This is just an idea for "short" posts, signatures don't get bumped to the bottom of the post, they more or less float in the middle.

This happens when the posts are only a few lines, and sometimes it's hard to differentiate post and signature.

You've got a short post, and it's bottom aligned. I thought it was always this way? :)

I just checked out your test. In IE it is bottom aligned for both. In Firefox the short post is not bottom aligned so that would need to be addressed. Thanks for pointing it out.

It's a catch 22. IE dosnt conform to standards, so peoples code has started to not conform to standards so that it displays correctly in the most common browser (IE). Then when people use FF which conforms to standards sites don't look right and they blame FF.

Most of the XSS exploits are also actually a flaw in the way IE handles code. It makes exceptions for poor coding and tries to second guess what you meant to do instead of displaying the code correctly.

I was about to run a test but pramitroy already beat me to it

Firefox positioning for the sig seems to be relative to the Avatar table cell. On short posts that do not extend the lines of text beyond the length of the avatar table cell, the sig does not appear valigned=bottom, even though the source code dictates that it should be.

It's only when the post message text extends beyond the avatar table cell height that it is valigned correctly to the bottom.

I believe Firefox is actually reading this correctly. It's the TD tag that is valigned bottom. The sig itself is part of a new table row. It's the table row that should be valigned=bottom, not the TD ellement, however, I'm not sure how valid it is to assign a valign attribute to a TR ellement.

You're right meman, often I'll write one CSS file on my sites for IE, then another for everything else. the "Everything else" is based on FireFox, but it gets thrown to every non-IE browser.

The script will auto-detect the browser, and send out the appropriate CSS.

In fact, if you look at the Google cache for any page on one of my sites, it's pulling the FireFox CSS, so it looks kinda odd viewing cached pages in IE :)

IE has screwed me many times during web development. I like to use CSS a lot, but that just doesn't work correctly on IE. Everything looks perfect on FF, but on IE it looks like Hiroshima in 1945.
