# Do Not Use Inline-block in CSS (Obsolete)

UPDATE: As Vensires mentions in the comment, this post is obsolete.

Usually, when we want to arrange some blocks horizontally with CSS, we may choose to use float: left; property, or display: inline-block; alternatively.

According to http://www.quirksmode.org/css/display.html, inline-block is not supported by IE 5.5 and it’s not completely supported by IE 6 and IE 7.

So, don’t use display: inline-block;, it will mess up your page on some browsers. Use float: left; instead.

Here is an example:

Update: Don’t forget to use clear:both; with float:left;.
