Content aligns out of place when zooming


Recommended Posts

When zooming out, the content on the page will not always align with the background as it should. Only Internet Explorer seems to maintain perfect alignment when zooming.Internet Explorer 11:Internet Explorer NormalInternet Explorer ZoomBut when doing this with any other browser, the content aligns out of original position, demonstrated with Firefox 26:Firefox NormalFirefox ZoomThis is a minor issue, as I do not expect anyone to ever zoom out this far. However, I like to respect browser zoom compatibility, and provide support for every zoom level that it provides.I would really just like to figure out what exactly is causing this. Am I using wrong code? Is the font not composed properly?index.html

It may just be the way the browser renders text. Some browser render text bigger/heavier than others and handle scaling of text slightly differently. Set specific px heights on the containers and try zooming again. If it fixes the alignment than it should tell you that it is most likely just the different text rendering.
