So Much For Standards


This is a screen shot of a web page running in Internet Explorer 7.

If you create your web page using browser-specific crap, and force people to use a non-standards-compliant-browser to see your content, you cannot trust the maker of non-standards-compliant-browser-x to keep their non-standard crap working.

Which makes your website look foolish in the near future.

This has been a public service announcement.

LOL. I love it.

Funny. This is one of those examples that combines poor management (the decision to go IE only) with bad execution (the bug, which is probably easy to avoid). I'm not a fan of Microsoft's browser lock-in either but I'm willing to bet the fault lies more with the application developer.

I think they are trying to make a statement. They will only run on IE6 or something that is 'greater' than that. Apparently, they haven't found anything more great. ;-)

Or they could just be stupid.
