People are always trying to convince me to switch from IE to Firefox, and I’ve always decided not to. And so have a significant portion of other people. So when you’re building or switching templates for you blog, you might want to make sure they work in both IE and FF.
I’ve had several frustrating experiences lately where folks have decided to use fancy image files as blog backgrounds. But they’ve chosen images where the test doesn’t show up against them.
But wait! They can just put a solid color <div> tag on top, so the text will show up. Unfortunately, in my IE8 browser, these divs do not display properly, which means I have to highlight the text to read.
Not surprisingly, this makes me less likely to come back. If you want to have a writer blog, you have to hold up the blogging side of that, not just the writing one. So check your divs!
