"plainlinks" class issues in IE, Opera
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: mrnobo1024

from main.css:
#bodyContent .plainlinks a {

background: none !important;
padding: 0;

This will override the #bodyContent a[href ^="http://"]
rule that comes before it in main.css, but not the
#bodyContent a.external rule in the later included
IE60Fixes.css. The padding here needs !important too

Patch against CVS HEAD

Should fix it.

Attached: Bug_714_class_plainlinks_doesn_t_remove_padding_on_IE.patch

Seems to work fine on IE 6.0; no need for a patch?

Comment migrated from bug 4338:

"In the Opera web browser the "plainlinks" are not shown as they should. There
is a gap between the link and the following letter or full stop (the external
link symbol is only hidden, but not removed)."

This has to be added to main.css:
