    Thanks for that, Dave. I need to be reminded that the world constituency is not at all like my largest client. KISS never fails.

    If a site is slow loading I click out within ten seconds.

    As for java script, it may not be the same thing as you guys are talking about, as I know very little about computers, but I recently installed something called a Java Runtime Environment 2 (I think) on my computer (P4 2.66Ghz running windows XP) and it caused all sorts of problems, I even had two 'blue screens'. I uninstalled it.

    Hi Andy,

    Java script and Java are two different things, javascript has a tendancy to be browser dependant and the java runtime enviorment is actually a programming language interperter, so it can cause probelms if it runs into conflicts on your computer and cause the blue screen of death, were is, most of the time the worst thing a javascript will do, is lock up or shut down a browser.

    Not to pile on, but I agree that a Flash intro page is a bad idea. For example, I despise going to freestyle photo if I have to go through their maze to get to the actual site. I have bookmarked the inside page where you can actually start looking for things, but the intro page is very irritating and worthless in my eyes.

    The same goes for static graphic intro pages. That was all the rage before Flash hit the scene, but it is no better than Flash, except in the cases where the files are smaller. Anything that gets in the way of the content loses you visitors.

    Paul.

    I gotta say that for me the biggest turnoff to a web site is when I see Java applets or Flash on the _main_ page. Those technologies can be really useful to create on-line apps and cool demos (not to mention stupid cartoons), but they must NEVER be shoved down the user's throat. Especially with a photo site, it's even worse because you start adding up Flash+Hi-rez photos and even on broadband it's a PITA.

    For me, an all-Flash site is always synonymous with a plasticky, bubble-gum disposable site--movie sites, for e.g.

    I suggest you get a good CSS design (one that is tweaked enough to work in ALL the browsers, not just IE), and XHTML for lightweight markup.

    And lastly, don't overuse tables and buttons. There is enough flexibility in XHTML markup to avoid doing horrors like TV channels sites.

    Javascript problems I've had lately have mostly been on my office machine running Win98se, but occasionally on my laptop running on XP Pro.

    The site I use for academic purposes is still readable in Lynx, but it's pretty much text oriented. I don't even have frames in that one.

    Thanks for the heads up Dave. I seem to be managing fine without the Java Runtime prog. The only reason I installed it was Firefox couldn't open some items on pages without it, for example chat windows on forums.

    Why?

    Why make people wait 10-20 seconds in order to just click on "Continue to site" - I HATE, loath and despise "Intro" splash screens on the front of web sites, Flash or otherwise, (Flash just means I have to wait longer to click in to the actual site). It's a waste of my time. What is the point of it other than: "look how clever we are, we have paid someone xxx to make this site harder to use"... Annoying and pointless.

    Do yourself a favour: resist the temptation: it's the triumph of fluff over practicality.
