IE7 image rendering problem

P: n/a
Hello:

I maintain a web site for a friend. I recently discovered that one page on
the site does not display properly on IE7. Here is the screenshot if you do
not use IE7:

http://browsershots.org/screenshots/...afb9c3bf1cb10/

The page itself can be viewed at

http://www.serhangungor.com/refs/

and the style sheet is at

http://www.serhangungor.com/site.css

Notice that some of the images are cropped or not visible and right-
clicking in the image area results in a context menu with items such as
"Show Picture" or "Save Picture" missing.

Both the HTML and the CSS validate (although I would be the last person to
claim that they are well done). The page displays properly in a whole slew
of other browsers (there does seem to be problems with Safari browsers on
Mac -- I have a feeling these are all related).

I would appreciate it if anyone can give me a clue as to what might be
going on.

Ah, one that I know very well. IE7's little problem with italic font
next to a float. Yes very bizarre. You can test to confirm, just change

blockquote.ref { font-style: italic; }

to

blockquote.ref { font-style: normal; }

and see IE7 behave. BTW IE6, 5.5 & 5 have not problem with it...this
baby is all IE7's!

Thank you. This was driving me nuts and I would have never figured it
out on my own. Thank you.

Now, I need to explain this to my friend ;-)

Tell him that italic text is hard to read, and that you heard this on
Usenet. <g>

(It really is...)

This becoming recursive now ... I would first have to explain Usenet.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Well the real issue is Why does IE7 screw up in the first place. It
shouldn't even if you do choose illegible italic. In my discovery, it
was only the default behavior of the EM element. I wasn't using *large
blocks* of italic font.

IE7 Borks on:

Whereas to placate IE7 I had to change the default style of EM to be
like STRONG...

em { font-style: normal; font-weight: bold; }

Oh the world would be a better place without IE. I can only imagine the
little "goodies" IE8 will bring us!

Take care,
