[NH] Re: New NoteTab site
- Hi Eric,
I do have the bottom scrollbar on various sites from time to time, but
I remember it from MSIE as well and can't say if it is much
more often. Your page also renders in Mozilla 1.2.1 the same as
Phoenix but not in Netscape 6. The text just seems to be bigger,
especially the text in the beige box, but all the letters in general
just seem to be a little larger, enough to make that kind of
difference when added together. The display areas on all the browsers
seems to be the same, at least from right to left. I only have
this occur on the
http://www.fookes.com/order.php page, on
http://www.fookes.com/buydirect.php it all goes back to fitting on one
Also, only on http://www.fookes.com/order.php, at the bottom, the
phrase "Windows is a" is positioned all the way to the right,
followed by a break, then "trademark of Microsoft Corporation
registered..." is all positioned normally.

- All I'll say is that these sites again assume that we all have 800 by 600 or greater
screen resolutions. I keep to 640 by 480 (pictures larger, icons bigger, better for web
page construction) and because the sizes of such websites are numerical and fixed
instead of percentages I have to scroll side to side. Obviously such websites are
visited less because they cannot be read without side to side actions.
- Hello Eric!
I just looked at your "new and improved" web pages (Internet Explorer -- IE
5). The pages look great. I will try looking at them with Netscape later (it's
on my other computer). I will test all the links on my other machine, too.
You are doing a fine job. Keep up the good work!
