Interesting Things

  • Another IE6 issue: CSS selectors. A div can have multiple classes, such as <div class="grey box"></div>, and there are multiple CSS selectors for this, only one of which works with IE6:
/* Works fine with IE6 */
.grey .box {
    border: 1px solid black;

/* DOES NOT WORK with IE6 */ { /* Note the lack of space! */
    border: 1px solid black;
  • In Rails, It is possible to declare a “white list” and a “black list” of attributes that can be mass-assigned in an ActiveRecord model: Note that these cannot both be used in the same class!
    • attr_accessible (white list) – only attributes in this list can be mass-assigned.
    • attr_protected (black list) – as long as an attribute is not in this list, it can be mass-assigned.
  • Rspec redirect assertions now work! Use this in your controller specs:
response.should redirect_to(:controller => "my_controller", :action => :an_action)

Ask for Help

  • Has anyone had problems with IE6 failing to send Ajax requests?
