Browser pecularities of CSS

CSS is highly regarded as the most important factor that changed website designs and optimized it as well. However, there are certain aspects of CSS that are differently interpreted in different browsers. We take a lot at the browser pecularities of CSS.

1. Nested table

The content nested inside a table does not always inherit the specifications of a FONT tag. In case the user wants the effects of the FONT tag to be applicable everywhere, it also must be individually applied to every table cell as in case of Netscape, while in case of Opera, all FONT attributes affect the nested content.

2. Table structure

In Netscape, a table is not rendered unless the entire table structure is received, while Internet Explorer tries to render the table as it receives it from the server. This can be overcome by breaking the table into smaller fragments, if possible.

3. Border Color

The BORDERCOLOR attribute affects IE and Netscape differently. In IE, both the interior and exterior border colors are affected, while in Netscape, only the outer edge of the exterior ‘box’ border of the table is affected by the tag.

4. Hyperlinks

In case of earlier Netscape versions, colored hyperlinks worked only when FONT COLOR is applied inside the hyperlink, while in some versions of IE, coloring hyperlinks does not work at all.
