|Subject||[greenstone-users] Greenstone in Google Chrome and Apple Safari browsers|
Does anyone know why the default installation of Greenstone 2.83 doesn't work in Google Chrome and Apple Safari web browsers on Windows XP/7? When I look at my local library in either of these browsers, they don't use the external stylesheets (style.css, print-style.css).
After hours and hours of trying to figure out the issue, I think we narrowed it down to the installed Apache server (on Windows) failing to serve out the CSS files with the proper mime type. Unfortunately, I can't figure out why it's doing that, as the mime.types file in Apache's sub-folders is configured correctly (as far as my novice eyes can tell). When I install Greenstone 2.83 on my Macbook, Safari and Chrome have no issues displaying the page.
I also considered that it could have something to do with the file's encoding. On my Mac, the files are encoded as UTF-8, but on Windows, they're CP1252. I'm not experienced enough in mime-types and file encodings to know if this is part of the issue.
Has anyone else determined a fix for this issue?
