DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
This web site has been designed for an 800 x 640 pixel screen and has been tested for compatibility in these browsers:
- Netscape Navigator 7.x and higher
- Windows Internet Explorer 5.5 and higher
- Mac Internet Explorer 5.2 and higher
- Safari 1.x and higher
- Firefox 1.x and higher
- Opera 6.x and higher
Visitors using Netscape 6.x and IE 5.0 and earlier will experience full functionality and content with a limited presentation layer.
Reliance on current, standards-compliant design and coding
Neekdesign develops websites to strict, up-to-date design and coding standards as set by the W3C and endorsed by all browser manufacturers including Microsoft, Netscape, and Opera. These standards ensure predictable and equivalent rendering across browsers and platforms, visually rich presentation layers, enhanced usability through clear coding and fast downloads, and ease of production and maintenance.
CSS for look and feel
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the code that gives your site its unique palette, typeface, and layout characteristics. By leaving formatting and design code out of our HTML, we can quickly construct modular pages and implement most design parameters in a single CSS file which is then applied to every page on the site. CSS specifications were published 7 years ago by the W3C and have been supported for years by the major browser manufacturers, including Netscape, Apple and Microsoft.
XHTML for backward and forward compatibility
We code to XHTML 1.0 Transitional or Strict specs rather than the older HTML 4.0 (which was never approved by the W3C governing body). This means our HTML code is tight, lean, well-documented, and thoroughly tested in both white-box and black-box environments. The code will execute in older (4x and higher), current (6x) and future browsers.
PHP and MySQL for a rich dynamic and interactive user experience
PHP is a server-side language used to manipulate data, files and forms, and to do other interactive tasks. In conjunction with the powerful open-source database MySQL, PHP allows us to capture valuable customer information on your website, create a more personalized and interactive experience for your customers, and to provide you with pertinent customer data.
