You know how, when you visit a web site, various parts of the display are loaded at different times: title, body of article, ads on the left, ads on the right, ads with text flowing around it, that band at the top that tells you what site you are visiting.
Once everything is loaded, you start to read the article, reach the bottom of the page, and press PageDown to read what’s next. Only, “what’s next” is covered up by that band at the top that tells you what site you are visiting. It appears that the developer that created the web page has forgotten to include the vertical height of the band in the ScrollPage.
Except that forgotten height adjustment to the size of the ScrollPage command seems to have infected nearly every commercial web site available. Can it really be that all of those programmers made that same, stupid mistake?
Not bloody likely!
If hundreds (thousands?) of web sites have the same “mistake” in them, it seems to me that this is not a mistake at all, that it was purposefully added to create that exact effect.
So, either all of those programmers are making the same mistake and never correcting them, or there is a perfectly good reason for them to code those pages like that.
What is that reason?
