  • Stupid IE and the <hr /> tag?

    Anybody know how to fix the "box" that IE puts around an HR element? I'm using CSS to apply a background image to a design and it works except for that. I've tried setting border: 0 and even applying the same color background to it that matches the color of the background behind it. No go. Any help? Thanks!

    hmm, I never had that problem. Could you screen shot for us?
    You could also use a div with a "border-bottom:" for css.

      I've got code to make a normal flat line.

      Using a background image is... tricky.

      The {color} property controls the rule's color in IE6/7. If your rule has any height to it, you will get a big thick line.

      I had this same problem this week, my final solution was to stick IE6 and 7 with a normal line by setting height to 0 and using padding to push out the background image so other browsers see it right.

      Most people just end up using a div. Sorry I couldnt be any more help. Fortunately IE8 fixes this nonsense.

        Thanks guys. I think for sake of having to reinvent the wheel, I'm just going to scratch the HR tag and go with the old DIV standby. Seems a little easier to make more cross-browser compliant. Thanks for the info guys!

          First, give up on the idea of providing a client a printout of 'what they will be getting'
          You can give them a general idea but not a color accurate one.

          Conduct a survey on what is the average salary of a graphic designer in your area per project. You can use these range in giving your service fee per project.

          Yes. Also be aware that other cultures give feedback differently and communicate differently. Also be aware that cultural stereotypes don't apply to everyone in that culture.
