    Browsing Wiki with IE

    After the renewal, when I last tried using IE 7 and 8 with the Wiki - I got a message box quite a few times which said "The browser is not supported. Please update to a modern browser." I don't get it now but don't know if other IE users get these.

    There is a partition between the two columns on the wiki in IE7, which looks ugly to me

    Re: Browsing Wiki with IE

    The code below show that this should only be triggered by IE 6
    <!--[if lte IE 6]>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    if ($.cookie("fnie6n") == null) {
    alert('Your browser is no longer supported.\nPlease upgrade to a modern browser.');
    but the message is only generated when the cookie is null

    The following bit of code is executes

    <div style='border: 1px solid #F7941D; background: #FEEFDA; text-align: center; clear: both; height: 100px; position: relative;'> <div style='position: absolute; right: 3px; top: 3px; font-family: courier new; font-weight: bold;'><a href='#' onclick='javascript:this.parentNode.parentNode.style.display="none"; return false;'><img src='//www.forum.nokia.com/images/ie6nomore-cornerx.jpg' style='border: none;' alt='Close this notice'/></a></div> <div style='width: 700px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: left; padding: 0; overflow: hidden; color: black;'> <div style='width: 75px; float: left;'><img src='//www.forum.nokia.com/images/ie6nomore-warning.jpg' alt='Warning!'/></div> We do not fully support your browser version</div> <div style='font-size: 12px; margin-top: 6px; line-height: 12px;'>We are working to extend and improve our browser support, but in the meantime would direct you to use, Firefox 3.6, IE 7, Mozilla 3 to use all the features on this site.</div> <img src='//www.forum.nokia.com/images/ie6nomore-opera.png' style='border: none;' alt='Get Opera'/></a></div> </div> </div>
    so even if you have IE8 you get this message on the first access!

    Re: Browsing Wiki with IE

    There is a bit more on this IE7/IE8 problem.

    The problem remains in this section of code due to the size of the image generated may render larger in
    IE7 than Firefox. In IE7 there is a large gap about 5 lines in FF3.5 the is no gap!!

    I believe this is possibly IE7 changes the way this line is interperted an the 80 columns rolls off the screen
