These pages use certain CSS definitions that are unsupported by older browsers.

Again, the color of the border is based on the element's valuefor color, which in this circumstance is likely tobe blue (although we can't show that in print). This is due tothe fact that the image is contained with a hyperlink, and theforeground color of hyperlinks is usually blue. Ifwe so desired, we could change that color to besilver, like this:

A:link IMG {border-style: outset; color: silver;}

As Figure 7-32 shows, the border is now based on the more nice and free css templates

#content {
position: absolute;
left: 25%;
width: 50%;
top: 106px;
background-color: #ffffff;
overflow: auto;

overflow: auto;

With overflow: auto; With overflow: you can determine how overflowing content should be treated.


visible = The element gets expanded to show the entire content.
hidden  = The content will be cut if it overflows.
scroll  = The browser should offer scroll bars.
auto    = The browser should decide how to render the element. Scroll bars are allowed.

Older browsers do not know support this property.
IE does not support overflow:visible

This is an easy one. If you wantNavigator 4 to use CSS at all, you have to go to the preferencesdialog and check the boxes for both style sheets and JavaScript. IfJavaScript is disabled, Navigator will not apply styles. Why? In theearly days of style sheets, there were a number of proposals forstyling. One of these was JavaScript Style Sheets ( JSSS), aninteresting hybrid of early CSS and JavaScript. It probablywon't surprise you to learn that JSSS was promoted by Netscape.Although JSSS was never adopted, Navigator 4's rendering engine

Of course, it's still possible to use these properties to keep an element from exceeding a certain size, as in this:

max-height: 30em; max-width: 20em;

The question here, though, is what happens if the content of the element doesn't all fit into the specified element size. Does it get cut off at the boundaries, or does it spill outside the positioned element? That's what the next section will a value of the border property, doesn't really matter.

Of course, by doing this, you're setting a border on the element, and that border will show up in other user agents as well. And, just to top things off, Navigator doesn't handle padding very well, so the previous example would result in a small amount of blank space between the content box and the borders. Altogether, it isn't a very pretty picture.
