’t work with CSS2 compliant browsers)

    Great weblog! I’ve been looking for an interesting LDS blog to read for a while now. Looks like I found it.

    This is an FYI to Clark and others: we are working on the Mozilla/Apple problem. If anyone out there has experience installing MT, we would appreciate some advice on how to ensure that every browser can read it. Matt fixed some problems we were having with the site on IE browsers, but the other problems have proven more difficult to tackle.

    Gordon, I had a chance to look at your css today and I think the problem is in the #content block. You have the position:fixed tag and I believe this is what is keeping scrolling from taking place correctly.

    I think you want to use the position: absolute tags. For instance here are what I use to separate out my two boxes.

    #left {
    position: absolute;
    left: 0px;
    right: 220px;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 10px;
    border: 1px solid #333333;
    background: #fff;

    #right {
    position: absolute;
    right: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
    border: 1px solid #333333;
    background: F0FFFF;
    width: 220px;

    I haven’t had time to finish these so they are works in progress and aren’t on my main page yet. (Hopefully this weekend) You can see them at and

    (I’ve obviously not got to the font styles yet)

    BTW – I just tested it and the site doesn’t render properly in IE5 for the Mac. So this is a subtle “bug” in just IE5 for XP as all other browsers render it the same way. (I’ve tried 5 different browsers)
