CSS Naked Day

Yesterday if you happened to visit this site you would have noticed all the styles were turned off. This was done to celebrate the third annual CSS Naked Day.

The idea behind this event is to promote Web Standards. Plain and simple. This includes proper use of (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words…

It only happens once a year in April, so if you didn’t participate this year, mark your calendars for next year and show your support for web standards.

Gaps Under Images in IE6

In IE6 and below, images within a div will have a gap or space below them. This is caused by the fact that images are not block elements; they’re inline. The pixels at the bottom are the space below the baseline where text descenders would go (tails on letters like g, j, p, q and y).

The Fix:
Using CSS, set display:block; on the img.

This is not a problem in IE7.

Suckerfish Dropdown Menu “Sticks” in IE7

The Problem:
When using the Suckerfish Dropdown Menu in IE7 the dropdown menu often “sticks” and will not go up when you mouse off the menu.

The Fix:
Just add the following code to your CSS:

#menu li:hover, #menu li.hover { position: static; }

Thanks to Built From Source for the fix.
