What’s to reset?

There’s been a lot of talk dedicated to use of reset styles. Personally I don’t get it. While I do find myself “resetting” some styles on some elements on every site I make, I don’t understand the use of a…

Fun IE “Layers” Positioning

I’ve been working on some suckerfish dropdown menus at work and it’s been quite an experience. It’s not because they are hard to set up, or it was my first time working with them, but rather because I was trying…

Over the weekend, Nintendo released the Internet Channel for the Wii. I’ve been playing around with it a little - whenever my netopia router wants to let the wii connect to it. While this isn’t the first time you…

One More IE “Problem”

There is not a week that goes by that I don’t find something new that is irritating with IE. It’s almost as if the program was begging to be made into a repeating column. Not that I would, but it’s…

He’s a phoney! A Great Big Phoney!

Why won’t it work?!

Simple classes

I’ve recently have been getting interesting in javascripting. It’s weird because I always thought that javascript was bad because not everyone has it enabled in their browsers. Or something to that line. But javascript can do lots of cool little…

The problem of text on the web

Since I started trying to develop and design websites using standards and CSS, I’ve had a problem with font sizes. Actually, to be truthful, I only noticed it when I started developing for multiple patforms. In previous 3.x versions of…

New Category for IE Features
