Re: [WSG] SEO vs. Accessibility

2009-05-26 Thread Tijmen Smit
I wouldn't worry about it. Search engines are smart enough to see the
difference between trying to influence your ranking by spamming keyword etc.
Or just have an item or 2 being placed of screen for accessibility reasons.

 Hello list! I have a quick question for any accessibility and SEO mavens
 out there. It was recently brought to my attention that a few elements I
 have placed on a site that have text indented px to the left for
 accessibility might be viewed as a form of cloaking by some search
 engines. Is my colleague correct in this assessment? If so, is there a
 middle ground that can be met to make search engines and visually
 impaired folks happy?

 Thanks in advance!

 Regards,
 Spell

Re: [WSG] Making an image come right up to a list

2008-07-30 Thread Tijmen Smit
Add this - #mainNav ul {margin:0; padding:0;} to your stylesheet. Also have
a look at css reset -
http://www.search-this.com/2007/03/12/no-margin-for-error/ , that prevents
you from running into stuff like this,

Theres also no such thing as left center; :)

Re: [WSG] line-height compatibility troubles

2008-07-17 Thread Tijmen Smit
This should be a good read about line heights in different browsers -
http://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2008/05/06/line-height-abnormal/ :)

On Thu, Jul 17, 2008 at 11:29 AM, Bas V [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

  Am I correct to notice that there is rather a bit of difference between
 browsers in the spacing between the lines of text?

 My problem:
 I have a box 359 x 359 pixels in which I need to put a set amount of text.
 The text wraps exactly the same in all browsers, only the line height is
 different between some of them.

 The text fits in Internet Explorer 6 and 7 and Opera 9.5 on PC, Firefox 2
 and Safari on Mac, but in Firefox 2 and Internet Explorer 8 on PC it doesn't
 fit and is subsequently cut off.

 I tried applying line-height: 12px; to the div that contains the text, that
 effected the spacing between the lines but that still didn't make it exactly
 the same in all browsers, there was still variation between them.

 The page is XHTML 1.0 Strict (and CSS 2.1) valid, so how is it possible
 that some browsers show more line space, shouldn't it be all the same?

 Your advice please.

http://developer.yahoo.com/yslow/ it should give you more then enough
information on how you can optimize your webpage.
