Template Doesn't Render Correctly in IE7


Recommended Posts

I started to use this template but discovered that some of the CSS doesn't work in IE7 (as can be seen by pasting the URL into NetRenderer).

 

In IE7, most of the linked text doesn't show applied styles - only plain blue underlined HTML links are displayed. This doesn't happen in Firefox, Chrome, and newer versions of IE. The CSS appears to validate OK. Does anyone know what's wrong?...

 

Here's the CSS:

 

@import  url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Vollkorn);
@import  url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster);

IE7 and IE6 don't like the rotate code and just stop applying font styles at that point. I found that if I deleted the code for IE6, IE7 then IE7 displayed the correct font styles but without the rotation:-

.rotate {
		-moz-transform: rotate(-1.5deg);  /* 
FF3.5+ */
      	-o-transform: rotate(-1.5deg);  /* Opera 10.5 
*/
 		-webkit-transform: rotate(-1.5deg); 
/* Saf3.1+, Chrome */
       /*filter:  
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Matrix
(sizingMethod='auto expand', 
                M11=0.9996573249755573, 
M12=0.02617694830787315, M21=-0.02617694830787315, 
M22=0.9996573249755573); deleted*/ /* IE6,IE7 */
       -ms-filter: 
"progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Matrix
(SizingMethod='auto expand',M11=0.9996573249755573, 
M12=0.02617694830787315, M21=-0.02617694830787315, 
M22=0.9996573249755573)"; /* IE8 */
              zoom: 1;}

there may be a way to correct the code for IE6 and IE7 rotation but I'm not sure what it is.

Wickham,

 

Thanks very much for your response - I'm not particularly interested in applying the "rotate" style, anyway. I had never heard of it before now...
