Odeon…what are we going to do with you?

Writing about web page

As any cinema loving Mozilla/Firefox user knows, Odeon have had a horrible, horrible website for years.

Matthew Somerville created a nice accessible Odeon website for them a while back, but instead of taking his free advice or hiring the man, they did the good old Cease and Desist!! tactic instead.

So, after all this time, they have finally changed their website. And what have they done? Created a lovely new accessible CSS based website? Of course not. They have put a couple of links on their front page to cinema listings in HUGE FONTS! Wow, I bet they really pushed their development budget on that one :(

It's really not that hard to create good accessible cross-browser websites any more. At E-Lab, we strive to create good clean markup controlled by decent CSS. Yes, sometimes we get it a bit wrong, but we can tweak our CSS whenever we feel like it, Odeon are taking years to get round to sorted their website out.

By the way, if anyone spots and mistakes or problems with the layout/colours of any of the blog styles, let us know at the feedback forum
