    I can’t believe you didn’t put on Project Deploy*. That’s an awesome web 2.0 generator I use for generating a web application framework.

  • hey, you

    I’m using IE 7. I went to another machine, at work, different make/model but still Windows XP, different internet provider, and tried it on IE7 there. The comments look the same….very badly formatted. They’re nearly unreadable.

    The comments were fine on Firefox.

    Perhaps you are on a Mac, not Windows. Or maybe you are using Vista. I have no idea.

  • hey, you

    For whatever reason, the comments here are extremely difficult to read. Avatars overlap the text, and there is no formatting for the text.

    Thanks for the list. Number 17 on your list at the end has a note on his website that he has been out of business since last summer. Looks to me like that one will never be active again. I think I’d remove that one from the list.

      Thanks for no 17. I do not know what are you talking about the comments. Just checked it on IE7, Firefox and Safari. The comments looks fine.
      If you are using IE6 probably..I am tired fixing IE6 CSS.
