Browsers

This site does not display properly but is usable when using early versions of various browsers that do not properly handle cascading style sheets (such as Netscape Navigator version 4.7x or earlier). In addition, the forum seems to run very slowly in Navigator 4.7x. Those users that are having trouble should consider installing and using a more recent browser. Doing so will improve your browsing experience in general, and not just on this site.

To properly view the pages of www.designers-guide.com you should follow these recommendations:

The Designer's Guide Community recommends Firefox. Firefox is much more capable and provides a much better browsing experience than Microsoft's Internet Explorer, is available on a wide variety of platforms, and is free. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of Firefox is driving Microsoft to improve Internet Explorer and make it more standards compliant (though even with their new 7.0 release, they still have a long way to go). This acts to improve the web in general as site developers need not be constrained by the limitations of IE and so can design more attractive and more functional sites.
