If you look at my recently read page, you’ll now see what I’m in the middle of. Which took about 5 minutes to implement.
My internet explorer problems are an IE bug: the fifth item in the list of rules in the CSS spec on float positioning says that “The outer top of a floating box may not be higher than the outer top of any block or floated box generated by an element earlier in the source document.” Which IE is violating.
I’m tentatively leaning towards giving up on using a definition list, replacing it with an unordered list that I tell the browser not to style with bullet points, and enclosing the fields in a span which I style with boldface. We’ll see. I should really get my tests in shape to not require huge amount of typing if I do HTML changes like that. (Well, a fair amount of typing, aided by Emacs keyboard macros.)
