A Slap on the Wrist

Volume 6, Issue 27; 02 Jun 2003

You're supposed to use standards, darn it!

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Martin Kenny pointed out this morning that NWN looks pretty crappy in IE and Opera (though he chose somewhat gentler words).

IE I'm willing to accept; in IE, I'm content if it's legible. But Opera is another story, they have a reputation for good CSS support.

The answer: mea culpa. Martin noticed that I was using a non-standard way to refer to external CSS stylesheets, with a bogus src attribute on the style element. My bad.

It's fixed now, and things have been rebuilt. So, Opera users, you should be much relieved next time your eyes wander over these pixels.

IE users, well, I don't know what to say. Maybe this helped. Maybe it didn't. Next time I boot a machine where I can run IE, I'll take a look.
