Just was playing around with another little layout, nothing special.
I just find that doing these helps me learn css better in general.

Not necessarily concerned with the visual aspect (although if you like it, tell me Laughing out loud ), but am wondering if anyone can spot any obvious flaws in it.

Thanks!

Heres the site, and direct link to css :

Edit: Has been tested by me with IE 6 and Netscape 7.1

New layout.. css fun

Hi compmatt,
Looks fine in Opera 6 and 7.22.
In Netscape 4 most of the content is missing, you could try using @import to hide your CSS from Netscape 4.

Hope that helps

New layout.. css fun

I just installed opera.

My pages seem to work ok except for my main templeofdagon.com page.

Just installed netscape 4.78 too.

Trying not to go into a fit Tongue

It's a catch-22... supposed to make pages work well even in netscape 4.x since many people use it... and are supposed to use css for layouts since its proper, but (since it has to be worked around for netscape 4) it will never ever look right.

Unless tables are used.

*runs around the room screaming*

Hi compmatt,
Don't try and make the site look right just make the content available.
Content should be the reason why people visit your site not because it looks nice.

Hope that helps.

New layout.. css fun

Not trying to keep this thread open until the near year, but wanted to say something..

I am happy again Smile I have learned to make my css more compatible, started setting up seperate css files for old browsers (using the include method), making sites both look good, and still functional, hiding things they can't handle, etc... and making things look 100% the same in all the browsers I test in (although i agree content is more important but still)

It seems that everytime I am getting a good grasp of something, something else comes along that I need to take into account, which is annoying at first, but eventually comforting when it all comes together.

Just wanted to share, in a happy mood heh
