I use Internet Explorer,
like the majority of Net users. So while developing the site, I have
tested it out mainly in IE. I am also most familiar with this - and
any webstuff I do for work is only ever viewed in IE. I've just upgraded
to version 6, and would recommend it! By the way - a tip from the techies
at work: Upgrade IE - and especially Outlook Express if you use it for
your email - as soon as possible. There are a lot of improved security
features, including protection from dodgy attachments.
Any browser should show
the site OK. But they all work in different ways, and so what looks
well laid out in one might look like a right jumble in another. Apart
from only using the most basic functions, there is no way I can avoid
I also check the site
in Netscape (when I remember). The main difference I notice is with
the links. In IE, any link on the site should change colour and appear
underlined when you pass your cursor over it. However, in older versions
of Netscape, this doesn't happen - so if you think some word or phrase
may be a link, then just pass your cursor over it - if the cursor changes
shape (usually to a hand), then you are over a link, which will take
you to another page or a mail screen if you click it. I have
tried to remember to colour all the links orange, to make them stand
out - my apologies if I've missed one!
I want this site to be
shared by all the Plakias fans out there, so
please mail me with any tips, comments, help, advice, news etc.
and as soon as I can find some time, I'll build it in (editorial rights
reserved, of course!). You might also try the Message board (click on
Messages on the left bar) - if you have a question, you'll often get
a better - and quicker - answer that way.
Several Plakias regulars
keep in touch through the site, and have contributed a great deal to
it. If you see one of their names in orange, then it's because they've
allowed me to include a link to their e-mail address. Just click on
it and you can mail them direct from this site (or at least you can
if you are using IE or Netscape - I don't know about all the other browsers
advise me of any broken links or other errors.
