Re: [BKARTS] Bookbinding and the Care of Books - HTML Help



Marcus,

The problem appears to be with the "< br soft >" tags found within the text.
According to the latest W3 Consortium, "soft" is not a valid attribute of
the < br > element.  IE is inserting a hard line break (ignoring the
"soft").  Mozilla is ignoring the tag completely as if it doesn't exist.  So
it looks fine for everyone in Mozilla.  In IE, it depends on your screen
resolution.  If the < br > tag lines up with where IE tries to naturally
insert a line break, such as on your computer, it looks fine.  On Alan's
(and mine) computer, he sees a double line break (one for the < br  > and
one for the natural break), with some line containing only a few words.

If you remove all the "< br soft >" tags from the text, and simply let it
flow naturally, it will look good regardless of browser or resolution.

Best,

Rich
