National Science Foundation installed v.2.3.1 of the Simile Timeline on the nsf.gov website in 2009. The timeline can be viewed at http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/history-nsf/timeline/index.jsp. At that time, there were no browser compatibility issues. We are now having layout issues with the timeline in IE8 and IE9, but not with Firefox, Safari and Chrome.
The IE 9 developer toolbar was deployed to checkhttp://code.google.com/p/simile-widgets/issues/detail?id=428 that the layout issue can be rectified by changing “className” to “class” in timeline-bundle.js in the simile-widgets exhibits. This change was carried out, but did not fix the layout. Then a global change was carried out but this too did not fix the layout. Then, the nsfhistory.js file was examined but the layout problem persisted.
Would you have any suggestion what we could do to rectify the layout problem with the Simile timeline in IE8 and IE9? If it can be fixed, then we’ll be able to keep the timeline on the nsf.gov website.
