Severely broken in some Internet Explorer[edit]

This template does not work in some versions of Internet Explorer, definitely quirky in IE6. Where text is wrapped in this template it then renders the text at the top left of the page, rather than in situ. Billinghurst (talk) 01:01, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

The problem, granted only at a glance, seemed to be an incompatibility with the part that converts links in the page namespace to article links in the main namespace upon transclusion -- not so much the z-index solution to the dotted line rows thing. I think that auto-link conversion thingy was behind another problem or two but I can't seem to find it right now. I recall it is coded to something along the lines of a span style of "align:right" (invalid) rather than "float" or "text-align right" and that (for some reason) botches the transclusion via unintended inheriting of paramaters or styles (or something just as obscure). — George Orwell III (talk) 01:32, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
http://netrenderer.com seems to show no problems when I load a TOC page that uses this template. Perhaps the problem is now fixed? --Eliyak T·C 20:04, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Layout 1 is somewhat different now but the entire table is still off by one from left compared to the page column on the right. Layout 2 still looks like a mess (Layout 3 is a mess by nature so don't look to that). Netrenderer isn't (typically) the same as a logged in account -- usually folks have at least some specialization or tweaks in their preferences in other words. I find if you get something, such as this template, "right" without being logged in, it's no guarantee the same will hold true when you are logged in. -- George Orwell III (talk) 21:58, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Help needed: Dotted Page Listing / Bottom dotend text problem[edit]

Hello! On this page: Page:The Development of Navies During the Last Half-Century.djvu/17 I added dotend text without a problem to all chapters but not the one that was Bottom (on top of page). The dotend text looks identical to me in all cases. Please help/ Tar-ba-gan (talk) 12:18, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for mending it AuFCL! Tar-ba-gan (talk) 12:27, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
