It doesn't work well in Safari indeed. I can really only read it cause I put it on my friends list, so the layout is normal.
*ponders* To the mods: Did you do the layout in CSS? And if so, did you use any IE specific tags? IE doesn't like certain things in CSS, so I know designing for Explorer I had to throw in IE specifics, and as such I left out the regular things because it was only for viewing in IE.

How does it not work? Bothering the mods doesn't do any good, since they didn't make the layout. ^^;; Stupidities in it are my fault, I've gotta admit.
I don't have Safari - I tested it on Firefox, IE, and AOL with a sufficient level of compatability for each, so I was wondering what looks wrong in Safari, since I've never used it, and I've never heard anyone tell me what it allows and doesn't.

There's CSS in it - if you want to see the coding, it's a public style under my account - http://www.livejournal.com/styles/browse/styleinfo.bml?styleid=451761 is the style browser view of it.

Oh, sorry, the way the layout appears in Safari, you can't actually see the little blurb about how you did the layout. XD I just checked in IE.
Anyway, basicly, what it does. Rather than aligning the messages left and the rules/etc right, it aligns everything right. When you get to about the 3rd rule, the two start overlapping.
I didn't look through the entire CSS code, so I'm not quite sure why it does this. It's actually kind of bizarre, since Safari is the purest implementation of CSS avaliable.

Probably a problem with the div layers, then. I'll have to look into getting Safari to test layouts with, I suppose. ^^;; Not everything handles div layers well it seems, or at least in the same manner as IE or Mozilla. =/

(I personally think we need a communistic system with browsers. Only one browser - the people's browser! xDDD That way nothing will work, but it'll all be one browser that it won't work on.)

*grins* There we go! XD
I've done div layers that work just fine in Safari and IE, but that probably is it, in any case.

I find Rage!Roy more amusing then I have any right to. May want to touch it up a bit along the edges, and do a grammer/spelling check. ^_^ Otherwise, vera fun.

Re: ^_^
I'll pass on the message to the author, thanks! :)
