Iridia Creative website glitch with some browsers

July 9, 2009 at 8:22 am Leave a comment

It appears that some browsers have difficulty displaying the Iridia Creative website correctly. I have been testing the site with a number of browsers on multiple operating systems, including the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, Microsoft Internet Explorer, K-Meleon, Amaya, and Epiphany.

This may be due to some browsers not interpreting CSS as it should.

If you cannot see the text, if the text goes invisible or instead shows Unicode numbers (small numbers in boxes), use the no-CSS, lite graphic version below:

Also the problem may be resolved by forcing your browser to ignore CSS and use fonts of your choice (Arial, Helvetica and FreeSans should look okay). Since this problem is largely limited to Firefox and other Firefox-derived browsers in Linux, try this if you are using Linux:

Edit (Alt-E) > Preferences (n) > Content tab > Fonts and Colors > Advanced button > de-select “Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above”

Press OK, go back to Preferences > Content

> Fonts and Colors > Colors button > select “Use system colors”, deselect “Allow pages to choose their own colors…”

Additionally, Opera 9.64 for Linux displays the site correctly but it may not be in your distribution’s repository. You can download the installer file from Opera’s website. (This will involve a knowledge of unpacking a .tar.gz file, then running the installation shell script by using chmod and ./ inside the shell.)
