about bloody time

There is a first cut of the book’s web page up “here.”:http://www.thewormbook.com I await comments with resignation. If you’re still using Netscape 4.7, it will probably look even worse. I suggest you “upgrade(to Lynx — it’s smaller and more powerful)”:lynx.browser.org to something more useful.

    Site looks fine here, under XP and IE6.

    So, er, um… why were there no pix of the charming beast?

    ya gotta move the mouse just right to find it.

    Nice content, but…

    I’m not overly fond of the colors, (a), and (2) I’m not overly fond of the design style where an incautious twitch that moves the mouse changes the content you’re reading into something else.

    Mm. My mouse has worms.

    I was really wondering about the wormlessness of the book itself… (which I still haven’t seen).

    Oh, his *friends* don’t get to see the book. Only the reviewers.

    But you really do have to do a vast sweep to get to the “Andrew Brown” bit at the bottom without setting off a block of text to cover it up. Really do not like that style of displaying text.

    what size screen are you looking at it in? What browser? On my screen, in either opera 7 or IE6, the “Andrew Brown” thing is never obscured by the shifting text, and can’t be, becasue tht always has a left edge 300px from the edge of the screen. But I do no browser sniffing, and nothing fancy if people turn up wearing Netscape 4.x.

    So the layout is simpkly a css version of the framed layout I used for the Darwin Wars site, with a fixed menu down one side and a shifting bit next to it.

    Mozilla, of course. And 17in, 1024×768. Can’t you *tell*?


  7. Andrew says:

    Oh yes. I see that Mozilla has a broken way of handling the css. The menu div down the side wraps in all other browsers so that there’s no trouble reading anythig in that column. I shall see if I can fiddle it to wor in Mozilla. But it isn’t my fault.

  8. Andrew says:

    OK. fixed now. There was a space between “225” and “px” in the style sheet. Only Mozilla made a fuss.
