"bz" mentioned on IRC that servers are sending the wrong content type details with the file. Instead of sending text/css, application/x-pointplus is being sent. This only applies in strict mode with DTD statement. Adding the following into a .htaccess file should solve the problem. AddType text/css .css Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Load URL 2. 3. Actual Results: Formatting and text is in browser's default fonts etc. Expected Results: Fonts and other styles should be applied to parts of the page.
Yep, I can confirm this, I was part of the discussion on IRC. The reasoning is because we are in strict (standards) mode. To solve this, they can either remove the URI from the DTD, or fix the way their server sends .css files. I can't find any contact info though.
Their main page, http://www.blueyonder.co.uk/ also has the same problem. Here, we get switched in to standards mode because of the SYSTEM DTD. They also might fall prey to the image descender problem (bug 22274) on the main page.
WFM on Moz 096, except small glith on the top menus (News, Gaming, Compete...) with menu items being lowered by 2 px) Setting P4. Severity to Trivial.
> WFM on Moz 096 Tristan: yes it works on 096. This is a new feature that landed days after we branched for 096. It is in 097 and we have a release note on it. Look again in 097 or a nightly. Back to normal, and clearing priority for re-evaluation
Caillon: I am running 097 and N621, and they render the same as IE5. (excepted the small menu glitch mentionned previously). Can you elaborate ? Has the web site been updated ?
The web site seems fine now on build 2002010608 Win32. I don't know if it's been updated or not.
Created attachment 63951 [details] Screenshot This is made using Linux build 2002010706. There are supposed to be boxes around the text. The "Game Highlights" and "News" headings are supposed to have a blue background, and the text has a whitish background. At the moment I don't have access to MSIE to see what it looks like there, but if it looks the same as this screenshot, then the page is worse than I thought.
Confirming on 098 on Win2000. Contacted the site using http://help.blueyonder.co.uk/contact/enquiries.html Accepting bug. Target -> April Setting P3.
FWIW, A search for "css" and "mime" reveals 6-8 bugs that I believe are related to the mime type issue. I first saw this when I upgraded from 0.9.5 to 0.9.8. The problem continued when I recently upgraded to 0.9.9. From what I've read, this first appeared in 0.9.7 but I can't confirm that. I spent some time wringing out CSS rendering and quickly confirmed that my server was sending the mime type as "text/plain" when it clearly should have been "text/css". After adding an entry to mime.types to my ISP's apache server running on BSD, pages now render correctly in 0.9.8 & 9. I went back to verify IE and Opera continue to render correctly, but unfortunately could not recheck on 0.9.5 since I killed that during the upgrade process. All client-side work was done on Win2K: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 (06)
Fixed by blueyonder. :-)
This is fixed per comment #10 and verified.
