Is this a NET issue or just bad web design

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by George Hester, Jul 5, 2003.

  1. Because in my .NET implementations I do not run into this. Yes granted I don't use the various technologies that Microsoft does but in my book using enhanced products erroneously is worse then not using them at all. For example take a look at this page:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/ado270/htm/ado28_securitydcrs.asp?frame=true

    Now if you turn JavaScripting off you will see the entire statement in the second gray block. With JavaScripting emabled you only see this much:

    "This Website uses a data provider that may be unsafe. If you trust the"

    You should see this, "This Website uses a data provider that may be unsafe. If you trust the Website, click OK, otherwise click Cancel."

    The rest of the page is similarly corrupted. This is using 800 x 600 resolution which is what the majority of the world uses.

    Now there are other places at Microsoft that have troubles such as this. For example it is often the case that when Microsoft has a box in the upper right that is a menu allowing quick access to related materials, that box will write over the text in the page making text in that area unreadable. Lately Microsoft has been addressing this issue the result of which is large amounts of white space.

    Here is an example of this:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304894

    So is this an issue with the .NET technology or is it just poor web design? Thanks.

    Poor Web Development. MSDN has become very problematic lately.
    In fact, all Microsoft properties have been flakey while in transition
    from ASP to ASP.NET.
