    • Here's some interesting info direct from Molly Holzschlag's blog: http://www.molly.com/2005/07/05/wasp...web-standards/


      Apparently, WaSP and the IE7 team are collaborating to ensure it's standards-compliant. Good news!

Can anyone tell me if the menu bar and tab bar are moveable? Also, why do the place the exit button all the way over on the right when it should be on the tab itself?

              This explains why Windows Update doesn't work in it?

                  Windows Update does a check for your Windows version number and other system info. I doubt Microsoft wants WU to run on Vista or IE7. They don't want users running beta software to apply patches for previous versions, or patches that may affect vital operating system components, now do they?

                      Even just fixing the box model on its own would be a big relief for a ton of designers out there. Few people have an idea of how many hacks your average CSS-based site has to address this single problem alone.

                      • Right now, they're beta testing a new version of Windows Update (6.2). Not sure if it will include Vista or not.

                          I always love new Windows Update versions. They look so pretty!

                          (And BITS is still doing its job, so I don't see very much of an end-user feature upgrade)

                            You can avoid the box-model issues entirely in IE by seperating padding/borders from width/height anyway.. Simple practice offers a simple solution Regardless, I'm going to be stuck here having to use the holly hack all the time for IE5+6 for a couple of years anyway so whilst this is a big jump, nothing will change for us

                            • That's true, but only to a limited extent. Once you start having nested and floated elements, IE starts getting messy.
