This is something for those who care for IE6 and not W3C Standards. Recently I worked on a project, for which the layout was liquid and one of the requirements was to use a minimum width of 1000px. Is that a problem? Not at all.
The problem was to make it compatible on all major browsers, including IE6 !!!!!. I wonder why people still use IE.
As usual, I started searching for the solution on the right top of my Firefox window (yes, google!) and found a few websites which had discussions on the same topic. Most of them had lengthy posts and not the real solution. After going through a couple of sites, I concluded with the following solution. I hope this would help those who come across the same problem.
width: expression(document.body.clientWidth < 1002? "1000px" : "auto");
Just add the above line in your CSS. Replace 1000px with the min-width value and replace 1002 with a value slightly greater than the min-width. To define the max-width, just replace the "<" with ">".
- Not W3C valid
That's all! I don't want this post to be lengthy like the others I went through
