Was looking at Artemis Corp today, as they’re doing some cool stuff with Microsoft Content Management Server RAPID, but I couldn’t nav through their site, so I gave up after about 3 tries… And this was in IE, with Firefox, their layour was all over the place.

This is a good example of how over-elaborate design and UI can actually do damage to how people perceive you, and how they get access to your content. And we all know content is king.

Looks fine to me in IE. You do _have_ to wait for the page to finish loading before the navigation starts to work though. Firefox displays it okay, but the main image and text appears non-overlayed on the right.

ok – when you click on the main menu items, can you actually do anything?

The problem I have is that when I mouse over the About or Solutions links, I get nada – I can hover, and there is a link in the status bar, but it doesn’t actually take me there… When I click on the About submenu, it does nothing either…

When I copy and paste:
http://www.artemiscorp.com/AboutUs/profile.htm into the browser (IE), it doesn’t do anything easier…

Strange

Hmm,,,

I think had argued this on Swikiri, Automated Design. I have a (mostly personal) problem with content management systems.

I think they suck, and they make user interface design a machine priority, isn’t this action in contradiction (philosophy 100, WITS).

I’m not sure what you mean here, regards the contradiction?

I think it’s a compromise tho’ – but I have seen some really cool UI done using CMS systems…

Show me two links:
one for UI that is done by the machine, and one for UI that is done for the user, but they must both be output’ted using a CMS.
