Whether you link to an external stylesheet, embed a style block or
declare the styles in-line is a matter for author management of the
CSS property declarations. The use of includes or scripting the
actual link, block or inline styling in the document does not matter a
Importantly, if the styling is included, the interpretation is still
done by the client browser. Whether includes or in-document coding
are used, the restrictions and bugs and failure to parse, where
invalid markup or styling is involved, still apply.
What I do notice, however, with some Nav4x browsers, that escaping the
quotes on class names in printf() causes these browsers to sometimes
escape the whole class declaration.
<td class=\'id\' align=\'right\'>%s</td>
', $myrow['id'], $myrow['lname'], $myrow['fname'],$myrow['logon'],
The solution for some documents is to write as such
<td class=id align=right>%s</td>
How this will affect xml documents I am not sure
Also with tables, if the data is being extracted from a database, as
above, and the data in a particular field row is null, the td cell
styling background will collapse with Nav4x browsers. This might be
solved by a conditional statement inserting some content where the
database row/field content is null, or constructing the database table
with pseudo content, such as as the default for fields likely
to have null content.
Sorry, but my experience is that oranges are oranges and apples and
apples are apples. Nice thought! but I do not think you can get out
of browser non-compliance by using PHP.
