I have spent the last 16 years developing web sites and applications using ColdFusion, SQL Server databases, and JavaScript. I have strong communications skills, am honest and reliable, and am a real team player.

I am an expert at collecting, validating, displaying form data, populating databases, and creating a smooth user experience. I take pride and pleasure making technology work for people.

Core Strengths

ColdFusion 7/8/9/10 SQL Server 7/2008 jQuery / JavaScript / Ajax HTML 5 / CSS I strictly adhere to ColdFusion, SQL Server, jQuery, OOP and MVC best practices while completing each task.

I am available to develop small or large web sites for small or large businesses in the Minneapolis / Saint Paul / Twin Cities area. I am also available for short or long term contract work as well as long term employment.

I think you make the best point, that the line between web app and web site have been recently blurred. Thanks for your answer!

Your answer is the obvious answer. I'd really like to know what the real difference is, other than one MUST be partially downloaded. Thanks.

@JohnConde has an opinion, just like everyone else here. He's exceedingly knowledgeable and helpful and provides a great service by being on StackExchange. I think his answer is TOTALLY appropriate for companies with a team of experienced web developers. It's TOTALLY inappropriate for a single person blogging and coding about geeky stuff.

@WernerCD, the original post is about a single user writing a blog. Are you suggesting that he takes the same track StackOverflow takes and hires a team of people or that he learns the nuances of every browser? He should spend his time blogging and less time coding.

All good ideas. There has to be a point though ~ which I know you agree with ~ that developing for a small AND diminishing percentage of the people is a waste of time.

This sounds like a good idea to me, and is the way I would do it.

You make good points, and it's fairly easy to make a site 95% compatible ~ if not awesome ~ for everyone. The point I am making above is that it takes a LOT of time developing for the least common denominator.

Which standards do you adhere to? The latest JavaScript standard or the one that says that your site should work just fine without JavaScript? The point is, there's a standard for everything, and many standards oppose each other.

The user's question is about the reasonable use of CSS, JavaScript, and images. It's not about building a web site that hides all of its text in images and JavaScript lazy loads.
