The cursor positioning issue doesn't occur until over roughly 1000 characters. I should have included that detail. Sorry.


Oh. nevermind - I see you discovered that on the other thread.

Ok now I am Compatibility Mode ( Tools -> Compatibility Viewing ) and the scrolling, jumping, focus problem is gone and the glow text shows.  So, everyone with IE8 needs to turn on Compatibility Viewing for this site.  Easiest thing to do.

Ok, that does automatically fix the scrolling, jumping focus problem for IE8 but the Glow text does not work. Going to take that fix out and manually set IE8 to Compatiblity Viewing which this fix causes to grey out.

Ok I have applied the workaround by adding the following:

Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Ok now I am typing and this is working much better.  Let's see if this workaround also lets it show the Glow text:

Ohhh.. If I stick IE8 into Compatibility Viewing, so non-standard stuff that worked only in IE7 will appear ( Tools -> Compatibility View ) then the Glow effect will appear in IE8.

Might try that out for writing posts as well. The cursor still blinks a lot. Don't seem to have any problems writing this though.

Oh I think I actually disabled the Glow tag completely because it was non-standard and only worked in one of the browsers.  When looking at the page source, the tag isn't there.  Do I even remember where I made that change? LOL.

I do notice the cursor in IE8 really blinking a lot. Could be the JavaScript or the smiley animations.  Hmmm..

Hmm.. I have IE8 on here but I rarely use it. I seem to remember from way back that either FF or IE didn't even support the Glow thing. I'll dork around with it.. if you can link to a really bad post that causes the problems that would be cool.

Some Glow text
