Re: Netscape 4.8 users must hate the web by now!
an image is not interpreted at all, but you will see the text of the
alt-attribute.. download lynx once, and start surfin. I suggest you
start learning something new, go here for a start:
because it takes the structure of a site. if you are designing according
to the W3C specs of XHTML/CSS you have separated structure from design.
A text-only UA will then only show you the document structure, which
contains, of course, the documents content.
give IBMs Homep Page Reader 3.0 a try:
see above. It's specially designed for visually impaired people.
Hmm I suggest you do a bit research about accessibilty. The structure of
the document implies the tone of the voice of the reading. <h1> is read
differently (by another voice) than a <p> section of your document.
no. because NN4.x has not properly implemented CSS rendering
capabilities. So forget about NN4.x and CSS. just don't feed NN4.x with
CSS. use the @import() to import your style sheets, as old browsers will
not read this.
right. people still using NN4.x have their reason why they are still
- they might not be interested in fancy designs: so structure is okay
- they might sit on a very low bandwidth line: so structure is better
for them (as it doesn't consume a lot of bandwidth)
- they might love to stick to old things: so fancy design will anyway
turn them away
it's simply not about upgrading.. when will people realise, that
webdesing has fundamentally changed in the last couple of years?
Webdesign is not just building a nicely layed-out page with cool colors.
It's about accessing the content of a document.
And if you follow the specs and standards you will be able to create a
site in 2005 which can be accessed by a UA that was developped in 1996
AND a UA which will be developped in 2005...
I do agree, that for some of us this is a tough thing, as everyone is
focused on pixel accuracy and table layout. But it's not what users are
asking for... they want the content (you will never get the content, if
you are still using tables for your layout).
