MT Installation and Opera CSS observations
Good news first: I finally managed to set up Movable Type on my server, yeah! It was my first try and it turned out to be so easy that I was wondering what went wrong the first two times.
Since the design for this blog was finished already half a year ago, I am keen on creating my own templates and make it work like I want it to work. We'll see...
Opera and media="print"
This one is another curiosity that came up during our CSS workshop.
Consider a given file with two linked stylesheets. One's for rendering on
screen while the other is meant for styling the printed output, using the
according media-types. The screen version's styled with a background-image
html, while there's no background-image assigned to the
print CSS at all.
See the following test-file for reference: Opera. To print or not to print. Now, with these given conditions, make sure your Opera print options are like the following:
Check Print page background.
Now, go either to Opera's print preview or print out the page. And this is
what happens. Opera is misleadingly printing out the background-image we declared
in the screen-styles. On top of that, it is ignoring our
none; (which should not be needed) declaration we made in our print-styles.
Applying a completely different background-image to the print styles doesn't change anything either. It always shows the image we wanted to show up only on screen. Go see for yourself.
Now, would you call this a bug or am I missing something completely?
Note: I even tried embedded styles and using the
method for the different stylesheets. Same effect. This behaviour occurs in
both versions I tested (Opera 7.23 Build 3227 and Opera 7.50 Build 3494 on
