Improvements to Celebrities, et Cetera
I'm in the midst of making some cosmetic improvements to the indices of the Celebrities branch of my site:
- I finally figured out a table format that seems to work for most browsers. This will make for a neater appearance.
- The images are moved to the right edge of the content area, where they don't compete with the text. Unfortunately, this requires CSS, so browsers without that capability -- e.g. OffByOne -- will see the images inside the text area, and only the text for the associated individual will flow around the image.
- Better graphics for the key (in the left margin), larger and more uniform in size.
- The cross-references will become links to the individual's main entry in the index. (Presently, these go to the individual's page.)
- For lengthy indices, I will provide a secondary index navigation vector, e.g. on the A... page, to the names beginning with Ac, Ad, Ae, Al, Am, An, Ap, Ar, As, At, Av.
- For individuals lacking their own page, I will be able to include a short text description directly on the index page.
