Frustrating things about web design #1: Internet Explorer (this generally goes without saying).

Frustrating things about web design #2: realising that the reason that your page doesn't look as it should is because you have spelt colour with a 'u'.

I don't find IE7 too much of a problem to get working, but IE6 is just evil (especially as trying to run both together is a pig).

Hah! I did the same thing this week. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

Frustrating things about web design #3: if you leave a Devil's Kitchen post as 'untitled', you can't read it from your iPhone.

Really? I have spent the last couple of days processing a lot of RSS feeds and I realised that the untitled ones wouldn't show up.

Hmmm, I may end up titling all posts in the future.

Have been redoing Mrs S-E's business site all week. She calls me this morning and asks if I have been working on it (hah!).

Nope - she's using IE rather than Firefox or Safari and, boy, does it look shite (6 & 7).

Back to the CSS book ...

My worksites audience stats tell me 90% IE. So I have to make it work properly in that pig. But my biggest bugbear is pixel measurements in CSS.

If they have a zero value they may be declared as 0, but if the have a positive value they get a measure ie. 1px. The number of times I've changed a value without putting a unit of measurement on the wee fucker

What, only IE ?

I'm just a dedicated end-user with no tech skills at all, but am rapidly coming to the conclusion that ANYTHING designed by Bill Geeks is useless !

Shug,

Try the W3C CSS Validator. It's good at catching mistakes (but crap at pretending it's IE).
