Microsoft, you’re killing me. If I do it one way, the email breaks in Live Hotmail. If I do it another, it breaks in Outlook 2007. This is like something out of a weird sci-fi dystopia: MegaCorp has so many disparate products built by silo’d teams with inconsistent ways of doing things that incompatibility is guaranteed.

Alert reader Chris S. emailed me to point out this post by a developer at flickr about how to make IE scale images more smoothly. All you have to do is add
img { -ms-interpolation-mode:bicubic; }
to the stylesheet. It worked! Note that all the other browsers use bicubic interpolation for scaling by default, because that’s the only thing that make sense, but IE requires a non-standard CSS extension. So, pictures on this site should be a little smoother for those of you determined to use Internet Explorer. Happy Hannuka! (via From the Department of Badly Chosen Defaults - Joel on Software)
