Feigning normality since 1973

Totally XHTML

Filed in: Website Management.

I've just knocked a long-standing item off my todo list: Every page on is now validated strict XHTML. This means that the pages will all be a lot more compatible with browsers other than Internet Explorer.

The last section that needed to be converted was The DiscContinuity Guide, which was unfortunately last updated more than two years ago. The HTML code it contained was very old (and buggy in a couple of places) but is now all fixed up and shiny.

This also marks the first time in a few year that has had a uniform look to it (except the NZDWFC site which has a look of its own).

My good mood is only slightly spoiled by the fact that TV2 have resumed playing new episodes of Stargate SG-1 at 1pm on Saturdays and DIDN'T BOTHER TO TELL ANYONE! It appears I've only missed the first episode of season 9 (yes, NZ is two years behind) though...

Watching TV on TV? Do people still do that? Just get it on DVD... (especially when the stations screw around with the scheduling.)

(BTW, "other than" instead of "other then") ...although why would you want to be compatible with IE in the first place?

60% of visitors to use Internet Explorer. :)

Most of the rest are Firefox...

I use both (IE and Firefox, that is). I do end user testing of website development work on both platforms so I've got into the habit of having both browsers open and using one or the other with no particular preference. Especially since IE7 now has the very useful tabbed browsing feature, which was always my main reason for preferring Firefox.

So now the DiscCon Guide pages have been made compliant, is there any progress on adding new content? I'd volunteer myself by I'm up to my eyeballs in other things I should be working on!

Alas, the last time I asked on the DCG mailing list if anyone was interested in doing some more entries for it, I got no responses. It's really a job that needs three or four people to catch everything.
