TK Maxx website rebranding

After

Website redesign for TK Maxx. Launched just yesterday.
Venda coding all the way in the back end and HTML, JavaScript and CSS in the front end.

What I’ve learnt

The biggest challenge was to make the site work in Internet Explorer 6 and 7. One particularly annoying issue was to make the logo stay on top of the sliding main homepage image. All other browsers were just fine but in IE6 and 7 the logo was hidden behind the image.

The trick was simple yet not obvious. <div> containing the logo needs not only its z-index set to a higher value than sliding image, but also we have to make sure IE treats it seriously and make our CSS rule important.

#logo { z-index: 1000; }

Above will not work whereas below will work like a charm.

#logo { z-index: 1000 !important; }
