CSS absolute positioning pop quiz
Given a html element with a min-width of 1000px, and an absolutely positioned block that sticks with the top right corner, what would it be positioned when the inner width of the window is less than 1000px (e.g. resizing the window, reducing the screen resolution, etc)?
- The block should sticks with the html element.
- The block should sticks with the window.
I found that only Mozilla chooses the first option, which is what I wanted. Other browsers (IE, Opera, Konqueror) choose the second option. While I think Mozilla is the only right one, I'd file a bug in bugzilla if it is actually wrong.
P.S. I use the expression hack to emulate min-width in IE.

Adventure with Deer Park Alpha 2
For some reasons, Deer Park Alpha 2 seems quite unstable on my machine: it crushed almost ten times in these 3 days. Hopefully these will be fixed in Deer Park Beta. :-/

One of my beloved pet bugs, bug 260794, will soon be one year old, I got to prepare a birthday cake for it. ;-)
Thanks to Lachy's discovery, I can now space table columns equally with CSS. Simply apply
table-layout: fixed to the table element (or element with
display: table or
display: inline-table). Columns with no width specified will be spaced equally, no matter how long or short their contents are. And surprisingly, this works in Internet Explorer as well.

The "release candidate" for Deer Park Alpha 2 is out. One of the most visible improvements is the enabling of the Fastback feature, which allows much faster page forwarding and backwarding like that in Opera. That's really exciting!
P.S. Please uninstall Alpha 1 before installing this build. I found that it seems to be ignoring the Alpha 1 that I previously installed, hence, extra shortcuts and extra uninstallation entry. :-(

Oops, I seem to had missed this news: the community-driven Mozilla suite is now officially known as SeaMonkey, which was originally the codename of the Mozilla Application Suite. An alpha version will be out within the next few weeks. Let's see what it will turn into. ;-)
P.S. The version number will be reset as 1.0. So it will be SeaMonkey 1.0, not SeaMonkey 1.8.
