Vista IE CSS & Other Support





novisdesign
Hello,
I use a Mac and use Safari for browsing. I also make web sites, graphics, ect. I would like to know if the new IE will support CSS 2/3, XHTML, and PNG graphics.

Thanks

I tested, it doesn't support CSS much better, and still doesn't support XHTML.
Didn't try PNG graphics.

Nope, it still doesn't support XHTML

It does support PNG transparency (finally)

As for CSS, some CSS1/2.1 features were added/fixed:
- overflow works properly.
- :hover on all elements (not just <a>)
- max-height/width, min-height/width
- position: fixed
- background-attachment: fixed
- A:first-child selector
- A > B selector
- A + B selector
- A[attr] selector
- A[attr=value] selector
- A[attr|=value] selector
- A[attr~=value] selector

Most known layout bugs have been fixed.

XML prolog no longer sends IE into quirksmode, but that's no real use when XHTML still isn't supported...

And it now supports XmlHttpRequest without going through ActiveX creation (i.e., the same method of creation as other browsers).

That's about it for developers. And in any event, we'll still need to wait some years (or more) before IE6 is gone, since IE7 isn't released for most versions of Windows - only Windows XP SP2 and newer.

Cool thank you!
Didn't know that!

I should probably mention that I would be far from surprised if there are still bugs with those new additions - only tested them in a very basic way. I've heard people mention problems with position: fixed in some cases, for example.

It's beta, n00b.

The current beta 2 is also a "layout complete" beta, which is meant to imply that no more render engine features will be added - or changed. This does mean that CSS and PNG support are finalized. And don't expect them to suddenly decide to implement XHTML support either. It's not just a matter of accepting a mime-type.

Was the "n00b" really necessary? Smile
