Web Design and your Online Business

Welcome to Everyone's blog where you'll find me musing about anything related to online business and web design. One of my favorite pastimes is interviewing other people in the industry about how they deal with the challenges of designing pages for their clients. You will hear about everything from how to attract people to your site to making the page behave for any browser, new or old. If you've got an idea for a blog, or for a radio show on Blog Talk Radio, please drop me a line at blogtalk@everyones.com or just leave a comment here!

Second Interview with John Gallant Part Three – Font Sizing

Myra Rhodes - Sunday, September 19, 2010

In John Gallant’s opinion, font sizing is the most intense subject in web design.

Second Interview with John Gallant Part One – PNG Images

Myra Rhodes - Wednesday, August 25, 2010

In my first interview with John Gallant, we received some insight to the baffling problems encountered by web designers when web pages are viewed in different browsers. In this, the second interview on Blog Talk Radio, John begins with a discussion on how to handle PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files.

However, GIFs come with their inherent ‘jagiess’ that make it difficult to fade out to transparency around a curve. With PNGs there is no such thing as jaggies, because rather than going from opaque to transparent, the edges of an irregular image can fade out to transparency. You can then lay the PNG on top of any background and it will show up beautifully. John still recommends JPGs (Joint Photographic Experts Group) for the display of photos. ..
