IE sux0r big time / Ironies

I'm on day two of my new job as freelance web developer. I'm enjoying the irony of my first assignment: it's a web site for a festival in favor of Ganesh, the elephant-headed god. Outsourced to a Filipino, who just happens to be a Catholic.

I had the look of the site nailed down in Firefox, but thanks to Clair, I found out that it was severely broken in Internet Explorer. Transparent PNGs, apparently, do not render well in IE. And their CSS support is non-standard.

IE sucks big time.

Another ironic twist: I was discussing the hosting requirements with the contractor and when I learned that the server would be in Windows, I panicked. Seriously. Because I don't do Windows anymore.

  1. Yeah, it is quite ironic that you were given such a project *laughs*

    So how did you work around the trouble with IE? My friend Trebs told me that he usually makes the image have a background color similar to the one he's using so he won't have trouble anymore.

    As for the Cowboy Bebop music, I will give you a CD's worth when you get here ;)

    And JM already gave me "Life on the Screen" last night. Interesting book. Will post my thoughts after reading it =)
