View Full Version : Anylink height discrepencies between browsers

04-03-2005, 01:00 AM

Love the script!
I've been tweaking with the code and I noticed that
when I change the 'line-height' function it reacts
well in Firefox but I found no change in IE.

border:1px solid black;
font:normal 15px Arial;
line-height: 20px;

Any comments?

Thanks for your time...

I've noticed in working extensively with line-height, cross browser, to render text based graphics that Mozilla (NS7.2 & FF1.x.x) like specific, ie: pixel defined line-heights and IE seems to prefer percentages. Also, that Mozilla and IE do not agree on what a line-height value is. Perhaps with a strict !DOCTYPE declaration things would be more uniform. I often resorted to the !important hack, something like:


Mozilla will take the first fixed value and IE the second relative one which on a 15px sized font should be roughly equivalent. However, the really strange thing I've noticed is that IE will often do the unexpected and that adjusting the Line-height percentage by eye is still usually necessary.
