Internet Explorer 6 sucks
There had been a slight issue with Hoboken411 for readers still using IE6 as their browser. I used to have a copy of that running on one of my other PC’s, but Windows automatically upgraded it to the new IE7. So I had no way to beta test the site’s cross-browser compatibility issues.
Thanks Timber (and Red) for pointing it out. The technical issue is with the way some of the headlines are rendered in Flash to give it a cleaner look, rather than just text. But IE6 made the line 6 pixels too wide, thus forcing the right sidebar to the bottom. It’s a very finicky thing I have to be careful about. The problem is now rectified. Sorry about that!
It works fine with Firefox and the new IE7. I know changing habits is hard, but some of you may consider upgrading!
And for those still using IE6, please continue letting me know if there are problems viewing it.
EDIT: I found a way to have both IE6 and IE7 on the same machine. See this link if you’re interested: http://webdesign.about.com/od/internetexplorer/ig/IE-6-and-7-on-the-Same-Machine/index.01.htm
