Suggestion: Pack page a little hard to read

Post by Shark » Thu May 12, 2005 11:40 pm

Trying to see wether an update you are listing is included in a certain pack (lite, medium, or full) can be a little difficult when the description is short (especially towards the end of the list) and then you have to try to follow your current line, all the way accross the page.

I was thinking that if you just flip flopped the description column to the end, from the beginning, that it would be more readable, something like this:

------------------------
<table>
<tr class="list">
<th width="5%">Lite</th>
<th width="5%">Medium</th>
<th width="5%">Full</th>
<th width="85%">Component</th>
</tr><tr>

<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td><a href="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=319740" target="_blank" title="Read the KB319740 Article">KB319740</a> - MFC applications leak GDI objects on computers running Windows XP</td>
</tr><tr>

<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td><a href="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=842520" target="_blank" title="Read the KB842520 Article">KB842520</a> - "Delayed Write Failed" error may occur after saving file in Windows XP</td>
</tr><tr>

<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td align="center">X</td>
<td><a href="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=867795" target="_blank" title="Read the KB867795 Article">KB867795</a> - 100% CPU usage when running WinSNMP on Windows XP computer</td>
</tr>

---------------------

Aparantly HTML on, doesnt really mean html is on...

Alternating colors would work as well :)

I like buletov's idea. I'll play around with it and post a test page at some point. I'm taking the weekend off from pack work though ;) :P

He might be referring to the middle of the page at KB885835 where you have 3 older KB's listed for this one, and it kinda gets lost when you look to the right as to what goes with what.

Same kinda issue as the pack page..... at least I guess that is what he is talking about.

Yeah, there's multiple ones because those three in combination replace the one hotfix.
