my friend resent me the link to that sewing page where the text keeps getting bigger
this always makes me cry with laughter idek why
@xyzzy i love how at the end, it's just like "If a problem persists, we recommend that you contact Sewing and Embroidery Warehouse" in a normal font again.
@kepstin that is the best part
it's like they are just absolutely fucking screaming about sewing and then suddenly return to a normal tone
re: last boost from @xyzzy - if you’re curious, you can right-click in the page and see what’s going on.
What happened is, they’ve nested every item inside the previous section. so the first one is “headline-3” sized. the second one is a headline inside the previous headline, so it’s “headline-3” sized relative to “headline-3” size. and it just keeps going exponentially from there.
I’m not really sure how you make that mistake tbh. Presumably IE 4 or whatever didn’t render it that way?
nooo it’s worse than that<br><br>
note the closing </table> tag. there is no opening <table> tag. they are trying to use table layout without a table.
they’re opening two <font> tags, one for red, one for arial, and only closing one of them. after some fake as shit <width> element. so maybe it’s the <font> tags nesting causing the primary problem?
they close <h2>s. but not <h3>s. except there’s precisely two </h3>s hanging out at the bottom of the page.
presumably the browser they were testing this in automatically closed all the appropriate tags when it encountered incorrect end tags?
