Embarrassment: when your portfolio says all the wrong things about you... ;o)

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

(Geeky stuff ahead) When you're applying for jobs as a web designer, it would seem logical to make sure that it shows you in a good light. For example, when you're telling people you can design websites which work well in all the common web browsers, most potential employers would be justified in shredding your CV when your portfolio actually looks more like a broken Etch-A-Sketch than a web page on Microsoft's favourite internet mangler, Internet Explorer.

Oops.

Anyway, lesson learnt - my portfolio now doesn't look a *total* mess in Internet Explorer, although I've had to do a bit of simplification to make sure it's working (I don't have all day to rebuild it, unfortunately), and hopefully I haven't missed out on too many good positions as a result of not testing in Internet Explorer.

Life goes on :o)

Anyone still using IE should get a slap anyway. I have no idea why anyone would - not only are you using the worst browser of all but your missing out on speed, security & functionality.

It will take a lot to throw me off my Firefox throne (or more specifically my Flock2 throne)
