Mac question.

7 replies 1 views Edited Nov 18, 2006
I know that macs use a sepearate display method then PCs, hence the WYSIWYG acrnym..But wouldnt the WYSIWYG editor work with macs..I mean its  just  simple tool on these forms that allows you to add smileys and easy link and such..

Or is it just the safari browswer..I dont own a mac.But i work on one and on my lunch break I like to parooze the forums.But find it sort of awkard.

That makes no sense.
 
PCs and Macs use the same videocards. So how would the display method be different?
 
And what would website editing have to do with "display methods"?

On a mac the displayed image is a lot cleaner then it would be on a PC if you're looking at the same iamge on both..But when you print it the mac will not print exactly like what you see on screen, (color may not be as bright or vibrant) but since a PC is pretty much what you see is what you get what you see on screen is what will print..trust me, I do alot of artwork and printing at work.

You're still not making sense.

WYSIWYG is in reference to website editing. It has nothing to do with printing or anything like that.
 
Mac/Apple screens are generally higher quality than PC screens as well. Plus Apple's method of screen AA is better than Windows. But the same hardware is used in both, and the same basic method of displaying is the same.
Pictures printing out poorly has a lot more to do with the printer itself and the driver implimentation than the operating system. Its up to the manufacturer to provide good printer drivers.

Seperate display method? I'm not sure what exactly thats supposed to mean, but regardless of the 'display method' WYSIWYG is (in the context you are referring it to) related to the web-browser itself. It's not really an issue of if Safari supports WYSIWYG, it does. It's a issue of it's compatiblity with the forums.

For example, not to long ago Firefox didn't have WYSIWYG support on these forums, but now it does and regardless of what platform you're on (WIndows or Mac) you can use the editor inside of Firefox.
