Hello

I am building a site for a client who has ie5.2. I have tested the site on safari and ie5.2.3 and it is fine. He tells me there is a problem with the layout, but I cannot find a version of ie5.2 to test it on. I would be extremely grateful if somebody could point me in the direction of a download, or if any body has it

I know this isn't the most helpful answer you will probably get but at this stage - he really (or she!) needs to consider ditching Internet Explorer 5 and getting a much more standards compliant browser; is there a particular reason they are still using 5.2?

Trying to be more helpful -- what is it that is laid out wrong; I may have some experience in working around some of IE 5 for Mac's quirks...

I totally agree, its already been suggested that he upgrade.

The site is fixed width and all the widths are defined in the style sheet. I have tested this in firefox, opera, netscape, ie on pc and safari and ie5.2.3 on mac and all are fine.

The top 2 rows of the table are split into 2 <td>'s. the banner is split at the O & M in 'COMMUNICATIONS'. I assume there is something wrong with the width's on ie5.2 as he says he sees a vertical gap in the pages at the join between the two banner graphics.

Yeah, but you can run most apps written for os/9 using OS X's classic environment.
It's basically a compatibility layer to ensure support for older apps.
It might be preinstalled on your system - otherwise you can find it on the system discs that came with your mac.

Actually that's a really easy fix. Don't have space in your td tags.. so for example:

Code:
<td>
    <img />
</td>
Do this instead:

Code:
<td><img /></td>
For some reason IE has a problem with white space and actually shows it, instead of what other browsers do and they ignore it.. since most of us programmers like to indent our code

thanks alot, i have taken out the whitespace in the <td>'s, aparently when the client tested it on his mac at home with the same version of explorer it was ok, but still not in is office, so i dont know whats going on there.

If anyone can see it on ie5.2 (or 5.2.2) could you let me know if it has a vertical gap down the middle

I have a couple of older Macs here with IE 5.2. Will fire one up in a while and check it for you and post what happens in this reply later.

Ok, booted up my G4 Tower in OS 9.2.2 and downloaded IE 5.1 Mac. Gap is there. Here is a Screenshot to show you what I see here.

I just re-read your message. I think you wanted IE under OSX. Will go find that and get back to you. But the gap is there in IE for OS9.

Ok Did it over again with IE 5.2 in OSX Tiger. The Same gap in the title.

Here is the screenshot.

The Break is in the title everywhere there is text below it. All pages do it except the first one and there is no text below that on that Enter page. I am looking at the HTML and will get back to you if I find a fix that works on IE 5.2 without hurting it in other more modern browsers.

It seems to be something where the two banners meet. Trying to see what is up. It works 100% on every other browser I have tried so far.
