Spellbook and Character stats

Tested with 1.7.2, but it also applies to 1.7.1, therefore posted outside the Beta forum.

In the spellbook, the text is displayed on top of the icons:

It seems this can be fixed by applying the following changes to "style.css":
Code: Select all
    Line ~2350: Remove line "position:absolute"
    Line 2360: Insert line "margin-left:4px"

Like that, it shows exactly the same in Opera, Firefox, IE6 and IE7.

In the character stats window, the numbers are shifted up:

I have yet been unable to solve this entirely. The following change to "style.css" makes it work perfectly in Opera:
Code: Select all
    Line 1542: Remove line "margin-top:-15px"

But the text is then shifted down in IE. That line obviously was there for a reason ;)

It is also possible to 'comment' that line (by preceding the line with double dash "--"), so Opera will indeed skip it, but IE doesn't understand that and will use the margin-top anyway (which is intended).
Code: Select all
    Line 1542: Comment it with double dash: "-- margin-top:-15px"

However, then Firefox spoils it by displaying it completely wrong.

I have no idea what browser is doing it 'right', but this shift of -15px feels hackish to me anyway ;)

Yes, it is very hackish

I'll install Opera and see what I can do

I'm not sure about the spellbook one, but I suspect the negative top margin for the character pane are indeed there to make it show correctly in IE.

I think there's a reason that, when sniffing in the code of big sites, you often encounter a special CSS file that is only loaded in IE.
