Glad I did the security update. Just before my iBook would run out of battery juice, the speech function would kick in and tell me the time (and spoken user interface was turned off)! Not only that, but every time I launched iTunes, I was asked for my account purchase-password!<br><br>Yikes...<br><br>-------<br>Predictable. Consistent. Either way, it's the same thing.

safari reset all its bookmakrs (YES I USE SARAFI, FF doesn't allow middle click (for me) and it's annoying the heck out of me).<br>Selecting text and pictures are weird now<br>Renders XML correctly, though (finally)<br>Renders more CSS correctly (yay)<br><br><br>

Yeah....10.3.9 loaded up my news bookmark with a bunch of crap I had to delete. <br><br>On the plus side, secure sites only take 3 days to render instead of 10. That's progress!<br><br>

I don't know if its because the OS is more bloated or the quality control just isn't as good, but the updates are really hit or miss with me these days. 10.3.8 completely broke all internet filesharing for me. I was forced to do an archive and reinstall to get it back to 10.3.7. I think I'll stay here until Tiger, and even then have a volume with Panther on it.<br><br>I know that Apple is always going to miss a few bugs, but it seems to be a lot more frequent than it was a couple years ago.<br><br>

Yeah...I know what you mean. If you have a mission-critical work machine, it's almost like you need an update-testing Mac. <br><br>

After updating to 10.3.9, I noticed the new Safari has joined the ranks of the lastest Firefox and Camino builds in not displaying table heights properly when they're defined as percentages. This was fine in 1.2, now Safari 1.3 is incapable of centering things vertically. Here are test files:<br><br>Height in pixels. Works fine.<br><br>Height in percent. It's all broked.<br><br>This is plain vanilla HTML and it's not working. What gives?<br><br>

What's the problem? Apple did it, so it must be right!<br><br><img src=http://www.tvacres.com/images/koolaid5b.jpg>

It's not mission critical. I had a welcome image that was centered vertically... so much for that, I guess.<br><br>

Nah, no interest. Like I said, it's nothing important. Just an observation.<br><br>

You are correct that its a bug, though. Looking at the W3C documentation, they did break how it's *supposed* to work:<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Length: The value (%Length; in the DTD) may be either a %Pixel; or a percentage of the available horizontal or vertical space. Thus, the value "50%" means half of the available space.<p><hr></blockquote><p>So 100% like you had *should* take up 100% of the available vertical space.<br><br>Heh, maybe Apple stole some FF code.<br><br>

Good ol' IE still displays it properly. But it's weird how all new browsers won't do it. I'm here on my PC at work, and neither IE6 nor FF show it correctly. Maybe if I start using Opera.... NAH!!!!! Bwah ha!<br><br>
