Oh, don't talk too much about v2 or v3. They worked PERFECTLY on every browser. This is what code is supposed to do: WORK.

This is not about the end result, it's about the coding itself.

And either way, it's a JOKE Eugenia. Just laugh and don't put so much effort into it.

Ha! "working code" isn't necessarily "good code"...

By the same measurement Trabant was a good car since it could transport people between point A and B. It didn't do it safely or well but it did it. Not saying OSnews v2 and v3 was like Trabant (I liked both v2 and v3), only that "it works" isn't a good measurement of quality.

Everybody likes jokes as long as they are not the target ;)

Exactly, I like v3 a lot better than v4.x.
