http://qwiki.4ju.eu/ Using this URL works fine for me,
no thick border or whatsoever. In remote desktop connection the problem can be the settings, since RDC usually disables features (lower colordepth etc.).
Does the url work at your desktop, or does it show the strange borders as well?
It only occurs to IE7 and IE8.
Safari, Opera, Chrome and Firefox are all good.
I've tried with all the possible settings for the RDC e.g all checked, all not checked etc.
On the resize problem I think it has to do with the way IE renders things under remote desktop i.e. maybe alpha transparency is not supported therefore the whole window goes white.
Can't say why the thick borders & weird shadow appear though.
It must be your machine or it's settings..
Because when I connect using RDC (windows 7 to windows 7)
and run IE8 on my Windows 7 @ home (to which i have connected from school)
it works fine.. So my guess is that your RDC (apparently) doesn't support, as you
say, some css properties. Have you tried changing your RDC settings:
Experience tab -> Connection: High-Speed(or more)
allow, visual styles, persistent bitmap caching and stuff..
Display tab: Colors Highest Quality..
Maybe this solves the problem, but i'm not sure
You might consider talking to the server admin about it? I've seen some appservers
