Tag cloud does not contain spaces when using IE8. This means the readability of the cloud is almost zero... Trac 0.12, tags plugin 0.6

Replying to anonymous:

Tag cloud does not contain spaces when using IE8.

What browsers have you tested with that the cloud does contain the appropriate spaces?

I believe the submitter was referring to IE's lack of support for the ":after" CSS syntax. This prevents the ", " from being inserted between tags, and all of the tag names on the tag cloud view end up running together.

I worked around this by adding the following to the CSS file that contains my local style modifications:

/* Fix the 'tags' page so that the tags
 * don't run into each other in an unreadable
 * way.  Needed until IE learns how to interpret
 * the 'li:after' CSS syntax.
.tagcloud li { margin: 4px; }

This adds a bit of space around each tag, preventing them from running together. It doesn't look as clean as it does in Firefox (where ":after" is supported), but it's certainly better than nothing.

This was tested in IE8 and Firefox 3.6.13.

Thanks, but actually this has been reported several times before and has been fixed differently in [7380] for trunk (see #4223).
