Question for all

OK, two questions...

First, everyone stick your hand up who uses a browser other than Internet Exploder as your primary web browser.

Second, do you think that there are enough of you out there in the general population for me to invest the time in reworking this site so that it looks "like it's supposed to" in browsers-other-than-IE...? I'm converting it to CSS, so now is probably the time.



ETA: I went ahead and did the fixing on all of the top-level pages. A perfectionist, once made aware of imperfaction, cannot rest.

Not sure how it's 'supposed' to look. . .
but I don't see anything odd in the way the latest version of Safari is rendering it. Ditto the latest verison of Firefox (on OS X, anyway).

Re: Not sure how it's 'supposed' to look. . .
If you look at the 'fixed' projects page and compare it to one of the 'un-fixed' sub-pages (like this one) you'll see a difference in how the left-hand navigation buttons are rendered. At least, you do on Firefox on Winders.

As an aside, now that I've converted the balance of the site to CSS a little misrendering (due to Firefox not liking an in-line style that IE liked) is cleared up, but it now looks like Hell to anyone who's still on Netscrape 4.x. At some point you just have to tell the deep legacy users to suck it up. At least Exploder 5.x understands CSS.

Looks fine in Flock-a pretty nifty browser if you haven't seen it before- and Safari on OS X 10.3.9. Didn't fire up the 'fox since majikshop covered that.

LOL about the legacy users; I am still trying to pry my beloved "Don't ask me to change it- it works and I hate changing anything on the computer that works" mother off Netscrape 4.x. Jeez, I haven't even been able to move her to OS X yet-I think it's revenge for some childhood slight of mine...

Uh huh. ashacat and I pried her Mom off of Word for Windows 2.0 with a prybar a couple of years ago. Actually, we did it the mean way: we gave her a new (used) PC with Office 97 on it. Then Ashacat gave her mom a crash course in the pinnacle of late-nineties word processing. :-)

I'm using Firefox, and it looks fine to me.

My perfectionism won out over my intertia, and I fixed all of the top-level pages. If you look at my reply to Majikshop you'll see what the glitch was. Thanks for looking at it!
