Documentation margins???

Posted by martinog on 2007-08-22 12:47

I downloaded ActivePerl 5.8.8 build 822. The documentation left margins cause the first bit of text to be cut off. Does anyone know about this?? I did a search on this forum & couldn't find anything. I'm running Windows XP, Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11. Thanks.

This is fixed now, so the next release will have a more readable table of contents in the frame on the left. Here's a fix I provided to another user who had this problem:

If you want to, you can open C:\Perl\html\Active.css in an editor and change
the 'ul' section to the following:

list-style-image: url("images/greysmallbullet.gif");
margin-left: 1em;
padding-left: 2em;

The actual fix in the new version gives you a more compact list view in the
left nav frame (margin-left: 0; padding-left: 1.5em) while leaving other lists
with the spacing above. You can use those more compact settings if you prefer
(they'll make the left nav more readable), but other nested lists in the
documentation may look a little squished.


My fault for not testing a previous CSS change in IE. :(
