I have a BES 4.0 with MDS and I use the Blackberry browser on my 7780. I can browse web sites with predictable results but if I browse to a page I wrote myself (pure html and some styles) I get inconsistent rendering on the BB.
It is a simple example (http://tux.fccgi.com/bbstatus/bare.php
- take a look) when viewed from desktop browsers it looks fine. From the BB it will draw the screen differently each time. There are about 4 or 5 different ways it will draw the bars including drawing it correctly. I've tried clearing the cache and moving the code to another server all together. (http://www.pacifier.com/~dhansen
- try it too.)
From either server I get the same rendering results. I've tried it from another Blackberry too (a 7280) with the same results.
If someone has seen this before, please let me know what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I've also noticed the BB doesn't play well with height and width parameters from IMG tags or styles. If I place a 1px by 10px image inside a <div> and specify background-repeat-x the box will not display at all.
I suspect something specific is at the core of these problems and the answer may relate to all my troubles. Thanks again. -Dave
