Bugs noted

Since this is, after all, a weblog I’ll commence my code-combing and document all the problems I run into. Here goes nothing:

  1. Complete disregard for the extremely simple a:link pseudo-element when an id is attached. Explicitly- a:link#header1{color: #FFF;} does nothing to style the link in question. It is quite possibly the only browser I know of to neglect this style.
  2. text-transform: lowercase causes an all-out Safari clusterfuck. That statement, and that statement alone, is the cause for my Safari headache. In fact any use of the text-transform style (with the exception of text-transform: none) causes the same problem. I’ve worked around the problem (ie- I changed “Decaffeinated” to “decaffeinated” on the site), and though it destroys much of the semantic correctness I hold so dear I am prepared to forfeit my capital D for now.
  3. Margins aren’t being applied to inline list items. This doesn’t really bother me so much, considering many browsers fail to display inline lists as being inline… but in this case a half-assed implementation is probably more crippling (to the user) than no implementation at all.

After all that, decaffeinated.org now displays in Safari! No more crashes, and only a few appearance glitches. Bugs have been reported to Apple, and I’m looking forward to future beta releases. Still… Safari won’t make its way into my heart until it loses the god-awful brushed-metal look, and since that’s not going to happen I’m sticking to Camino. Now for that pizza…
