Typical Banner Text

In this bad example, users with a slight visual impairment may find the text and other items on the right side of the page running off the screen. These users may never realize that they are losing information.

To experience the problem, follow these steps:

  • Set your system's resolution to 800 X 600.
  • Close your browser (it may not respect the new settings) and open it again.
  • Follow the link to the bad example.

In this bad example, the graphic across the top is too wide to fit in the window, so it runs off the right side. Items below it run off the screen, too. In the good example, the image at the top is split into two parts so that it fills the window, but can contract to accommodate this lower resolution.
