Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: ASCII status bars and low tech status bars

Posted by Steve Manning on
My experience is that pure CSS design whilst desirable is not possible until all the browsers support CSS in the same way.

The tableless sites that I've seen bend over backwards to cope with the differences between browsers - or simply don't bother  so unless your using IE5+ on Windows the layout sucks.

By the way I've used this trick to produce a simple histogram - its not just limited to a status bar.
