Netscape users

I hadn't realized how bad my blog looks in Netscape until I looked at it a few weeks ago, in Netscape Communicator 4.7 for the Mac.

Man, did it look awful! I decided that I wasn't going to worry about fixing it, though. If Nav was more standards-compliant for CSS, this site would look great. but I'm using the default (well, slightly modified) layout for Movable Type, and it doesn't use tables for layout.

If I get a lot of complaints (only one so far), then I may reconsider and go to tables. But for now, I'm sticking with CSS. Tables aren't SUPPOSED to be used for layout. (though most of my site the REST of my site uses them)

I used to be a loyal Netscape user. IE sucked! It was the tool of the devil, the Evil That Is Microsoft!

Then they came out with IE 5 for Mac. And it was beautiful. And then Netscape 6 was released. And it sucked. I resisted, mightily, but finally caved. And now that I'm using OSX, it's either IE 5 or Netscape 6. Well, THAT is an easy choice.

Yes, I know I can use iCab, or Opera, or even OmniWeb. I'll stick with what I know. And what is free.

I know what you mean. I use to live and breathe Netscape. Then weird stuff started happening, and it started crashing a lot, and IE 5.5 started looking better and better.

Reminds me though, I haven't been checking my websites in Netscape lately.

I saw the printouts of the ATF site that Rich had taken to the first game, and I was like - wow, that font is HUGE!

But it's why I love CSS. I simply changed it in one place, and the whaa-laa, the whole site was changed!

And if you ever need someone to bang on your sites with a Mac, let me know.

I have a small javascript that's supposed to make the stylesheets work better in NS4.7, but I haven't tried it out yet. I'm having enough troubles crossing the Mac/Windows barrier.

Oh, by the way, Meera, the site looked fine today on the Mac at work. Meant to tell you that. Hopefully, you'll come back here and look at the comments, otherwise I'll catch you elsewhere.

Oh, good.

Apparently, the Macintosh will accept absolute pixel width rather than dueling percentages.

I can handle that. [grin]

Thanks a TON for your assistance! Now I'll have to modify the rest of my pages...
