Browser Notes

These posts and pages have been written using Mozilla Firefox, and viewed using Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.

Firefox: as this browser was used to write the posts and pages, they are likely to appear as intended when viewed in Firefox. I have noticed however that in HTML tables cell boundaries sometimes disappear when viewed, but appear correctly in Print Preview and in printed output. I assume that this behaviour is hardware dependent, and may vary with screen resolution.

Chrome: default font sizes appear to be larger in Chrome than in Firefox, and as a result table entries may wrap over two lines.

IE8: default font sizes appear to be larger in IE8 than in Firefox, and as a result table entries may wrap over two lines. In addition, coloured cell backgrounds will not appear in IE8 if the Accessibility option “Ignore colors specified on webpages” is checked. (I am not sure whether this is the IE8 default, or an option I set myself, but as I have made use of coloured cell backgrounds I am including this note here in case these cell backgrounds are not visible).

Finally, column widths specified in HTML tables seem to be ignored in all three browsers. Posts and pages were written in Firefox, full-screen at 1280 px wide. They are most likely to appear as intended when viewed in Firefox with a window 1280 px wide.
