Imagine for a moment a web page that displays a group of thumbnail images, and, instead of the usual business of clicking a thumbnail to see a larger version, you simply use your mouse's scroll wheel to zoom in and out, pan about the image; and see incredible detail up to quite large zoomed views. Imagination is now reality.

There is no need to manually control the rendering of your site to alter layout. There is an easy CSS based feature that can be used to format your entire site for whatever options you need.

In this article we will see how to make the same site render automatically for screen, print, and handheld. There are other media types that can be used, but these will be the most common for daily use.

Now you can add LIVE CHAT to your web site easier than you ever imagined. The VolanoChat system is a combination of server and client side Java programs. The client side Java applet (46 KB to 57 KB depending on browser) is downloaded by the browser and then executed on the user's local machine. The client applet then communicates with the software located on the server to create a live real-time chat environment.

With the release of Internet Explorer 8, Microsoft has made IE more compliant with current standards, fixing problems that have bugged webmasters for years. This compatibility would probably be great except that it breaks perfectly good web applications created using Microsoft's latest and greatest development tools. This is the sort of thing that results in Apple's great TV ads. In this article, we introduce Compatibility View, discuss the problem, and a couple of the solutions.

If you are editing the stylesheet in Visual Web Developer, and you access the font-family dropdown, Microsoft shows 3 common web-safe fonts and then every font in your system. 

This is dumb.  Most of us designers have many, many fonts that the average web browsing public has never heard of. 

Therefore, I present this list of Web Safe Fonts.  Use this list in the font-family  settings to achieve the effect you want, with maximum web compatibility.

I've created a web application using v3.5 of the .NET Framework.  But, when I go to deploy it, I find only versions 1.x and 2.x in the ASP .NET dropdown for IIS configuration of my application's virtual directory.  Where is v3.5?  How do I deploy if that's not a configuration choice?
