Ok I hate the new winamp site. AOL has to fuck everything up now doesnt it? My screen is at 1024x768 so it seems like winamp.com resides within a rectangle. At least the old site was some what cool. I think they should go back to the black site any how. Well yeah and stuff thats all I have.

Hmmm, you lost!;)

The other hasn't been here long enough to have seen the old site.

I have a tendency to like websites that live in little boxes, although I have a 17" screen...

I'm 800x600- and I like it just the way it is- white is much easier on the eyes. But they have mentioned before eventually the colors will be customizable; so... everyone should be happy no matter what colors they prefer :)

Look! I'm old enough to know the old site! I just didn't sign up for forumage until June of 1999 and lost my password to my other account, picaune.

And besides! The new site won't show up on my school's computers! It only shows ads in Navigator 3.2 Gold!

Sorry. I had a really rough week, even though I went to Paramount Kings Dominion from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm Friday.

Netscape Navigator 3.x gold (3.5 for me) was probably the best internet browser ever. Browsers have just gotten bigger which isnt all that better. Look at suv's, gas hogs, or america, too big to power itself hehe.

I guess i just like old stuff the way it is but if you can customize the ugly colors of this site than I guess that will be better.

(driving for six hours on I5 is not fun)

I remember how the winamp site looked back in 1999, it had black>dark gray striped background and maroon title lines. And Website navagation of the left side.

Just stop using tables for layout, separate content from styling, and use CSS for styling, and the site will be far more accessible even for ancient browsers.

well what if we like out table layouts? and what if we can use css within our table layouts? if you can not see how css and table layouts can be combine you don't know css very well.

For grouping blocks of content so they can be precisely positioned and sized by CSS, there's the <div> tag.

HTML tables aren't intended for doing layouts. They are for arranging data that in the first place are best represented in table form, e.g. a portion of an Excel worksheet.

When tables are used for positioning and sizing, you emphasize the geometry and relative position of the cells, rather than the significance of the contents. That destroys the original purpose of HTML, which is to mark up content according to their roles in the document structure (headline, unordered lists, paragraphs etc.)

i think i will keep my pages inside tables for the time being. if html wasn't made for table layouts i will use table layouts because i can. if its not flexible it breaks.
