Watch yer font sizes!

Is there anything about this web malarkey that Jakob Nielsen doesn't moan about? This time it's designers using stylesheets to specify font sizes. Along the way, good ole' Jakob has a pop at people who change the colour of their scrollbars… like that matters in any way whatsoever. He's such a whinger…

OK, so maybe absolute font sizing is bad.

More travails with Vignette Portal, the proprietary product we're using today. It's not the easiest product to work with, to be honest. I prefer whacking my JSPs together in Tomcat…!
