About this Website

Your site looks weird in my browser. What’s up?

This site validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict and uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to render all markup and element positioning, which means you should use a relatively new browser to fully experience the site. Any browser can access the raw text of this site, but if you are using at least Internet Explorer 5 (Mac and Win) or up, in addition to Mozilla, Chimera, and Netscape 6, the site will correctly render as intended. Opera renders the site fine, but the browser has a few bugs and rendering limitations that can cause small issues here and there. Any older browsers like Netscape 4 or betas like iCab and OmniWeb will not fully render the site. If all you see is gray background and blue text, you desperately need to upgrade your browser. As Zeldman would say, to hell with bad browsers.

But aren’t you limiting your audience by using these techniques?

Absolutely not. Contrary to most graphics intensive web sites, the raw textual content of this site is 100% accessible, regardless of browser, platform, or device. Specialized layout styles and visual elements are hidden from non-compliant browsers to make the environment as friendly and condusive to reading as possible. That means all the layout hacks and junk of old, including transparent gif spacers and nested tables, are banished to prepare for the next wave of web design. As more companies like Wired News redesign their online presence using CSS and ridding their sites of antiquated design methods, the less unusual this will seem. All in good time.
