I have just checked the TRANZIT JIM website with IE, and the links no longer put a dotted border around a hovered link.
The bolding effect however shall remain.
----------- The issue with Scripts ---------------
As for the issue of the Scripts,
CPU of the Server, compared to the CPU of the Browsers computer.
My concern is not so much the time it takes for the person to get the page showing on their computer.
It is more that, the Server can only handle a certain quantity of requests at any one time, and when a website is busy, the time it takes for the Server to deal with each request, would affect how long it takes for not just that page, but for all other pages following that also.
A slower Browser CPU, means slower for only that one customer, whereas a slower CPU on the Browser means slower time for all customers.
--------- Styles of things ----------
I will always maintain the following
+Background to be the darkest, less than 25% for each of the colors
+Borders to be around 50%
+Foregrounds to always be more than 75%, but always try and have one of the three colors at 100%.
Having White on Black, rather than the more traditional Black on White, or Black on grey, is far better to my eyes, as I am not staring right into a light bulb making me blind. This feature shall always remain.
Todays review of some of my stylesheets, has seen the above rule apply to places of where it was rather slack on those rules, as I did not take care about using these rules back when I created these CSS files.
To me, CSS is a great little thing for 'streamlining' features in a page, like having a particular background, foreground, border, font issues and etc with headings, and other areas.
CSS also makes it very easy to change the style of elements in the page, should I think that Green looks bad, but blue should look good, it is very quick and easy for me to just try out the new color, and change it back if need be.
