Problem with “table-cell” in Safari

Once having met the problem, I found anything on the Web. Therefore this might be helpful for someone starting to create their own web-pages in a Web2.0 manner.

As I thought FireFox is the best browser (stop holywar :), firstly I created pages that are rendered perfectly in FireFox. What is great: all other browsers (of course except for buggy IE6) rendered pages in the same way. But then, as ‘div’ markup became popular, I tried to change the way of creating web-pages. Of course sometimes this suits me best. The idea is to use display: table-cell; declaration instead of old float: left.

But Safari is the one, that thinks different. While “all” browsers rendered page correctly, Safari put any div randomly on the top of the page. The solution is to add another div width display: table-row; declaration so that Safari start render everything perfectly.

Contrasts in Design

Human eye can complete some forms (according to our imagination) in order to understand them better. But eyes do not always interpret things as they are. Classic example: “MWA” on bright background seems to be darker than on a grey one, while both “MWA"s have the same font color.
