Error description

  • While entering long negative numbers into TM1 Web?those numbers
    wrap, while in internet explorer.?So a number
    ?"-1234567890"?will display as ?"-?1234560"?And since it
    occupies two rows it will not be visible to the users.?This
    works fine in other browser (Firefox or Chrome)??Is this issue
    only an IE problem or rather TM1Web not adhering to some HTML
    standards???The issue appear to be something specific to how IE
    handles nowrap attribute.? Using firebug I was able to isolate
    that the actual code  holding the value displayed incorrectly,
    and by using it in a sample HTML document with table I was able
    to replicate the behaviour.??Interestingly it occurs with the
    heading of ?<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0
    Transitional//EN">?but not?<!DOCTYPE  html>, (HTML 5)?Also if in
    IE I select no style the page is displayed distorted but the
    actual number is not wrapped.
