Whitehouse.gov Analysis

A few notes on the new whitehouse.gov website as I did for the campaign sites after about 5 minutes of sniffing around: Running Microsoft-IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET 2.0.50727. The Bush administration ran Apache on what I think was some sort of Unix. Data is gzip’d. Whitehouse.gov is using Akamai as a CDN and for DNS […]

Firefox Myths?

Someone looking for their 5 minutes of fame (obviously not worth 15 minutes) decided to post some Firefox Myths. It’s an interesting read, though has a few oddball statements, that really don’t make sense. “Firefox has lower System Requirements than Internet Explorer” The author omits that the “system requirements” don’t make the product usable. It’s […]

XHTML FAQ

A grreat FAQ on XHTML is available, and I encourage all fellow web developers to read up. I found a few interesting things: First read this: strong>Why is it allowed to send XHTML 1.0 documents as text/html?

Mozilla 1.5 Out / Website

Mozilla 1.5 is out! IMHO a great release. Rock solid. Firebird 0.7 is also out. I’ve got to bring up a few things about what will be the new Mozilla.org website soon. Why is this being done in XHTML? Why loose that portion of an audience, that is potentially going to switch? The easiest group […]

Were going to CSS, HTML or XHTML

Ok, I’ve gottin quite a few emails, and a few comments on this. I’m going to turn the site a bit more CSS savvy, hence degrading the “experience” a bit more in older browsers. Mainly Netscape 4. Why? Because the page size is to big. I won’t do away with tables 100%. But will greatly […]

Porting to XHTML

I’m strongly thinking about porting this blog back into XHTML (same design, new code). Granted I loose you “older browser” fellows. So my questions are as follows: 1. To go Xhtml or not? 2. If stay with HTML 4.01… how to make the page smaller, keep it valid, and retain all contents and formatting. 3. […]
