Yes, it’s another post about Microsoft and its poor implementation of
Internet Explorer. This time it’s version 8 and its rendering of lists,
and in specific, links within list items. Most humorously, Microsoft’s
own documentation (separate issue; about rounded corners) gave me a
laugh when it said:
“Microsoft is committed to providing a browser that
accurately supports Web standards.”
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve given up waiting for the day that IE actually

So, the issue I found was that with a <ul> with a number of <li>
tags inside wouldn …
Microsoft and IE are insane. Yes, we all knew this, but
here’s the proof:
IE won't accept more than 30 style sheets to be loaded via <style> tags within a single page.

so) the Kupu editor within Plone and hence any styles applied to normal
pages by Deliverance don’t show up. My workaround, as detailed on that
post, is to customise the “emptypageresources” page template and include
a suitable link to the CSS file, like so:
It’s another one of those ‘strange’ problems that has cropped up, but by
default in Plone, users who aren’t authenticated aren’t actually able to
bring up a pop-up calendar on a date field.
It’s amazing that I haven’t run into this issue before with something
like PloneFormGen, where you’d think that a simple Date input field
would be pretty common. Although, I guess it’s the case that even
though I’ve used these given forms, I’ve probably never taken much
notice of the popup calendar icon and just selected a random date …
