Taking my own advice, I’ve updated my “crappy browser” messages to include Internet Explorer 5.5. IE 5.5 is now 5 years old (1999), and it’s time to encourage more and more people to move up. Since IE6 supports the correct CSS box model (in “almost standards” mode), I’m not going to bother with the CSS […]
Haiku Does anyone here know what “Haiku” is (…and no, I’m not talking about a 17 syllable Japanese poem)? Haiku is the brand-new name for an open source project that was formerly called “OpenBeOS”. How many here know what OpenBeOS is? OpenBeOS is a project whose goal is to re-create, from scratch, an open source […]

Dave Shea recently asked, Support the standards and nothing but the standards, regardless of whether or not browsers get them right? – or – Support what standards are available given today’s browser support, and kludge together markup/script/CSS hacks to overcome deficiencies in implementations? I am all-for the extensive use of web standards. Anyone who’s talked […]
Internet Explorer Sucks Most real web designers already know this. Most who don’t are generally either amateurs or are way, way behind the times.
