Tables aren't shown with custom colours
Date: January 14, 2009 07:23AM

If a web page contains a table that has a custom border colour, k-meleon doesn't render the colour properly, but Firefox and (especially) IE do.

Is this a bug, feature request or...?

Here is an example to test for yourself (note: the table should have a green border):

Which Firefox (which Gecko version)?
Which IE (Trident)? (IE 8 is the only standard compliant IE & not very common).

Try with Firefox 2 grinning smiley

You are using: bordercolor="#3CB371"
This atribute isn't a HTML/XHTML standard, is an atribute propietary of Microsoft.

You aren't the first in note this, read this web page.

If you like do it good, fellow the W3C standard, you must use CSS to define border color atribute. Read this web page like example of How to do it in CSS.

It is possibly an css error in the code that renders it other than solid!
Else GRE 1.8.x. used by Firefox 2 and K-Meleon has a false default.

Some Firefox 3 render the same way as my IE 8 here
(AFAIK IE 8 has standard compliant and a IE 6-7 quirks rendering mode).

BTW. That is why I asked for browser versions smiling smiley


On Your test page K-Meleon is using a border-style or outline-style (can also be coded via border: , outline: )

To force other style use css -> border-style: solid; or border: solid; this & #3CB371 forces solid green. I do not know whether border: inset is a property that is inherited from previous elements. But the error can be excluded via coding.

Your observed 3d effect is AFAIK created by
border-style: inset;
Make sure You do not have inset as default or as error in Your own code.
Solid is AFAIK default.

The serries that make such 3D effects is.
groove = 3D-Effekt.
ridge = 3D-Effekt.
inset = 3D-Effekt.
outset = 3D-Effekt.

#3CB371 = one of the three or so valid systems and means green.
Thunderbird uses the same format in its color picker and mails.
A color picker from selfhtml.org which is an online book to teach valide html. Insert #3CB371 and view.

p.s. Now some advertisement tongue sticking out smiley

The lake applet site of sterntaler has css coded borders around the applets grinning smiley

I also like the tunes.

& thx for telling me
- I did not know that the applets are still visited by someone
- I do not have a counter.

2 Starters for test pages for applets for an update at my site:

1liste.html or the same applets but easier to load on slim PC resources 2liste.html
No music and the applets are created as popups. Just copy/paste and replace index.html...

I am more interested to go to forum at the moment, so I flooded it with my advertsgrinning smiley

music

Go page choose tune, open new tab/window in fore or background, go test page 1liste.html.

I like: Lake, Autumn mist and Rainy season best. The whole site has a maximum size allowance of 10 MB. It is 10 MB the rest of test pages will have to go to free space.
