I stumbled across an interesting site today. At first I thought to myself, $#@* Microsoft is buying Firefox! but it appears to be a very well done parody of how Microsoft once again ripped off what was already there and found a way to screw it up and call it IE7. What's even cooler, is they chose to use Element for their design. Funny stuff.

Being the design junkie that I am, always looking for good links to CSS and design resources so I've compiled a list of some I've recently come across.

Often times in the forums when someone has a display problem with their template and I can't replicate it from my Mac, I usually ask them for a link or a screenshot of the problem. I must say I am very surprised at the number of users who are still operating in Windows XP with ClearType disabled.

If your fonts look ragged or almost pixellated, you may be able to make your eyeballs a lot happier by turning on ClearType.

I highly suggest you run this tool for tweaking your display preferences. There are alot of other resources out there as well.

Many Joomla users, particularly newbies (newcomers or beginners), fall victim to a variety of issues which have the same root cause. The so called www domain mismatch causes a wide variety of issues such as login failures (both core and Community Builder logins, and administrator logins), WYSIWYG editors failing to load or failing to save content, javascript execution halted with error messages. At JoomlaShack our own Flash based JPG Rotator is triggered by javascript and this module is amongst those affected.

I came across a great example/article by a designer named Andy Rutledge about the purpose of HTML tags, and why HTML tags contain "no presentational value". His argument is to let the CSS handle all the presentation, while HTML tags only serve to provide "meaning and context to the content". Brilliant work, Andy!
