#1317 closed defect (worksforme)

Menu display inconsistent on welcome screen when viewed with IE (WindowsXP)

Reported by: briand Owned by: xris
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythweb Version: 0.19
Severity: medium Keywords: php ui mythweb
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In Internet Explorer on a Windows machine, the initial mythweb menu displays incorrectly. The shaded "information window" changes size and the "Visit MythTV" hyperlink moves around the screen as the mouse cursor is moved over the various menu items. This floating text makes some of the information in the info box unreadable, and the constant resizing of the info box is very distracting.

In Firefox on a Linux machine, the information box is of a consistent size/shape, and the "Visit MythTV" hyperlink is stationary.

See #1636 for a partial fix for this problem (actually fixes all thats mentioned here, but the main problem is to do with transparent borders).. IE renders border: 2px solid transparent; As a 2 pixel wide solid border with the current font colour, which looks strange in IE ;) The fix is non-trivial, I messed around with various spacings/paddings for ages, before Googling, and the best approach appears to be javascript orientated, maybe if I get some time I'll look into that.sorry.

Seems to work fine in IE 7.
