Duty free headache

I tried to buy a liter of Chivas Regal at Nagoya airport in Japan at the duty free shop and I was told that Northwest Airlines does not allow passengers to carry liquids on board. However, it turns out you may buy from Northwest once you are on the plane.

If you do purchase one on the aircraft, you will soon find that at Detroit where you will be connecting to a domestic destination, you will be asked to check-in the bottle as a baggage. Now you need to find a baggage to put in your bottle and then take it to a Northwest desk so that he can check it in. You will end up doing this, assuming you have enough time to catch the connecting flight.

This is a truly frustrating experience. One more reason to give up the booze.

Dojo TabContainer in 3 browsers

All browsers are not created equal (in fact they are created unequal).

The Dojo TabContainer displays tabbed pages with a variety of content placed in them in content panes which are containers for content.

Many web site especially those that have a lot of information on them such as the eCommerce sites have a need for a large number of tabbed pages. How does a large number of tabs render when browsed. The picture shows how the three browsers render a resized web page with these user interfaces.

Mini conclusion: FireFox 2.0 and Opera 9.01 does better than IE 7.0
