A followup to my last post about unobtrusive fieldsets and legends. Safari and Konquerer are applying the relative positioning just as Opera does. But they had already removed all indent on the
legend as Gecko does. This is a problem as both Opera and Safari are under constant developement and have good CSS support. So how do we distinguish between them?
There are some CSS hacks that cause code to be treated differently by these browsers but instead of relying on poor CSS parsing in older browsers (as in most IE5 hacks) they rely on parts of the CSS spec that aren’t supported yet (e.g. the :lang hack). But Opera 9.1 or Safari 2.1 might well support them, rendering the hack useless.
And it’s not a case of one browser being wrong,
legend elements are somewhat peculiar and the default implementation of their presentation can legitimately vary between browsers.
