Up to par

Back in June, the new design of the FRS website went online. I spent a couple of weeks on it. Didn’t make many changes, just the structure of the pages (went from tables to divs and css), and a little of the looks. As much progress to standards that the new design was, there was still much work to be done. I had a problem getting the right styles to the right browser and the only way I originally thought of doing it was through a javascript sniffer. Yes, I know you shouldn’t do that, but I wanted to have something up by June.

A couple of weeks ago I came up with the second release of the site. I removed the javascript sniffer in favor of another devil: css hacks. At least css hacks are a little more elegant. Except the only problem was that I still couldn’t get all the browsers to play nice. IE sucks!

The current release of the website therefore looks different depending on the browser you visit with. If its a decent browser that plays nice with the rules, than you’ll likely see a decent page. IE 5, 5.5 and 6 is similar, except for a few color differences. IE 4 loses the tabs, but you can still navigate. Netscape 4, IE 3, or older browsers, I’m not promising anything, though it should degrade nicely, at least for those browsers that don’t understand css or have problems with <img> inside <object>.
