Tan-Fastic

May 13, 2005

I just want to know, why the f&^#*&^$^$ I’m still having problems where Internet Explorer under XP cannot render a damn 1px dotted line for a border. I mean, we’ve had this problem for what? 5 or 6 years now and they can’t get it working.

I’m having to design a new little page to enter into a larger page we’re using. We’ve purchased this piece of hosted software that’s still using ASP 1 and the site is tables abound. So my attempts at using a tableless layout for our stuff has failed and now I’m having to channel my FrontPage using pastlife to design a template with dotted borders that actually work.

My tableless attempt looks fan-fucking-tastic under Firefox and Safari and on everything other than IE. I mean, this work will be seen by a lot of people and now I’m having to fit oldschool code into a site that these people need to update…..aarg!
