Description Timwi 2011-06-02 20:34:04 UTC
I tried to create a multicolored horizontal bar by using 'display: inline-block' on several consecutive DIV elements, for example:

<div style='background: red; width: 80px; height: 0.7em; display: inline-block;'></div><div style='background: green; width: 160px; height: 0.7em; display: inline-block;'></div>

Unfortunately MediaWiki renders this into HTML by adding a newline between the two tags, which the browser of course renders as a space, and thus the two bars have a gap between them.

The same happens for other block-level elements, for example HR.

Expected behaviour is to have no such newline between the tags.

MediaWiki is fine, Tidy is screwing things up. (Unfortunatly that means its unlikely to be fixed in the near future). In the mean time you'll have to use some other method, probably could be done using relative/absolute positioning.
