Text rollover problem?Edit

The 'roll-over' text for the landers has broken - can't figure out why though, it all looks fine... sbandrews (t) 18:48, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Mars template display problem?Edit

@Huntster and other editors: Recent discussion copied below seems relevant to this talk page - esp since the template display problem may be somewhat unresolved and ongoing at the moment - Comments and/or Experiences from editors welcome - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 12:25, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Re: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Features_and_artificial_objects_on_Mars&diff=746448856&oldid=746414812, what browser are you using? I'm on Firefox v.46 and when I made that edit all alignments were precisely (I literally measured pixel by pixel) on the borders of the images. I wonder if our templates render differently in different browsers? That would be bad... Huntster (t @ c) 14:12, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

@Huntster: Thanks for your comments - yes - Browser type may be a concern - I usually use the latest version of Chrome on my dell wintel-xp & hp laptop wintel-xp (presently, Chrome-v49.0.2623.112 m; Firefox-v50.0b9; MSIE-v8.0.6001,18702 are installed on both) & dell wintel-10 pcs - the dell wintel-xp (& hp laptop wintel-xp) Chrome browser & MSIE browser seem *completely ok* with all alignments at the moment with the present configurations - however - on my dell wintel-xp Firefox browser, *only* the label on "Curiosity" seems misaligned: ie, overlaps the icon ~1-2px; all other labels seem *completely ok* on the Firefox browser - on my Toshiba tablet (android/v4.0.4-latest), three labels ("Viking-1" & "Schiaparelli" & "Curiosity") are misaligned: ie, all leave small 1-2px spaces left of the icons - hope this helps in some way - may try some of my other browsers/pcs later - Thanks again for your comments - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 14:55, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
@Huntster: UPDATE - similar results as above with the present configurations with all Browsers using my very latest pc (Dell xps 8900 desktop Intel core i7 - model x89002506blk; Windows 10 64-bit) with Chrome v53.0.2785.101 m (64-bit) & MSEdge v25.10586.0.0/MSEdgeHTML v13.10586 & Firefox v49.0.2 browsers installed - all labels are *completely ok* with the Chrome & MS browsers but there is one misaligned label with the Firefox browser ("Curiosity" label overlaps icon by 1-2px) - all other labels seem "completely ok" (ie, no other overlaps/no significant spaces) with the Firefox browser - hope this helps - iac - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 15:59, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
@Huntster:   Done - Possible Compromise Solution => "Curiosity" label - adj "left" to 407px (from 410px) - all alignments on the "Mars surface template" now seem sufficiently ok w/ Chrome v53, MSEdge v25/v13 and Firefox v49 browsers - iac - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 17:48, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
Welp, it's still all weird on my screen, but you know I appreciate your efforts to fix things. These display errors are very odd. Ah well. Huntster (t @ c) 01:34, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

FWIW - Besides "browser type", other variables affecting label alignment in the template *may* be the following => "monitor type", "OS type", "screen size", "screen resolution" and "video card type" - iac - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 12:48, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Schiaparelli is East of Opportunity, not West?Edit

I think the map has the wrong position for Schiaparelli relative to Opportunity. If I am not mistaken, Schiaparelli is East of Opportunity, but the map shows it to the West. Could someone check and correct this, if it is the case? Tony Mach (talk) 09:42, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
