Blocking: #2035, #2499 Platform: Unknown
Ready: yes Confidential: no
Tester: Verified working: yes
Review URL(s):



Browser / OS: IE 8.0.6001 / Windows XP

(seems to effect all "platform pages" too, such as "/en/safari" and so on)

How to reproduce

  1. Visit platform page in IE8.
  2. Observe page layout.

Observed behaviour

Page layout appears to break and causes elements to shift out of position and overlap each other.

See IE8-BadLayoutTop.jpg and IE8-BadLayoutBottom.jpg.

Expected behaviour

Page layout to work correctly.

See Chrome-WorkingLayout.jpg.

I can reproduce as described, working on old site but broken on

Problem seems to be that div#content gets a width of 680px instead of 990px. Not sure why yet, possibly something to do with the order CSS files are included.
