This crashes IE?



  • I was just poking around in cornell's stylesheet (their website design is pretty good imo)

    http://www.cornell.edu/styles/main.css

    and I found this comment, which I found to be kind of amusing.

    [code]
    a:hover {
    color: #f00;
    border-bottom-color: #f00; /* this crashes IE 6 for some strange reason */
    }
    [/code]

    	
    a bottom border color crashes IE??  ok whatever.  Can't say I'm surprised.  I do think it's funny how well they documented it though.

    That can actually (sort of) be accomplished using this bug:

    http://lachy.id.au/dev/css/bugs/ie/disappear/

    that bug doesn't crash IE, it just makes some text dissappear.  So yeah, "if you can read this, you're not running IE"

    <FONT face=Tahoma>I can definitely read that and I'm definitely using IE...

    Oh wait...
