  • My favorite FP tag job so far...  

      <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 20px">
      <span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif">
      <font size="2"><br />
      </font></span><em style="font-style: normal">

    It aparently screwed up the code enough to the point where it couldn't even figure out what was going on and so it had to just change the italics to normal.  Plus, nothing is quite so perfect as an Arial size 2 line break to start the paragraph.  couldn't they have just set the margin at the top as well instead of just right & left?  let along the blockquote tag.  good god!  and this is the program my new super-duper-manager wants to use to design everything.  Finally, I get a WTF right in my own lap.



  • and me, in my own near-WTF...   I almost took a screen-shot of the source code in dreamweaver, pasted in photoshop, cropped and circled, then uploaded via ftp and linked in this wtf.  WTF?  This new manager is infecting my life!



  • FP is legacy. They have Expression Studio now,

     

    Anyone know if Expression Studio is a non-WTF product??? 



  • I've used Expression Web.

    It wasn't horrible.



  • But not great either I assume?

    Could be worse. You could've printed out and put it on a wooden table...



  • Heh, reminds me of something I saw in a website I help maintain:

    <blockquote style="margin-left: 0">

     

    Some of my favourite snipplets are on http://www.msy.com.au/. They use Word (can't you tell? :P), and have stuff like this:

    <p><span style="background-color: #FF0000; font-weight:700">
    <font size="4" color="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <span lang="zh-tw">&nbsp; </span>Best Quality + Best Prices + Best Services<span lang="zh-tw">
    </span>Costs <span lang="zh-tw">Y</span>ou No <span lang="zh-tw">M</span>ore<span lang="zh-tw">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp; <span lang="zh-tw">&nbsp;
    </span>
    </font></span></p>

     I love how the Y and M are Chinese (lang="zh-tw") :P

    by the time I was in photoshop circling the text, I started thinking of that one.  classic.



  • probly outsourced to those taiwanese sweat shops.  only problem is all the sweat interferes with the network services.



  • GUI html "coders" are pretty always a WTF at all times. My two favorites are anything that Word spits out when you "Save As HTML" and, from days gone by, absolutely anything that Adobe Pagemill spit out.


    Of course, the GUI editors are only as good as the people in the driver's seat, and pretty much most of them couldn't find their ass if you attached their hands to them with lag bolts. At a former job, the "webmistress" somehow managed to take a (relatively) slim 20k homepage index.html and turn it into around 20 megabytes. She'd "tested" the page only from her local HD, but when it was live, and people started hitting it via 56k dialup, things didn't work so well. Somehow she'd managed to duplicate 20 megabytes worth of <font face="font1, font2, font3"> tags nested about +MAXINT times, with the corresponding </font> tags.

    What's worse, she'd managed to do this in Dreamweaver, doing a simple "please add [tiny] line X to paragraph Y" type change.

     

    This is, of course, the same person who managed to crash the print server by submitting a job a few thousand times. Click print, nothing happens (printer was out of paper), click again, still nothing happens, click some more, repeat until the Cat5 is smoking. I can understand submitting a job a couple times before going to check to see if there's something wrong with the printer, but this was literally several thousand copies of the same 2-page printjob. Takes dedication (and a heaping dose of stupidity) to sit there and click print that many times.
