The E-Sylum: Volume 11, Number 23, June 8, 2008, Article 4

MORE NOTES AND COMMENT ON THE E-SYLUM FORMAT

  • John-Dominic Cadorini: "Love the new format and the photos!"
  • John Isles: "I love the new format of the E-Sylum. More compact when printed out, easier to read, and illustrated! Keep up the good work!"
  • David Tripp: "I just thought I'd drop you a quick note to let you know how incredibly impressed I am by your new format. Very classy indeed! Many, many congratulations."
  • Anne E. Bentley: "The E-Sylum just keeps getting better and better. The content was always prime, and now the visuals have caught up. The new format is absolutely gorgeous and the wider column much easier to read. Congratulations to all involved in the metamorphosis!"
Bill Malkmus writes: "I like it! In particular, I really like the way you have the editorial comments on a light blue shaded background. (Before, I used to have to follow the sequences of quotation marks rather carefully, and sometimes then I wasn't completely sure.)

I also am much pleased to see the full column with of text (although you may still get some fleeting gripes about that!). And I like the links from the headlines to the articles -- very handy with the larger issues."

Vicken Yegparian of Stack's writes: "The new format is great and attractive, but I don't use The E-Sylum like I probably should. I print it out and read it on the subway, and then go back to specific items online as needed. It's great subway reading, because each piece is short - I don't get off the train feeling like I got cut off in the middle of things! "

I've never printed one out myself, but there are a number of readers who do. I'm glad we were able to address the width problem and save a few trees. We still have problems to fix for some readers, and we'll keep working. -Editor
Martin Purdy writes: "The text appears twice within the e-mail, the first time as text only and the second as fully formatted HTML. Are we supposed to get both, or is the plain text coming through in error?"

HTML emails by design contain BOTH plain text and formatted HTML versions. Which one you see depends on your mail reader and its settings. Some mail readers display BOTH versions, as some readers have discovered. Adjusting settings may help, but the problem may not go away until an upgrade of the mail reader or a move to another system.

We are looking into some changes on our end that might improve things for more readers, but it will take time - please bear with us. -Editor
