Bottom positioning

Discussion in 'HTML' started by =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Fran=E7ois_de_Dardel?=, Dec 21, 2003.

  1. See: http://mapage.noos.fr/dardelf/2004.html

    Is there a way I can position a line ("Happy New Year") to the bottom of
    the window, irrespective of its size ? I think something was posted here
    recently, but I did not save the note.

    (Msg re-sent, because I did not see it in the NG 2 hours after sending
    the 1st one).

    Only Opera 7.x will render this correctly. Mozilla 1.x and MSIE 6 will
    treat bottom:0 relative to the viewport, not to the document. The
    correct way to position it relative to the viewport is to use
    position:fixed, not position absolute. The specs are also quite clear on
    this.

    Mozilla has a bug on this.
    Bug 105286: viewport used as containing block for absolutely positioned
    elements instead of root (percentage height, %, bottom)
    http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105286

    Opera is correct.

    Many thanks, Brucie, it works fine with Safari and Netscape 7, not with
    MSIE 5.2 (Mac) or iCab 2.9. Will test MSIE (PC) tomorrow.
