Theory and Conventions



M J Bridge




I have written this site using Serif WebPlus X8 (now a legacy product), which produces code in HTML 5 (as I understand it).

All page widths are set at 1255 pixels, and the shortest pages have a height of 890 pixels.

This ensures that the pages fit on a screen set to a resolution of 1280 by 1024 allowing space for a vertical scroll bar.

It gets a little bit lost in the middle of a wide-screen set to 1920 by 1080 but that is neither here nor there.

Whether these considerations are still relevant in the world of modern browsers and percentage displays I have no idea.

I have tested the site on Edge, Internet explorer and Chrome on PC’s running a windows operating system.

It also seemed to display satisfactorily when I looked at it on an i-pad, but I cannot vouch for its appearance on other hardware or platforms.

Let me know if it needs tweaking in some way for some other specific setup.
