[Express] FW pixel by pixel great, BUT...

I discovered that Safari is the only browser that shows FW-made sites correct, every pixel on the right place, with the same measures like FW. Other browsers - they seems not to confirm to HTML rules - will show FW-sites different, it will say ‘a little bit greater’. It happens that textblocks will takes one line extra in FireFox. And that caused that other elements on the webpage will shift downwards.
The FW slice-function divide an image in parts/slices and will correct be shown - again - in Safari well. But in FF it is shown with empty gaps/lines in between.
So all by all, it seems that the FW ‘pixel accurate’ is only correct for the Safari browser – with ± 4 % users. The other 96 % of the browsers in this world is shown FW-made sites WRONG (elements will shown lower on the webpages). 96 Percent is an terrible figure, in case this is truth.
Okay, in many cases it is possible to hold in mind that ‘some extra room could be needed’…
Plse let me know whether I miss some useful info.

Like all equipment it is not usually the ‘tool’ that is at fault rather the ‘operator’

It may well be that your construction method is causing your problems.

If you want to post a link to an online example then we can help you diagnose specific issues.

Hi Henk; if this is an example of how Freeway isn’t ‘pixel perfect’, then it’s definitely operator error, not Freeway’s fault.

This site has been made as though the web was just like DTP, and that things that are close to each other stay exactly where you put them, no mater what happens. Enlarge the text in your browser, and the whole layout falls apart, but unless you take steps to prevent it, that’s just what you’d expect to happen.

Make it as a inline ‘box model’ site, or use the wonderful Relative Page Layout action, and all those problems will go away.

best wishes,

Hi Paul,

agree - but in in total this won’t be a simple operation here.

If I looked the page correct, the complete image-work has been done external, merged and thrown into a (poor) freeway-doc as a background-image?

I never had any look at the Express Version, but either Express or Pro, this is totally untypical thing to do.

He wrote something about “slice-function” within Freeway. I tend to see this as a misunderstanding, cause I thought this needs to have a layer-based layout, so Pro recommended.

Is Express supporting CSS layered design? Not sure here.

But in common, the preferred workflow would be, to layout all your artwork within Freeway, just the same way you would do within a DTP Program. By doing this, Freeway starts to do a marvelous job and producing great code, clean, efficient and valid.

Or was I member of the 4% without recognizing it? A strange judge that would make me wonder.

BTW - Your page looks fine for me within Safari and FF.

Cheers

Thomas

Agreed - there is no way that a single background image is going to work for you - apart from the fact that if you want to move something you need to change that whole bg image rather than just move a graphic box about.

Box model is not an option in Express but dragging/dropping your pics onto the page should work just fine.

Oops, I didn’t realise this was an Express site. Is the RPL action available in Express?

It isn’t, but, with table layout as default, it shouldn’t be needed.
