Description Ike Hecht 2009-07-29 14:30:41 UTC
I have a multiple-value field which results in many checkboxes displayed on the form page. In FF3, these are displayed very nicely with wrapping in between the label and the next checkbox where it should be. However, in IE8, these values are displayed on one line, with no text wrapping.

I tracked the issue down to this code in main.css:

/* this makes sure that in long lists with checkboxes the checkbox and the
corresponding label are not torn apart by a line break */
span.checkboxSpan {
	white-space: nowrap;

This code is having the intended effect in FF but not in IE. I spent some time playing with the CSS but was unable to resolve this.

This should be fixed in SF 1.8.5.
Comment 2 Ike Hecht 2010-01-03 02:52:10 UTC
I think I once checked this and found it working, but I recently found myself using IE8 again and exeperienced the same issue. See:
Comment 3 Yaron Koren 2010-01-08 18:00:00 UTC
I always forget to test with IE! This is fixed now in version 1.8.7, I hope.
