Good, the Bad, and the Standard
There is some dissension in the ranks! Should standards pioneering websites not be recognized just because everyone has seen them? Aren’t some of the people you are trying to reach the ones who don’t use standards? They may be unaware still of what possibilities lie before them. Shouldn’t we put our collective good foot forward? The debate continues (scroll down a bit) in the comments at The Web Standards Awards under the shadow of a well deserved winner, Todd Dominey’s Whatdoiknow.org.
While on the standards tip, I fixed (and by fixed I mean reduced breakage) of my site in Mac IE 5 at a resolution of 800 x 600 or less, which Mr. Meyer mentions here. Now it only starts to overlap once you are on the short side of about 680 pixels wide or so. On the plus side, I also fixed (and by fixed, I mean fixed) the Windows IE problem which prevented the lovely background water stain on the right-hand side of the site from displaying. Inexplicably, removing the comments from my markup solved the problem. You might ask yourself, why did that work? Well, I don’t have a clue why that worked, maybe you can answer that question for me. If you do, you win a candy bar of your choice (under $2). Don’t pick anything lame either, like something with coconut. God says only rapists and pedophiles eat coconut. You aren’t disagreeing with God, are you? Well?!
