I’m afraid I’ll have to rant about Black Bull Web Design and their web site, since it’s so inaccessable it’s almost amusing.
Now, last time I checked, to create a link to a page, you would use the following code:
<a href="newpage1.html" style="color:red">New Page 1</a>
I’ve spiced it up slightly with some CSS to give the red colour as used on the site. However, Black Bull beg to differ. There, they acheive the effect with the following code:
<td class="welcome" onmouseover="this.style.color='red'" onmouseout="this.style.color='006600'"><span id="newpage" onmouseover="this.style.cursor='hand'" title="available options">New Page 1</span></td>
<script language="VBScript" type="text/vbscript">
Set objNewWindow = Window.Open("newpage1.html","myWindowOne", "width=560,height=300,toolbar=no, menubar=no, location=no,directories=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=yes,top=120,left=15" )
Furthermore, the code bulks out the page terribly. You could shave at least a kilobyte out of it if you stuck to simple text links like everyone else, and on a site which generates a lot of bandwidth that could be a very useful saving.
Sometimes I dispair at so-called web designers.
