Hi Gurus

Have a look at:

http://www.lakebrunner.co.nz/bookings.php

The form does not show at all in IE7.0 - is this the Pekaboo bug?

Any ideas greatly appreciated....

Nicolaas

Wish I could help. Afraid to download IE 7 until at LEAST service pack
2. That is because IE (strangely) REPLACES current version of IE,
instead of letting one "try it out" on the side.

That being said, your site is elegant, beautiful and well done (at
least in IE 6).

Yes, you are totally right about the replacement thing - not I cant
even check if it worked in IE6.0 anymore. Does the form show in IE6.0?

I though IE7.0 was supposed to be better

Thanks

Nicolaas

Hi.
I would not even bother with IE7 yet, it's still in beta, which means
it probably has bugs which have not been fixxed yet.

Sure you can...

http://browsers.evolt.org/?ie/32bit/standalone

Download all of the versions of IE that you want from that place - unzip
them and run them from wherever you unzipped them to. No installation is
required, and you can run versions of IE from 3 to 6 without any major
problems.

> I though IE7.0 was supposed to be better

^^^^^^
I think you spelt "beta" wrong

Will one thing his image shows your menus break badly if you increase
the font size.

BAD:
#nav li {width: 83px; ...

BETTER:
#nav li { width: 6.5em; ...

Now the container is scaled proportionally with respect to the font size
and can grow or shrink as the user changes his default size.

Chris also has Flash either disabled or not installed. would it not look
better to supply and alternate 'static' logo in such situation than the
ugly placeholder. It is not like the it being a movie is important for
content, but merely decorative; but I would say displaying the logo *is*
important for company identity. If the person do not have Flash it most
likely is intensional so I would just supply a static logo here...

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="v/f1.swf" width="250"
height="400">
<param name="movie" value="v/f1.swf" />
<param name="BGCOLOR" value="#eee" />

<img src="lbl_logo.jpg" width="250" height="400" alt="Lake Brunner
Lodge">
</object>

Take care,

How does that distinguish it from any version of IE ever distributed?

Idle question: if an application has bugs, isn't it a given that they
haven't been fixed yet?
