You see any problems?
Hi. Just need to see if anyone is having trouble viewing this page: http://www.ace-installer.com/index2.php. Paul is saying that the right menu has some white space there, but from what me and a few mates have seen it is ok now. He was using IE 6, so if someone could confirm this that would be great.

Thanks

The white next to the small dot is gone, the white next to the big dot isn't.

Ok, SHOULD be fixed now. I really do hate having to make it cross browser compatible!

How about cross-system compatible? (including monitor size, screen resolution, operating system, etc.)

Refer to screenshot...with 640X480 screen resolution.

I honestly don't see the point of catering for people with 640*480 anymore.

90% of people who visit Cricket Web are on 800*600 and only 2% visit on 640*480. These stats are the same on nearly all my sites.

I can't believe people could still be using that resolution anywayCrazy. It restricts what you do so much.

We've got 3 out of 17 machines in the office still running on 640*480.

I perfer to work in 640*480, better on the eyes.
About 20% of all my users are using that resolution, so there are a lot still out there believe it or not.
I have a 640*480 site version and a 800*600 version, and I'm working on a 1024*768 version.
As the old saying (or is it a song) goes - Got to keep your customers satisfied -.
Btw looks fine to me to with ie5 and netscape 4.7.

Yep - that's the most common reason I get, too. It's easier to read/see as the font, images and everything else is bigger. Which is understandable...

All my family have reading glasses (except me) but my vision is pretty dodgy sometimes but I find anything less than 1024x768 way to big and "in ya face".....my monitor won't even let me go less than 800x600 with my current drivers.

I can understand people with vision problems using different resolutions but there is no excuse for using browsers from the stoneage Laugh

Hm... I prefer a minimum of 1024 by 768... I like to see everything at once... I hate having to scroll horizontally when I'm working on a program... A lot of built-in Windows functions (alerts, config tools, etc) won't fit/look well on 640 x 480 screens. Although yes, I could take out my contact lenses and probably be able to read those huge fonts from two feet away.

Yeah, I don't really see any point in catering for people with less than 800x600. ALL of my websites are webmaster related, and any decent webmaster can't really work on anything less than 800x600 (just my view on it). Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I'm hoping to have this design up and working by the end of the week Smile

That's a fair point. Always cate for your target audience, but you should also expect the unexpected - nobody expected the spanish inquisition or whatever that quote from monty python was.

Yeah, here is the stats from today so far;

1. 1024 x 768 pixels 23
2. 800 x 600 pixels 14
3. 1152 x 864 pixels 4
4. 1280 x 1024 pixels 4
5. Other Resolutions 2

See, the smaller resolutions are so little in quantity there is no reason even to list 'em ;)

There are lots of excellent webmasters that work and browse at a number of resolutions including 640*480 and even webtv, which is 300*200 I think on a daily bacis.
I say if they carn't handle those resolutions, then there no very good webmasters.

You have to be realistic. There is no way you can get a site to look right in 300x200 as well as 1024x768

Yeah, I think a lot of us are guilty of leaving out WebTV users from our design specs. The WebTV boxes are so limited, I bet none of my websites conform to their standards yet every month I see an increase in hits from 'em.

And it's one of those areas that will just keep increasing as entertainment consoles and TVs in general become more internet friendly.

The problem is, if you are designing for such small resolutions, then there is the problem of having to have duplicates to suite every type of screen resolution! Quite honesty mine looks ok in anything from 800x600 and higher, so I'm not too worried Wink
