The following chapter:

http://teijenkins.hcmc.uvic.ca/job/TEIP5/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/CE.html

displays badly in IE 11 (and presumably prior versions); the bullets from the bulleted list in the first para are rendered over the top of the Table of contents box which is floated to the left of them.

This appears to be a long-standing IE layout bug:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/710158/why-do-my-list-item-bullets-overlap-floating-elements

and a couple of workarounds are suggested there. The chapter page itself does not validate:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fteijenkins.hcmc.uvic.ca%2Fjob%2FTEIP5%2FlastSuccessfulBuild%2Fartifact%2Frelease%2Fdoc%2Ftei-p5-doc%2Fen%2Fhtml%2FCE.html

which I think should also be release blocking. We should only release valid pages.

Discussion

  • can't help with the first one - i'd rewrite the prose so that it doesnt use a <list> there ...

    for second, that so silly its not true. but i have added a JS comment which should shut it up

     
  • validity problem fixed

    I have a couple of leads on the display bug; I'll follow up when I get a chance.

    I've committed what I believe to be a working fix in rev 12995. If no-one notices any bad side-effects, I'll close the ticket.

    No further reports of oddities from the crew, so I consider this one fixed.
