FYI, a little lesson on webbiness, for the newbies.
There`s a governing body which decides the direction of coding html and css. They put out things like guides and standards of practice.
Companies like Mozilla come along, and use those standards to make their web browser.
Companies like Microsoft (and now, Apple) come along and say "you must design something specifically for my browser because I`m so big that I don`t care about standards".
This practice hurts the little guy. Small businesses, like all of SUN, need websites ... and websites are more expensive to develop when you have to write a stylesheet based on standards ... and then rewrite it for Internet Explorer ... and then rewrite again for Safari.
So when you use Internet Explorer and Safari, when you support this attitude, you are saying "I`m a small business and I really like paying more for my web development."
Real change starts with everyone here, the millions of small business owners in this country. Stop with the IE and the Safari. Download Firefox and use it.
I just get a little ill when I read stuff like this article
that talks about developers coding for Safari "if there`s time". The bottom line is this: you shouldn`t have to "code for Safari". Apple and Microsoft should make it easier for the small business owners they claim to care about and start supporting web standards for their browsers.
*steps of soap box now*
Joel, Safari users probably represent less than 1% of the users here.
I`d just tell them to go download Firefox. It`s not worth the development expense on your part. My response would be the same if they told me they are trying to view your site with Internet Explorer 5, IE for Mac, Netscape 4, or whatever else silly thing they want to try.
