Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Bugs: Fixed and Unfixed

I learned that, despite being Gecko-based, Chimera can’t render these pages as XML. So back it goes into receiving them as “text/html” (ie, no MathML support). And I filed a bug report with the Chimera team.

In case you’re keeping track, that means that the .htaccess file for this blog now looks like

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /~distler/blog/
RewriteRule ^$   index.html
RewriteCond  %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Gecko
RewriteRule \.html$   - [T=application/xhtml+xml]
RewriteCond  %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Chimera [OR]
RewriteCond  %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} Safari 
RewriteRule ^$|\.html$   - [T=text/html]

On the other hand, P&L Systems quietly released a new version of their Mesa spreadsheet, which fixes the printing bugs under Jaguar. Since I had previously ragged on them, I want to publicly say, “Thank You”.
