    IE VPC's - Which Ones Next?

    • 25 Comments
    Apologies for going dark the last little while, I'm going to do my best to change that again. Lots of stuff going on here that I'm really excited about, but before I get into that, I want to do an unscientific survey. We currently offer developers...

    Running The IE VPC’s on other VPC Hosts?

    • 16 Comments
    I’ve had a few people email me, or email the IE blog to ask about running the IE VPC’s on other VPC hosts than Microsoft VPC so I figured I’d post this to my blog. I don't think anything has changed in the images since we've started producing them...

    Don't forget to check your web application on other browsers!

    • 9 Comments
    One of my pet peeves about web designers and web application developers is the ones who don't check to make sure everything works and looks good in the major browsers, not just IE*. I am a 100% IE user at work, and at home, I use IE when I'm on my PC...

    Cascading Style Sheets

    Getting/Reading HTTP Responses

    There has been a semi-frequent request on forums and such for people who want to do an HTTP request from their application (either web or client) and get the response as a string back so that they can process it from there. I had some code that did something...

    DOCType? Why do I need that?

    • 5 Comments
    I got a comment on my last post ( CSS Positioning: Margin, Border, and Padding ) that was rather blut, telling me to pull it down, as it was confusing and IE rendered things incorrectly. I did a little checking into things and s/he was partially correct...
