Unfortunately (and not unusual), HTML CSS do not work the same way between different browser implementations. Those of you who use Firefox may have noticed that the Recent Articles table (above, on the main blog page) does not format correctly. The correct formatting right aligns the dates (that is, all the "-" line up vertically).

If anyone knows a fix for my CSS .offset style, please let me know or post a comment here. I suppose we could go back to using good-old HTML tables if necessary.

SPAN is not supporting width. Use DIV instead with display: inline

test is best

[div style="display: inline; width: 100px;"]test[/div] is best

interesting, it can be span so just add the display: inline and that's all

Or add {float: left;} to the .offset style?

I could not get display: inline to do it for some reason.

float: left - worked (although it removes a single space before the - separator).

Thanks for the suggestions. The float method works well enough.

Always the little tweaks -- adding {padding-right: 0.25em} to .offset will return you the space.

Worked, thanks. Fixes Safari too.

Using nbsp's around the - instead of spaces will work too, and be more consistent between different fonts.
