Comment Form Problem Fixed (I Hope)

Filed under: Random Stuff — Bob Gifford @ 10:21 pm

Get Firefox!Many of you have complained about the spill-over to the right on the comment form. It only happens with Internet Explorer, and since I use Mozilla Firefox (a much better and safer browser, by the way), I was unaware of the problem for quite awhile. When I learned of the issue, I asked for help, and was told it was caused by Microsoft’s lack of compliance with style sheet standards and was not a problem with my style sheet and html. At this point, I felt vindicated, and waited for Microsoft to come around to properly supporting global standards.

Alas, it has not happened, and I have heard your continued cries of outrage and anguish. So, I’ve tweaked the comments form in the style sheet, and it looks to me like it should be working for IE as well as the rest of us.

Let me know if this does in fact solve the problem for you, and if you find any other glitches I’ve overlooked. And thanks for your patience as I struggle learning to use the Internets.


  1. Now, this comment form is failing to collapse properly in Firefox when I zoom in to enlarge the text (which I often do). That is, it ends up underneath the right-hand column, so I can’t seen what I’m typing at the ends of lines.

  2. Yep, I see what you mean. I fixed one problem only to cause another. Back to the drawing board!

  3. TBH, thinking about it, I’m not sure whether this problem is new – try reverting to the old style and test. That’ll help you narrow down any problems 🙂
