Crediting the current design

Originally the official number (except for my original design) was displayed in the status bar of most browsers. The status bar seems to have been largely eliminated though so I changed it to a mouseover of the words "random style" in the body of the document. My design shows a number of times determined by the javascript, currently about 10-20% of the time and for reasons unclear (i.e. the detailed behavior of the random function that causes it) they tend to bunch together.

Fault rate

There is a rate of failure on the display of CZG designs that I consider acceptable for the present. There are different causes. One is that the user agent may simply fail to retrieve or render the design at all. In that case you see just the text with essentially no style and black and white text. The other is that a design may load but not render correctly due to my changed XHTML in which case usually some part of the design "messes up". I know of no cases where the whole design fails when it is retrieved and a rendering is attempted. Failures of both kinds together as well as the consecutive appearances of my design occur about 10% of the time with 80% or so of that being the non-randomness. Root 03:48, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
