Box model article in CAP&Design
The latest issue (3/2006) of Swedish design magazine CAP&Design contains an article that I have written. The article explains the CSS box model and how to avoid problems with older versions of Internet Explorer for Windows using its own box model.
The article is spread over two pages and starts by explaining what the box model is and how the W3C box model differs from the IE box model. It then goes on to explain four different ways of either avoiding the problem altogether or working around it.
I hope this will help Swedish web designers realise that Internet Explorer for Windows has had support for the W3C box model since the release of version 6. I also hope it will lead to fewer sites being dependant on the IE box model, which can easily lead to designs breaking in modern browsers.
The article is not available online, so you’ll need to get hold of a copy of the printed magazine to read it.
