Dotnet under Apple Safari browser

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am having huge problems with a very simple dotnet framework web page
(www.gbab.net/ztest3.aspx) , it does NOT render correctly under Apple's
Safari. The DIV's do not align amd float as they should, and do in Dotnet.
The page is really, really simple, and it has a CSS and with NO masterpage.

I have tried using the following as recommendations made earlier in this
Newsgroup:-

1) Adding the following code to the page's Page_PreInit method:
if (Request.Browser.Browser.Contains("Safari")){
this.ClientTarget = "uplevel";
}

2) incorporating a Browsercap section in the web.config as per:
http://slingfive.com/pages/code/browserCaps/

3) Ensuring the page is validated as XHTML-compliant standard TML (used
http://validator.w3.org/)

BUT I STILL GET THE PROBLEM!

Safari does not handle CSS and DIV's properly! What bugs me, is that there
are some pretty sophisticated Dotnet sites out there that work beautifully
under Safari! And I left wondering what it is that I am doing wrong!

Please help!

Thank you

Edward

I already told you that your site displays EXACTLY THE SAME on Safari,
FireFox, Netscape and Opera on my Mac so, whatever you're doing, it's not
specifically a Safari issue...

Incidentally, it also displays exactly the same on Mozilla, Camino and
SeaMonkey...

how can you say it displays the same when it does not! I see differences
between the Safari browsers I have tested it and the IE's, where it displays
correctly?

What Marks telling you is that he sees it without problems on many different
browsers, which means it may be localised to your machines and browsers.
I'm suprised he tested so comprehensively for you, so simply disagreeing
with his findings certainly wont get you a solution - go and test on a
different mac environment as Marks findings tell me your problem is not
being reproduced in every browser. You may see similar findings!

If you dont have one there are some online testing services if you look
about or build a virtual mac and test through that.

and what I am saying is that I have tested that web page on on 8 different
Macs from ranging notebooks to the latest desktops. The Macs are running
different versions of Apple OS and Safaris, and I have not seen ONE that
displays the page correctly! I have friends out there on the Internet who
use the Mac at home and on every instance the formatting of the page in
question, under Safari, is not right!

However, when the browser is IE6 under Windows 2000, Windows 2003 or XP it
looks fine!

I can only conclude that the issue is with Safari!

Hi John,

I DO appreciate Mark's help immensely. I am not disagreeing with his
findings, but his conclusion that Safari is displays the page corrently! My
findings are also to be taken into consideration, and so far I have not seen
my wep page looking corrently under any of the 8 different Safari's/Mac
environments!

Where did you read that your page is working correctly under Safari?
Mark only said it "displays EXACTLY THE SAME on Safari,
FireFox, Netscape and Opera" on his mac. He didn't say it was "correctly
displayed".

I think you're both talking about different things ;-)

You probably made errors writing your page. IE is known for allowing
(and forgiving) non-standard coding, CSS or script. It's always best to
code for a standard compliant browser like Mozilla, and then to check
the page on IE.

I followed Mark's advice and tested it under http://validator.w3.org/, which
stated the page was compliant! That's when I though the issue was with
Safari!

Anyway, I accept what you say that IE is known for allowing (and forgiving)
non-standard coding, CSS or scripting terms of errors, whereas Safari,
FireFox, Netscape and Opera are not! I will get my hands on Mozilla test my
web page from now on.

thanks

you are absolutely right Mark!

I misunderstood the whole issue and I see now that the issue is related to
the fact Microsoft IE/Visual Studio allow too many formatting issues to get
though!

I really feel letdown by Microsoft for not providing an honest view of what
the page would look like in the real world!

I just have downloaded Mozilla and I will be testing my dotnet pages on
other NON IE browsers from now on!

Meanwhile, I thank you for your patience and time......

I am giong to roll up my sleeves and have to learn how to properly design
web pages.... especially given that I cannot rely on Microsoft to show me
the way! :-)

FWIW, IE7 coming soon will be much, much stricter than IE6 ever was, and
much more standard compliant. Seems that they finally learned.

I looked at your site which is very cool andsleek indeed!

I was wondering where in your dotnet code you place your meta tags. Are you
using masterpages?

>Yes, but I must admit I have been very lazy and only have the meta tags
in the master, where I should be updating them page by page based on the
content.

>>Hi John,

I looked at your site which is very cool andsleek indeed!

I was wondering where in your dotnet code you place your meta tags. Are
you using masterpages?

thanks

Edward

What Marks telling you is that he sees it without problems on many
different browsers, which means it may be localised to your machines
and browsers. I'm suprised he tested so comprehensively for you, so
simply disagreeing with his findings certainly wont get you a
solution - go and test on a different mac environment as Marks findings
tell me your problem is not being reproduced in every browser. You may
see similar findings!

If you dont have one there are some online testing services if you look
about or build a virtual mac and test through that.

>I already told you that your site displays EXACTLY THE SAME on Safari
how can you say it displays the same when it does not! I see
differences between the Safari browsers I have tested it and the IE's,
where it displays correctly?
