Do you still use MIN/MAX-WIDTH and MIN/MAX-HEIGHT

Postby nenzee » Fri May 15, 2009 1:03 am

Title is wrong , correct one should be :

I am building a liquid layout with percentage and wonder if I have to use MIN/MAX-WIDTH and MIN/MAX-HEIGHT , knowing that IE 6 and earlier versions do not support it.
Do you use them ?
Is there any rule available to avoid the bug ?

I avoid fluid widths in general and go with fixed width. For awhile I was sticking with fixed width 800, but monitors and screen res settings have grown so I go fixed width 950 in most cases. Very rarely do I make anything bigger than that just because I never want anyone to have to scroll across and there are still some people that use small screen res settings.

They have no idea what browser standards are or that IE is in fact a big piecee of junk that ought to be burned… they only know that the big E on their desktop is how they connect to the Internet. So as long as we have those people around we have to put up with the bugs of the evil empire.
