I don’t normally do front end weby stuff but eventually, working for a company like MapQuest, your gonna have ta’ do something that involves Internet Explorer. So today’s post is going to sound really stoopid to those of you who’ve dealt with the issues for the majority of your career, but for me… well I’m brand new so just be quiet, act like you never heard this stuff before and let me flow a minute. I’m working with CSS professionally for the first time now and I hit a snag with Internet Explorer. I’ve always heard horror stories about IE is so non-standard, Gecko, KHTML, Opera all follow the spec more closelier, yada-yada. When you do mostly rich client server Java stuff you get numb to the complainers. What whiners! Just use a layer of abstraction and interface or something and quit complaining will ya?
