holy floats, batman!

IEfilter: I'm sick of it. The most random bugs appear in IE when designing standards compliant pages. Like on this page I'm working on for a friend. On tabs two and three of the page, there are photos in the top right corner. These images show up in firefox just fine, but in IE, they're invisible. HELP! [more inside]

IE bug with truncation of page

I stumbled across an Internet Explorer display problem today that I just can't figure out. It feels CSS-related, and it feels float-related, but despite knowing all about the Holly Hack and all about how to deal with most every float-related IE bug I've seen prior to today, this one has me totally stumped. Can someone help? [more inside]

Is there a way to tint an entire web page a certain colour?

Is there a way to tint an entire web page a certain colour? As in, not actually altering the images and other content to be tinted that colour, just for the content to look that way when viewed on that page. It sounds to me like something that could be done with CSS but I'm really not sure. Google's results aren't turning up quite what I'm looking for, although maybe I just suck at finding the right words for this query.

Help Me Learn CSS Zen Garden Techniques -- and How to Do CSS/XHTML Mock-Up?

CSSFilter: I'm a long-time Web wonk looking to become a CSS maven - my next gig is the development and implementation of a completely modern, table-less design for a fairly big company.

What learning resources out there (on the Web, in print, or otherwise) are the best for someone looking to master the techniques espoused by places like the CSS Zen Garden? What new tools should I consider using? One thing I'm having trouble with in particular: how does the designer mock up a fully CSS/XHTML design? It seems more counterintuitive than the old process of design -> cut-up into table-based layout.

Sort del.icio.us links by popularity?

Is there a way to sort del.icio.us links by order of overall popularity? For example, I know if I go to del.icio.us/popular/css/ it will show me recently popular links with the css tag, but what I'd really like is to sort all the css links in descending order of number of people linking to the link. Is this possible?
I googled with variations of "sort|order popular del.icio.us links" but did not come up with anything remotely like what I was going for.

DVD copy protection

DVD Copy Protection Question: I'm trying to figure out what the best program is to scan a dvd for copy protection. Before anyone goes thinking I'm illegally doing something: I have a GPS dvd "Map for the Eclipse Navigation System" that you keep in the car in order to help the device. The problem is that pulling the dvd in and out of the system is causing it to scratch. So I'd like to have a copy of it for the car (it'd be useless for anyone else anyways). The problem is that it didn't work as a copy the first time, so I'm thinking there's some sort of protection. I know there are cd scan programs which do the job for CDs (ClonyXXL and such), but is there such for DVDs?

Image centering with CSS?

Following some googling, I've found a few sites that claim you can't use CSS to centre an image vertically within a div. Does this mean that I can't get the images on this page to float in the centre of their respective grey box? At the moment, they only seem to be postioned in the middle at the top of the box and even the middle bit is only because there is a text-align:center in there. (I don't mind If I have to lose the title of the image to get this to work)

How do you ensure consistent yet accesible font sizes across platforms using CSS?

How do you ensure consistent yet accesible font sizes across platforms using CSS?
I have a site where I set the SIZE attribute of the BODY tag to 80%, and then set all the other font sizes using ems, which in theory should give me consistent fonts while allowing people to change the font size (which is why I don't just use pixels for the whole thing).
Unfortunately, in IE 5, this results in way too large fonts.
What's your method?

Cascading CSS

CSS.

I have to redesign a horribly convoluted frames based site with no frames. This is a Good Thing. One problem - there's a small block that has to use (for reasons I have no control over) it's own stylesheet, completely independant of the main CSS (that is, the content will be independant - the block itself has to be sized and placed using the site CSS...). And it has to be inside a larger block level element that will take the site CSS. Is there a way to stop the CSS cascading, or reset every property of the block, or do I have to manually reset each inheritable property separately?

how do I build web pages people can annotate

I want to create a website which visitors can "annotate" with something more than a simple commenting system. Basically, I'm looking for Flickr's photo annotation capabilities, but for html documents instead of jpegs.

Internet Explorer vs. CSS

What's your preferred method for dealing with IE's less-than-stellar CSS box-model interpretation (specifically, where it adds padding to DIVs). Currently, I am using 2 divs, the outside one has the "width" attribute set, the inner one the padding. Works, but is kind of clunky.

WebDesign: CSS and FireFox

So I have this home page. It looks pretty good (which is to say, it looks like I intended) in Safari, and passable in Internet Explorer. But in FireFox the CSS completely dissapears for some reason, so everything just comes up in a big unstyled pile. So in trying to find out why this is, which I have not done, I came to wonder: Is there a place on the web that has information about the differnces between browsers and how they render various bits of HTML, CSS and so on?

DHTML/CSS

DHTML/CSS Wizards: I am looking for free source code to create a simple two-tiered menu. When you hover above a link in a horizontal list of links, each link will display the sublinks in another horizontal bar underneath the first list of links. An example can be seen at macromedia.com.

Firefox customization

Firefox question. Unmodified, just-installed firefox opens a new tab behind the current tab, instead of on top as Mozilla does; and the right-click popup menu for tabs does not have "close this tab" first in the list, as in Mozilla. Are these two behaviors customizable? I know I'm being lazy but these two misfeatures are deal-killers for me. If you knowledgeable firefox users tell me they're fixable in userChrome.css or users.js or whatever I promise I'll rtfm-rtfm-rtfm and become as rabid a firefox zealot as you might desire. But if they're not changeable then it's all wasted effort and I'll stay with Mozilla (or whatever they're calling it this week.) Thanks!

Javascript/CSS/IE

I'm having a javascript/CSS/IE problem. I'm working on a website that has a line of buttons at the top for navigation, and when you mouseover the button, a menu drops down giving you sub-options. This is controlled pretty simply with javascript changing the "visibility" attribute in the stylesheet for the menu. A problem arises in IE, however, when there are form elements on the page. If the dynamic drop-down menu overlaps a form element, that form element disappears. (Specifically, this is happening with a menu) You have to reload the page to get it back. Anyone know why this might be happening, or how to fix it? Works fine in NS7, Firefox, Mozilla, etc..... [more inside]

Software to debug HTML

It would be nice if there was some favelet, firefox extension, or web-based app that would 1) scrape an html page for all the spans and ids on the page 2) compare this list to the stylesheet and 3) point out the elements that aren't in use any longer.

I haven't found anything like this, and I'm wondering if anyone else has.
