The :hover-experience

In August of last year I sent a message to the css-discuss mailing list, including a test case showing a frustrating IE/Win problem that I could not find any mention of. A couple of people on the list started dissecting the problem, and Ingo Chao’s article Quirky Percentages in IE6’s Visual Formatting Model provides an explanation of why the problem occurs.

Innumerable are the ways this evil browser has of driving web professionals insane.
