    This does NOT work in Safari.

    Check it out.

    Sorry for double commenting, but this is also NOT valid XHTML or valid CSS.

    Something you should STRONGLY consider.

    Angelo, there’s only 3 validation errors. All the designer has done is forgotten to close a few elements.

    As for the CSS, the errors are being caused by an inexplicit path (if I’m reading the validator right. I’m not checking the actual file).

    The warnings are only there because there’s no bg colour, sometimes it doesn’t seem necessary (but I appreciate that it is).

    They’re all minor errors.

    This site also breaks in Opera 8 on Windows. I know its not required, but it might be the same problem that is breaking Safari.

    thanks for comment

    i can’t check in safari cause i use pc

    i’ve used iCapture and appeared to be ok, and the site looks good in the last osx safari too as i’ve seen from a friends

    and in my version of opera (8.52) it works good too

    i’m interested in standards and making sites cross-browser, so if you want to send me screenshots of the problemes (and the versions of the browsers in which they happen) i’ll check for the problems

    i haven’t too much cause i’m working but i’ll correct these errors as soon as i can

    I just spent over an hour trying to get this installed and nothing is resolving! No css, no images.

    Has anyone gotten this to work? Are the css references correct? (../graphics/image.gif) This seems wrong for my path: – contains my graphics dir, css dir, plus textpattern dir – contains config.php, publish.php, etc.

    I just took a look at the instructions and they seemed pretty clear.

    You need to follow the directions exactly for things to work. That means that your css folder should be inside the “textpattern” directory and the master.css should be pasted into the admin panel.

    Also, your images folder should also be inside the “textpattern” directory.

    Reread the Install.txt because it is alot clearer than what I just explained.

    The demo page was changed.

    Isn’t this against the rules?

    It’s several weeks i do not log to the ftp/textpattern panel where the site is hosted.

    So what would be changed ? Are you sure of what you are saying ?

    You changed the css.

    The first time I checked it didn’t work in Safari (which I commented about on Feb 28). Now it does work in Safari.
