Things that suck about coding CSS

Floats

Clearing floats

Aligning floats

why do I even need a float for this?

wait, you mean a float in this element actually modifies an adjacant element? what?

Errors

Is it the margins? Is it positioning? Is it actually the other element? Did you remember to hit 'save'?

Spending an hour tearing your hair out only to discover you forgot a closing brace halfway through the stylesheet.

If you have to ask for help, make sure you have EVERYTHING standards-compliant first, or the people in #css will be big ole meanies.

New node

Every browser is a special snowflake

Don't forget to test in IE6, IE7, FF2, FF3, Safari, in XP, MacOS, and Linux...look, a monkey

Firefox

Don't look all innocent, Firefox.

The opacity tomfoolery, for one

Internet Explorer

Because only geeks and developers actually use Firefox.

Heights, they're just b0rked

The box model. Enough said.

Thank god for the underscore hack...I mean, the asterik hack...I really wish they wouldn't bother fixing these bugs...

Opera

It's fully compliant! Isn't that exciting! Nobody uses it though!

Except Wii and mobile browsers, which means you have to test for it anyway!

Alignment

Power! Complete power!

And complete power is useless if you don't completely grasp inline elements, block elements, z-indexes, positioning floats, and a great recipe for a martini

Drunk! with.. power!

Why does this need a workaround?

Equal height columns
