As of this writing, it has been ten years since I first created The Mega Man Home Page (“MMHP”). A lot has changed since then. MMHP has gone through four major revamps. Browsers have gotten more sophisticated (I remember when tables were new and cool). Pop-up ads have replaced background music (which replaced blinking text) as the most commonly abused irritating element on a typical website.
Throughout it all, however, it has always been my goal to keep this website a pleasure, not an annoyance, to view. Still, there will always be concerns with compatibility between browsers, particularly as pages become more complex. I try to make sure the content is viewable from any browser, but some will display the pages differently more than others.
- Tables - I use tables for the borders and other effects. Generally tables are well supported by all browsers available; however, some browsers might have difficulties when faced with a high number of nested tables. Also, there could be complications with the CSS, below.
- CSS - CSS is both a boon and a nightmare, as none of the browsers display it in the same way. I have long stuck with traditional HTML for that reason. Unfortunately, some effects can’t be accomplished using HTML tags, so I’ve begun using more and more CSS. I really can’t predict what kind of CSS weirdness might result in other browsers, particularly older ones.
Should you end up with a page that is completely unreadable, please send a screen shot of the problem area and I’ll try to fix it. Do also mention what browser and computer operating system you are using as this can sometimes make a big difference.
If you are getting strange green or yellow underlined text, these are not a part of MMHP. They are caused by one of several types of adware/spyware software, usually installed as browser helpers in Internet Explorer. As such, I have no control over the content of such things.
Likewise, any pop-up ads or banner ads that you encounter while viewing this site are not actually a part of MMHP, but are caused by spyware installed on your system. I do not use advertising and I do not use pop-up windows (except for some of the password generators which pop up a small window with the generated password).
In closing, my goal is to make the site accessible by all. If you find a page that is unreadable, send a screen shot of the problem area and I’ll try to fix it. Please also mention what browser and computer operating system you are using as this can sometimes make a big difference. I can’t make any guarantees (if I can’t test on the system in question, it’s difficult to debug layout issues) but I’ll do my best.
