More on Safari and asp:Menu

Hi,

Sorry for the repost - my ISP is having huge usenet problems at the
moment...

Following on with the problems of asp:Menu controls and Safari, I found the
following article:
http://weblogs.asp.net/dannychen/arc...21/431121.aspx

Very interesting - I'll be examining some of the suggested workarounds
later.

However, the article mentions that the "bugs" (if that's indeed what they
are) in the asp:Menu control are in the process of being fixed. Can anyone
confirm that and, if so, is there an anticipated timeframe for the fix?

It's the old cross-browser / cross-platform dilemma again...

Safari accounts for approximately 2% of the world's browsers, so why even
bother with it?
http://www.thecounter.com/stats/2006/May/browser.php

It's only available on MacOS which represents approximately 3% of the
world's operating systems surfing the net, so why even bother with it?
http://www.thecounter.com/stats/2006/May/os.php

Most Mac users will probably be so tired of the sites they visit with it not
working properly that they'll probably have installed FireFox anyway (which
renders asp:Menu and other webcontrols perfectly), so why bother with it?

Problem is, I have a reasonably important client who uses it and loves it -
he's read somewhere that it's the safest browser available and is the only
one to conform to some standard or other, therefore the problem is mine not
Safari's...

I have (some) sympathy with this, and I don't want to lose the work... :-)
However, I'm finding that I'm probably spending as much time testing and
re-tweaking stuff just to get it to display properly on Safari as I am for
all other platforms and browsers put together!

As always, very interested in other people's experiences in this area.

G'day, I'm trying to implement a graphical horizontal Menu-bar feeding off a SiteMapDataSource with some top-level menu-items and a couple of sub-menus. I've managed to get the menu bar working, but noticed that the top-level items were spaced generously. Once the menu renders on the screen I find all these "margin-left=16px"

Playing around with asp.net 2.0 and asp:menu for the first time.. what's the attribute/code so that each item in my menu has a *SEPERATE* border around it? Seems I can only make the border around the entire menu. I'd like the menu to look like a datagrid. Here's my code. <form id="form1" runat="server"> <div> <asp:Menu ID="Menu1"...
