I *really* hate that non-compliant piece of shite. We've *finally* got something approaching a decent layout/design language in the combination of HTML/CSS2 and the bloody thing randomly ignores half of the instructions.

As such I've had to implement an IP5 action (the close equivalence of an LJ tag) to say
"If this is IE, add the string provided to the HTML. It'll completely fuck any chance of the code being standard compliant, but hey, Bill Knows Best".

Not that Moz is perfect either, but it's a hell of a lot better.

Nev: IMAGES! Then we can launch this bloody thing.

Yes, I'm tense today. Why do you ask?

if I kiss your angry frog icon, does it turn into a happy wechsler-prince?

Haven't heard back from the photographer yet :(
I will talk to Daevid about the old website pics, and what newer ones he wants up there.
And don't know if i'll be at the KSR tonight, i have a job interview later.
Will be about in Cam on Saturday afternoon shopping though...

I share an office with a guy who's writing a browser, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that people don't want a properly compliant browser. They want a does-the-same-thing-as-IE browser. Idiots.

I used to work on Fresco, the browser used in Pace's RISC-OS based web TVs and suchlike. We had exactly the same issues.
