Fixed Broken Layout in IE
You need friendly negative criticism.
Especially when you have a cred-neg
site malfunction or mis-rendering.
The best ally of a blogger is
a blog reader who tells you what's wrong
with your blog, your ideas, your tone.
If necessary, this benevolent reader
will use harsh or sarcastic language,
to shake you up and out of your lethargy,
your misconception, your failed execution.
A reader of my blogs alerted me to a problem.
I had a cataclysmic usability error:
sites not rendering correctly
on IE, while rendering perfectly on
Mozilla Firefox browser.
Large sidebar images were
breaking layout rendering in IE.
A good friend alerted me.
"You do know...[etc.]...don't you?"
I was able to recover an error-ridden
blog mess, a blog supposed to teach
and display best blogging practices.
And here it is, violating Rule #1:
download fast with correct rendering.
Usability Rule #2:
(professional, artistic, academic,
scientific, scholarly, entertaining,
authoritative, innovative, etc.
depending on purpose and readership).
Firefox vs. Internet Explorer (IE)
Firefox is almost nearly always
near-lightning fast in most cases,
even on dialup internet connections.
pros and cons in
carries more credibility
than proper business writing
--in the online realm--.
