Internet Explorer doing Peek-a-boo

Posted by Michiel Scholten in posts   

While I was redesigning the Dutch Mapleleaves Basketball club site [at this moment still the old, very ugly Fr***p*** generated version with a java menu], I noticed a very strange bug: in IE6, text would vanish [or not appear at all], and [re]appear when hovering over a button, selecting the invisible text or scrolling. I was really baffled, but it turned out a well-known bug in our good friend IE: the IE6 Peekaboo Bug. I fixed it by adding "line-hight: 1.2;" to the stylesheet for the block containing the content [and so, containing the floating sub navigation].

Check the current beta version for the real experience.

Sigh...
