With respect, could you clarify what the issue is on
the page you've referenced? I'm looking at
in both IE6 and Firefox, and the major differences
I see are some spacing variations and the absent img
in the "Pattern" box.
By the way, I agree that jumping through browser-specific
hoops to design webpages is a major pain, and often resent
having to take on the pain. But it seems there's sort of
a spectrum from lowest-common-denominator-and-works-everywhere
design to maximum-bells-and-whistles-and-must-be-tweaked-for-
every-browser design. I absolutely do not know where the
line should be drawn, but really want to achieve certain
effects anyway. Hence the pain 8).
