I want to start a campaign to get everyone to stop using page fading.
Maybe I can start a disinfo thing telling everyone that it causes cancer.
To me, page fades are like flashing text. (which for some reason I can't get to work.... which is not a bad thing)

I don't mind the fades.... it's just the people who set the disolve time to six minutes that piss me off.

Well *duh*.
:-)

I like them.
At least I don't have a Geocities watermark on any of my pages.

another reason I think they're a bad idea and something Chad reminded me of... They're IE specific, aren't they?

my personal point of view (certainly not the only point of view) is that you should like.. go out of your way to be as browser pleasing as possible. On the other hand, I don't jive with the "white background, black text, no images" school of standarization.

You do your transitions.

Any time I hear [insert browser here]-specific, I cringe. If it's so good, suggest it to the w3c for the next version of the standard, dammit. If it doesn't pass muster, it's probably just annoying.

I have to say though, that there are lots of things, not approved by the w3c that are very very nice and pleasing to the eye and functional.
I don't think that you should use their rulings as the end all be all.

Unless of course, you think of web pages as ONLY being there for information, not for design.

ok, maybe what I really mean is that you should become part of the committee.

It's not that I think they Know All, but they're in charge of the standard. Standards are there for a reason.

Heck, you convince everyone to adopt a standard that is a superset of the w3c standard, go for it.

It's standards compliance that concerns me, not the w3c per se.

See.. this is where all my ideologies crash.
Yes, I think that some webstandards are important when it comes to useability and function.
But stuff like "compliance with standards" is just a scary line to me.

If you're looking at standards as something dictatorial, I can certainly understand that.

The kind of standards that I'm talking about, however, are agreed standards of communication.

A web browser should be a web browser. Not a something-that-I-can't-use-to-read-your-page-due-to-
[insert evil browser specific thingie here]-that-you-use.
