My first impressions are that I am disappointed, what as changed from the
I expected impressive designs from mf the new ui team co-ordinator.
I think that the frick85 design is more impressive.
The mf page has got some faults with it, which are:
1. The use of points (pt) for the font sizes, this is bad practice, it does
not scale and IE will not enlarge or decrease the font size from the View
Font size menu. So if you have very bad eye sight and your browser is
Internet Explorer, then the page is useless.
2. The colour contrast is very bad in the main navigation bar. It fails the
w3c standard. I recommend the use of ' Colour Contrast Analyser ', there is
a link from one of the W3C's pages, if the following link does not work.
3. There is almost no margin between the left column and the right column,
in Firefox and Opera browsers, but it looks ok in IE though.
4. The select box for language does not scale, this can be remedied with
the use of em for the size. Also Netscape 4.5 will not render it at all
unless it is enclosed within the form element.
I see tables are still used a lot, if divs were used and @import
url(./yourstyle.css); , then browsers like older versions of Netscape would
layout the page with one column, being unable to access the style sheet.
I have found that for font size it is always best to use percentages (%)
and if you want a box, border, or margin to grow with the users choice of
font size, then em should be used.
The above comments are not meant to be destructive, but constructive.
So I apologize in advance if anyone gets offended.
Please view the attached page, which uses the frick85 images (altered).
This page scales well, meets the colour contrast standard and still looks
good enough in Netscape 4.5.
You may not like it, I don't think that it is perfect. I would like to see
the ros atom looking as if it were coming towards you over a carpet of
cloud, like view across the top of the clouds that is seen from the top of
a very high mountain.
