  • Blog Post: Testing Multiple IE Versions, VPC’s and Super Preview

    It’s been almost 2 years now since we first shipped the Internet Explorer testing VPC’s so that you could test IE6 and at the time IE7 on the same machine.  We understand the need for people to test IE6, IE7 and IE8 on the same machine, and remain committed to shipping the VPC’s!  The VPC’s...
  • Blog Post: Setting X-UA-Compatible with ASP.NET Pages

    I got an email today asking about the best way to go about adding the X-UA-Compatible tags on ASP.NET pages where you’ve got a master page, and may want to over ride the X-UA-Compatible tag in some content pages, but not others. After playing around with it in Visual Studio for a few minutes, I pulled...

  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Presentations in PDF & Source for VS2008 Demo

    Yep, the internet is on! I think most of the comments I got yesterday all revolved around the fact that I posted all my presentations in PPTX format.

  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Search Engine Optimization For Rich Internet Applications

    I think that this was my favorite session I did while doing all my ReMIX presentations.

I'm not sure if there is video for this session, but if it shows up, I'll...

  • Blog Post: MIX07 Recap (It's Over)

    Wow, just wow, that's all I really need to say. MIX07 was insane, an absolute great time, and some fantastic new stuff coming out from Microsoft for the web.

  • Blog Post: Favorite Web Development And Design References

  • Blog Post: One Way to Level the Layout Playing Field

    One of my pet peeves about CSS and HTML standards is sometimes, they aren't overly explicit, and browser vendors pick arbitrary values for things like line height, or margin or padding and the like. Eric Meyer has talked about a reset.css stylesheet that would effectively eliminate those differences...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC Refresh

    Cross-posted from the IE Blog In my original blog post about releasing the IE6 Virtual PC Image, we mentioned that it would expire on April 1st, 2007 (no, it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke), and that we’d be releasing a new VPC image to replace it sometime in March. Well, I’m happy to report that I propped...
