absolute positioning on Macintosh Opera and Safari

P: n/a
Els
Hi all,

Whilst testing other things on www.browsercam.com, I found
that some pages with absolute positioned pictures were all
messed up in Mac's Opera 6.0 and even worse on Safari 1.0,
and worse again on Linux' Konqueror 3.0.5.

I've collected some of the views on
http://www.browsercam.com/public.aspx?proj_id=43251
Where for each of the 3 pages I selected, you can see the
view as intended (Moz 1.6-Mac) followed by the messed-up ones.

Can anyone help me out as to why specificly Mac-Opera 6.0 is
pushing the pics together?
Safari and Konqueror don't seem to 'obey' the absolute
positioning at all. Does anyone have a solution for that?

The url's to the pages on the web are

Found this one myself: I had an absolute positioned div in
another absolute positioned div. That doesn't make Safari
happy. So that's fixed, but it didn't change anything for
Opera. Opera on a Mac still is pushing the pics together,
and I don't see any reason for that.
Can anyone help me with this?

Mac OSX 10.2.8, Safari build v85
I don't get the same results as browsercam at all, but see pretty much
the same thing as mozilla. The only real issue is with the fixed width,
and how it looks in a narrower window.

Thanks, Kchayka, that's good to know. I thought browsercam
was using real browsers to make the screenprints. Now I hope
it's not just the platform or the build that is different...

Yes, I'm aware of that. Sacrificed that to be able to have
certain layouts. Maybe in future I'll make a real liquid
version ;-)

Ah, no, I know why the difference.
As I said in my second post: I already altered the file to
make Safari happy.

It's only Opera on a Mac that gives strange results now.
