CSS Copyright and Credit

IE versus Firefox
Despite the fact that the majority of DA members use Firefox as their primary browser, it is a sad fact that amongst Internet users at large, and especially amongst large corporations (believe me, I have done my research on this), IE remains the dominant browser, with FF as a close second. So, given that fact, it is worth remembering that as shiny and lovely as your lay-outs look in FF, many that are only coded in FF and not checked in IE, will not render very well (or even at all in some cases) in IE. Now, you may not think that this matters, but it does. Many potential employers from outside of the DA community come here to look for talent. The look and content of your journal can be as important as your art, as that is what represents you. So, when coding your new journal, remember to check it in IE as well as Firefox, and even Opera if you are prepared to be thorough.

Fantastic as always.
I'm formerly ~Livana-Deathrose and moved account in the new year. Though my old account still has all my CSS's on and I'm still making CSS now on this account. :) Also got some tuts, one on scroll boxes and another on headers which people keep askin' me about. :giggle:
This will be very helpful for our if we can ever understand CSS...

Your point about "IE versus Firefox" is very relevant. The v5 of the gallery CSS is fantastic but of course made for Firefox, and after reading this, I went to check it in IE and it still works.. sort of. The cooler features are missing and the images glitch a bit but it's still okay.
Just a little research I did.
Thanks a lot!!
Fantabulous! :thanks: This could be very helpful!

Excellent...good to know that it's not just a hit of the moment and that people are using it as a resource. :D
