Netscape style rendering error

By Murray Bourne, 12 Aug 2006

Oops - seems like Netscape v7.2's and v8's style rendering is a bit off - and the error shows up on their portal.

On the right of their homepage, the divs containing orange <h2> headings are floating left (even though the class is "clearfix") and there is a blue <h3> tag "News" that messes up:

It should look like this:
Netscape right

["Clearfix" is a hack to make sure absolutely positioned block elements that contain floated elements will break where you want them to. I use it a lot on my Interactive Mathematics site.]

Firefox, Opera 7 and 8, Netscape 7 and 8 and even IE7 all render it properly. Pretty embarrassing since it shows up on Netscape's own homepage.

So Netscape, you should fix your rendering engine!

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
