So wrong, on so many levels



  • Why???

    <FONT face="Courier New">function go_back_link()
    {
     GLOBAL $CFG;
     $output = "<a href=\"BLOCKED SCRIPThistory.go(-1)\">".GO_BACK."</a>";
      return $output;
    } // end function
    </FONT>

     

    why the global declaration?

    why the " instead of '?

    why work out $output instead of just returning the contatenation directly?

    why not just define GO_BACK_LINK under GO_BACK?

    why the missing semicolon in the link address?

    why the missing title attribute?

    <FONT face="Courier New"><FONT face=Tahoma>WHY WHY WHY!</FONT>

    </FONT>


  • Personally I don't see the virtue of a title element in a text link. The text is there already. No need to explain what it means, unless you want to make your title chinese.

    Drak



  • Why have a "go back" link on the page? For people who've never noticed the toolbar button?



    And why make the site navigation depend on javascript? just to be trendy?



    Aargh, the "web designers" of the Micro$oft  generation. :'(

    Actually, my PDS has a 'Back' button but the screen is small and therefore, this button is even smaller. A 'Back' button on the page would be easier to hit. :-)

    Then again, most webpages aren't made to be seen on a PDA anyway. Ever seen this site on a PDA? That's a real WTF! [:P] And yet even on a PDS it is working as expected.



  • PDS? Why does it translate PDA into PDS? Did someone turn on a spell checker that corrects PDA into PDS? Well, let's check...

    Nope. No corrections... [:@]

    Try visiting my home page from your PDA. I'd like to know what it looks like. Thanks.

    I've peeked at it just now. It looks okay. PDA's in general only have problems with big images, pages with frames or inline frames or withcomplex tables. But your site is readable and even looks okay on a PDA.

    Btw, a PDA has a resolution of 240x320 so it's a very small screen.

    If you ever want to check a site for accessibility, try it on a 96x64 nokia phone. =D Amazingly, mine don't look that bad. I mean, relatively of course, and some big pages take longer to show up than to download...

    Is it sad that the only place I could think of to go surfing while bored and trying out cell phone web was my own site that hasn't updated in months? >_>

    And your site is...? Or are you shy? :)
