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).

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
