DOCUMENT OBJECT MODELS NOT COMPATIBLE
In my response to P.S. I detailed how the Document Object Models or DOMs for each of the popular 4.0 browsers are different and incompatible, one of the big reasons for "the browser wars". I pointed him to an article by Charity Kahn of c|net's Builder.com site titled "Hack the DOMs" that is a good starting point for learning about the DOMs and how to build sites for cross-browser compatibility. What's your opinion on this issue?

You may have noticed the Helpware logo and hyperlink on several 1998 on the Web pages for the past couple weeks(see the bottom of this page). Helpware is a brand new site on the Internet dedicated to listing Web sites in directory form that provide assistance in some manner to Internet surfers. A search engine guides you to links in your area of interest. While just in it's infancy, Helpware is already bringing benefit to this site with about a half dozen referrals per day. If you have a Web site that provides assistance to others, you should visit Helpware and get listed.
WHEN IT GETS HERE?
Thought for the day: "Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing." - Dick Brandon
The 1998 on the Web Technology Diary is changing a little bit beginning today. First, I will begin putting the current day's content always at the top of the page, rather than following a consecutive weekday format as before. Previously, the content appeared Monday through Sunday on the page, so if it was late in the week, you had to scroll down to see the current day. Now the days will appear in reverse chronological order.
Second, I will begin providing hyperlinks to various news media for in-depth coverage of all the day's Internet news and trends. This allows me to concentrate more on the oft requested helpware presented on this site, and provides you, the reader, far broader coverage of the issues that concern us. As always, please let me know what you think of these changes.

Monday, May 4
Well, I am back from vacation in the desert canyonland country of the American state of Utah. A whirlwind tour of national parks left my brother and I longing for more. We visited Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches National Parks over a period of six fun-filled days. At left is a digital photo taken in the Fiery Furnace area of Arches National Park. Click the thumbnail to view a larger(29K) image. You can look for many more photos from the trip in the coming weeks on our Internet Brothers web site.
Being away for ten days as I was, you can imagine the pile of work waiting for me both on the job and at home. Therefore, today's diary entry is very brief. Allow me a few days to catch up on my bill paying, yard work, and other mundane chores, as well as perusing the Internet news that transpired while I was in the wilderness. I have some new thoughts for the format and content of 1998 on the Web, so look for those in the near future.
Thought for the day: "All work and no play makes Jeff a dull boy."
