For design purposes, I would like to prevent users with early versions of Internet Explorer (mainly IE 4) from accessing the ebook. The reason is IE 4 does not support a lot of features available in CSS2 and CSS2.1.
Can Activ Script detect the browser version?
I realize the @import hack can be used and that may be the only solution, but it would be nice to know if Activ Script accesses that information.
On another note are you using CSS or Tables in your ebooks? Just wondering.
That ebook is close to 800x600, but not exactly. I just chose that size as the lowest common denominator, 'cause the graphic frame can't be resized to be smaller, for those with lo-res screens...*
Activ doesn't have the skin functionality, but I've requested it on the Version 5 wish list. An expandable frame would be nice, but Sunil has higher priorities, I'm sure.
*Speaking of which, now is a good time to drop by your local GSA clearinghouse (in you're in the US) and pick up on some used oversize monitors. State and Federal offices have switched a lot of workstations over to the LCD flat screens with their end-of-the-year money, and surplussed their current bulky 19-21 inch monitors.
Our Alaska outlet was swamped, and put everything up for $5 apiece (it's usually $50 for an oversize monitor, still a good deal). We bought a few Pentium IIIs for friends and as print servers, and about 6 large screen monitors for about $55 US, total.
Good deal if you're on a budget, and I don't know who isn't....
I phoned the GSA this morning and the number belongs to someone who used to manage the program, but is now retired. After phoning the referral number the guy left on his phone, I spoke with the person who has taken over the retired guys job, but was told his department didn't handle surplus anymore. He gave me another number to call.
Finally, I spoke with someone who handles the surplus program, but found out that private parties can no longer purchase surplus items through them. The only people who qualify are federal employees, schools, etc.
