Site stuff

Because some people think my background graphics for my site are BORING, I've revamped it a bit. If you view the site with a Mozilla-based browser (Netscape 6.x or Mozilla are the two biggies), or with IE 5.5 or greater on a Mac, you'll see it exactly as intended. If you use IE for Windows (any version) or Opera (any version), you'll see a slightly wrong version, but still readable.

Is the background boring or is it interesting enough?

Heh. Just another Propaganda image. I wish that archive was still up, so I could link to it. Very cool set of textures that were released into the wild a couple years ago.

The effect is neat on a Mozilla browser, with the partially-transparent look of that DIV and the seamless scrolling. On IE, the background of the DIV doesn't stay still as it's supposed to, and on Opera the entire DIV stays immobile, which is also poor CSS behavior. Maybe in the next versions, they'll all work right. :-)

Well, your old background wasn't so much boring, as hard for the brain to deal with. Now, the new one, parts of the text that run off the white and onto the background, are nearly impossible to read.

Here, try this

Background, with a black text box and white text. Then, if the text overruns the box, it'll still show up.

There should be no text that runs off the white. What browser are you using?

Netscape 7. The last browser I will ever use. (Well, maybe except for Netscape 8)

Odd, when I look at that page in Netscape 6.2 at work or Netscape 7 at home or Phoenix/Mozilla, the text is all contained on the faded background.

Mozilla-based browsers are the only ones on Windows that actually show that effect exactly as I intended - it looks like one background with a white translucent box for the text. Check it out in IE and the box takes the graphics along for a scroll (not at all intended).
