[WSG] best practice?

2005-04-28 Thread designer
Firstly, let me say that I have been doing standards only since last September, so am very much a novice. I have upgraded 5 or so sites to be XHTML/CSS etc, and got them to validate as STRICT, so I am happy that 'I can do it', as far as it goes. I have learnt quite a lot (in fact, it seems a

Hi Again Georg, Interesting. If I do away with the main grey background, and check the 'smooth scrolling' the problem gets worse! See: http://www.treyarnon.fsworld.co.uk/wg/FFbug2.jpg Also, same code, but using a table instead of a nest of divs is fine - no problem:

[WSG] frames

2005-05-12 Thread designer
Hi All, Can anyone tell me if/when it is 'OK' to use frames? Since the W3C spec still includes them, I wondered (if) when it was considered legit to employ them - on a par with tables, which are avoided at all costs, except when displaying 'tabular data'. So I assume the W3C have included

Surely, the point we are at with Flash is analogous to the early days of the web, when you couldn't even put a picture in your document. You could only have text. As time went on, it became desirable to include 'pictures' and so the web (html) developed a stage further. Putting it at the

Hi Cole, Sounds like you want to train someone in the (not easy) transition to standards by having to do very little. If you can find a way to get them proficient in the basics, have a thorough knowledge of hacks and browser behaviour and be able to produce original designs (sort of like zen
