Modernising from tables to cascading style sheets
I've been updating some web pages these last few days. Our web site traces its origins back to 1997 (when we registered wellho.com) and although it's all changed many times since then, there are underlying elements which have been getting a bit long in the tooth. Whole loads of tables that we have spent many sleepless evening debugging are moving aside for cascading style sheets, tags are being updated to the modern standards (matching, quoted parameters, low case tag names, deprecated tags removed) and navigation aids are being updated - when we had 80 pages it was easy enough to find things, but there's now over 8000!
Navigation's a huge issue, in fact. We've so much good technical material out there, but how do people find the right pages within our site?
This evening, I've just released the first of our new-look pages in the solutions centre. See here
for an example. And watch the site move across over the next few days to pages that have more content per screen and are more logically navigable. We hope you'll stop and browse a lot more pages in 2007, and book a few more courses than in 2006. Which, however, was our busiest year to date.
Happy New Year, everyone! (written 2006-12-31, updated 2007-01-02)
