Hello, does anyone have any advice for when one's lists and alignments look okay in Firefox but look terrible in Internet Explorer? I have trouble with all my lists when converting a FrameMaker manual to FlashHelp and I have to go into the HTML for troublesome topics and add <ul> tags, etc. to make my lists appear okay. They look fine in Firefox but awful in IE (bullets appear under initial letters, alignment of paras if all wrong, etc. My next attempt will be to go into the CSS and see if I can change some paramters but is there something I'm obviously missing or any brower exception code I can place in headers, etc?
I'm attaching jpegs of the lists and of the html
Thanks in advance.
Your list is not nested correctly, but that shouldn't matter too much... The correct syntax is:
And I do think that your problem is css related, it might be something with the list-style-position, I found that the inside value gave me problems in IE.
Thanks, I tried changing the CSS but no luck. It was only when I unmapped the FM style and returned it to its 'source' that things looked better in IE. Still not perfect though. After three years I'm still to produce a Help file from Framemaker using Robohelp that I'm remotely happy with.
