Mozilla Now Supports All CSS1 Properties!

Thursday April 29th, 1999

David Baron, long on the scene as a champion of a proper CSS1 implementation and one of the most prolific bug-report contributors at Bugzilla has great news on CSS1 in Mozilla (and he'd be the one to know).

"The new layout engine now supports all CSS1 properties. Troy Chevalier implemented the last property, background-attachment, earlier this week. Some properties are still buggy, and one selector (the visited pseudo-class) isn't yet implemented. However, this is probably the most complete implementation of CSS1 so far, and the bug list is consistently getting shorter."

What about the box model? I have loads of trouble convincing colleagues that mozilla will kick butt when it doesn't display box models that IE5 has no trouble with. Also, when will the LINK REL importing of stylesheets work (I'm using m4)?

Mozilla's box model is probably correct, and IE's rendering is incorrect. Could you give some examples?

Again, with the importing, Mozilla is almost definitely correct. Linked stylesheets have worked reliably since last September. If they don't work for you, then something is wrong with what you are doing - you're probably relying on some IE bug. See: <http://www.bath.ac.uk/~py8ieh/internet/importtest/>
