I was aksed to checkout this MySpace Layouts site, and right away I guessed the author used Internet Explorer to make sure it looked right. Why? Because IE nicely corrects some of the formatting errors we webmasters make. Looking at the screen shot I made here, you can see Firefox and Google’s new Chrome are not so nice.
Blipsy is a MySpace Layout site. You MySpacers will probably like it most for its scroller sign that looks like a LED scrolling sign. The formatting mistake they made, was that they left the Blipsy Bits section in the dark. They had black text over a dark blue background. It seems tedious, but every time I make a change to a site I do two things. I check I didn’t mess up the format somehow, and I check that the markup validates. The XHTML link you see in the footer in my site, is actually for me, and not so much for the visitor. I constantly check for errors, and it’s the easiest way.
How To Test Your Layout
To check my layout, I use Browsershots. With Browsershots you can check what your site looks like with different browsers, and different versions of the browsers. It’s easy to use, and it’s free, so no excuses!
