See if YOU can make heads or tails of that. They wanted to ‘track changes’ in the document from revision to revision, but of course, they chose yellow highlights and strikethroughs to do it — can you say “Not 508 Compliant”? Can you also say “Eye-Bleedingly Hard To Read”? Our comprimise was a bunch of graphical start/stop indicators for the blind-enabled browsers to cope with and even those suck incredible amounts of suckiness. Wrap it all up with Microsoft Word XP’s horrendously inaccurate and MS-specific bulky pile of shit HTML code conversion which you have to spend hours cleaning up and you have the living definition of the document from hell.
Guess what I’m converting today? That’s right, the next complete revision of this document.
Shoot me now.
I’m really looking forward to going on jury duty and sticking The Only Other Web Guy with all this stuff. Maybe then upper management will learn that we need more than two people on the case.
