User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 i was working on a page tonight helping someone on a list i belong to when i noticed a strange phenomenon. i was zooming text in ie, moz, ff, nn7.2, nn8Beta and opera 8. i had a negative margin set for a div to position it. when i zoomed the text, the negative div broke the design (crawling up the page) in all of the browsers except opera 8. the opera 8 page stayed together and resized in relation to all of the elements. margins appeared to remain the same instead of increasing like in the other browsers. i would be glad to send you the files i was using when i discovered this if you would like. you can run your own tests to see for yourself. i think that this development is a positive step for cross-browser and cross-platform standards. it would be wonderful if we could eliminate hacks in the future by developing products that behaved the same. sure this would mean that a "trade secret" becomes "public domain", but look at the benefit for the web community and for web designers; and for standards that we are all striving to introduce and implement. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.zoom text several times or one large increment 2. 3. Actual Results: the pix div with the negative margin crawled up the page and broke the design. the margins appeared to increased disproportionately. Expected Results: the software should have held positions and margins and increased in size in relation to the design resolution.
