Mats Palmgren fixed a longstanding Mozilla bug yesterday. Mouse wheel scrolling on a
overflow didn't work (either
scroll). Now it does!
Another bug that is both interesting for CSS people and seems to be getting attention is the implementation of URI values for the
cursor property. Quite a few patches and reviews have been added already and it seems that Mozilla is going to support PNG images and
.cur files. Nice!
Dare I say... finally? I'm talking about the latter. I always played with the idea of using PNG and GIF files as cursors, and was sadly disappointment when no browser seemed to support it. It's great news that my personal browser of choice will.
Now s/o should fix this for firefox too!
Firefox uses the Gecko rendering engine, so it should just take an update of the engine & a rebuild of Firefox. I'd expect it to be in the next version of both browsers.
Very nice, indeed. Now, get up to date with generated content, and I'll be one happy man, even though from the other side of the barricade :) How I dream of the day when I will be able to remove all pollution of Gecko overrides from my stylesheets...

One of Eric Meyer's CSS demos showed a unique cursor years ago which only worked in IE:

Like favicons, I guess all you need to do is rename the gif to ".ani" to make it work?
Maybe, but '.ani' isn't going to work in Mozilla (yet). The patch was approved by the way. With a bit of luck it will be checked in this week, maybe even today :-)
You know what bugs me most about Mozilla based browsers? When I've got a
table with a
caption and I add a CSS
margin-top value to the
If you haven't tried it before, it acts as if Moz thinks the
caption element isn't part of the
table. Acts like it's a completely unrelated element outside the
