Recently I’ve been talking about Internet Explorer 6 and how support for it is slowly dropping, and soon we will see it disappear for good, but there are still people that use this browser, whether it by choice or that they are forced to, you have to keep in mind that people will view your site in Internet Explorer 6, but these days it is very hard to get modern CSS 2.1 websites to display 100% in Internet Explorer 6 without hacking your code to hell and back. This small addition to your webpage will display an IE6 specific message to any IE6 user.
Recently I saw a unexpected visitor suddenly appearing on my footer. A unusual guest named smiley, yes really! As I was doing a regular check on browsershots.org to see how my website was displaying in all the main browsers I noticed a random gap after the footer with a small smiley face in the bottom left corner and sure enough I saw it for myself when I checked it out in my internet browser. What was causing the uninivited guest to appear? Read on to find our the cause of this weirdness!
One of the most common attributes in CSS are margin and padding, while there use isn’t that big it certainly helps a website’s content look clean and spaced out. Margins create certain amounts of spacing between almost anything on a webpage and can be used to seperate divs. Padding of course is most commonly used to space out divs, paragraphs and general content so everything isn’t jumbled up and wrap up within each other so it is clear to the reader. In this CSS trick you’ll learn how you can save time by using shorthand with your margins and padding.
So I’ve very nearly finished my first year of Sixth Form, and I’ve done alot of work over the year, but as the 6 weeks holidays approach I looked back on what points I should of been working when in fact I was distracted by various things on my computer or elsewhere, kind of inspired me to create a post on how you could be destroying your work productivity. So take a step back, sit down in that nice comfy chair over there and let Dr James tell you common methods that we are all doing to bring down our work productivity, possibly without even knowing it at all.
Recently YouTube has announced it will be phasing out support for the Internet Explorer 6 Browser, about time! For anyone who is still on this out dated browser (And HAS the choice of upgrading) you really need councilling. I don’t get why some people constantly ignore there Windows Update screen which by now will probably be screaming at them to update. However it looks like the major websites of today are phasing out Internet Explorer 6 support.
