Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-483) buggy css layouts / patch for table based layout

Thorsten Berger commented on JS2-483:

Thanks for your quick reply.

Regarding the CSS layouts:
I tested the latest trunk (2.1-dev) of Jetspeed on both Netscape 7.2 and Firefox 1.0.7 and
all columns are glued to the left. This is independent of the screen resolution. IE6 has no
problems. I'll include a screenshot of both browsers.

After writing the new table based layout, there were no problems with Mozilla/Firefox any
more. It could e.g. handle two columns with 50% and 49.99% width.
Strangely, IE (6.0.2900.2180.xp_sp2_gdr) had problems with the second column of 49.99% width.
The result was a very narrow column. Specifying both columns with 50% worked correctly. Hence
the ugly workaround. This odd behaviour does IE only have with table widths, not with css

> The current css based layouts are broken on Mozilla/Firefox. Columns are glued to the
left instead of being arranged side by side. Imho css layouts are generally still very buggy.
> I switched back (again) to table based layouts and noticed some side effects regarding
font sizes in IE and some problems with the customizer. I believe some of the recent changes
(esp. with the 2.0 final release) to the portal layout have not been adapted to the tcolumns/layout.vm.
> So I wrote a new table based layout.vm and used the actual css based layout.vm as a master.
I just inserted two or three tables and removed the css width attributes.
> This now works as expected and exactly looks like the css based layout.
> I'd like to see the attached patch to be applied. Please read a comment in the patch
about a workaround to handle .99% widths.
> Regards, Thorsten
