 (users usually do Right Click - convert page to PDF) - they need to send
 those pages for client approval in the PDF format.   The pages in PDF
 display very poorly, not all CSS images are displayed, CSS formatting is
 completely off...

 Does anybody have any idea, what's the best approach to tame the CSS 
pages
 and convert them to PDF?

Re: [WSG] Help - Mega dropdown menu and SharePoint 2007

2009-04-01 Thread Matijs
Hello Miranda,
Having worked on several Sharepoint 2007 based internet facing websites
myself, the one thing I've learned is that the biggest challenge is to get
Sharepoint to output valid non–table–based HTML. All the rest should be
quite easily solved with CSS. It really depends on how comfortable your
developers are with working with Sharepoint. In my experience there are a
lot of back-end developers doing front-end work that they're not qualified
to do which makes them resort to table based layouts c.

Good luck!

  Hi all,

 Has anyone had any experiencing trying to implement the ‘mega dropdown
 menu’ (see article below) in a SharePoint site?

 I'm going to attempt to do it, but thought anyone who has already been
 through this might have some tips / advice for me.

 Alertbox: Mega Drop-Down Navigation Menus Work Well


 *http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html*http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

 Summary:

 Big, two-dimensional drop-down panels group navigation options to eliminate
 scrolling and use typography, icons, and tooltips to explain the user's
 choices.

 Cheers

[WSG] Melbourne meetings

2009-04-01 Thread Cameron McCormack
Hi, I’m new here.  I see on
http://webstandardsgroup.org/meetings/melbourne.cfm that the last
Melbourne WSG meeting was in November 2008.  Is that accurate?  Are
Melbourne WSG meetings not being held at the moment?

Thanks,

Cameron

Strange that you saw only that one.

We definitely still have them bi-monthly at Loop bar just off Bourke Street,
the last one was in Feb with Kevin Yank.

There is another in April and more to come.

thanks for the heads up and keeping an eye out for them.

Cool.  Announcements of those are sent to the announcement mailing list
that I was subscribed to, I guess?

[WSG] IE7 CSS fix

2009-04-01 Thread Prashant
Hi,

I need to implement a padding-left:65px in IE7. I have following -

#foo .bar {
  padding-left:60px;
}

I have tried adding following 3 options one at a time immediately after the
one above and in all the cases IE7 picks padding-left:60px;

*+html #foo .bar {
  padding-left:65px;
}

*:first-child+html #foo .bar {
  padding-left:65px;
}

*+html #foo .bar {
  padding-left:65px !important;
}

Any suggestions how do I fix this issue? Help appreciated.

Regards,
Prashant

Which mode is IE7 in for your document?

Hacks like...
*:first-child+html #foo .bar {...}
...will only work in IE7 Strict Mode. If it doesn't work in Strict
Mode, then something is overruling it.
