Web Page Updates for Mobile Devices
Some readers have reported problems accessing Diana’s web pages using mobile devices— smart phones (iPhones, Android-based phones) and tablets or pads (Apple iPads, Toshiba tablets, etc.) Text in parts of the page appear on a dark turquoise background instead of the correct light-colored background, making the pages difficult to read. A solution has been installed which works for most devices, but not yet all of them.
If you are still having this or another problem, please send an email to Diana’s webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a description of the problem, the type of device (phone, pad or tablet computer), manufacturer of your phone or device (Apple, Sony, etc.), what operating system it is running (Apple iOS, Android operating system, etc.), and which web browser application you are using (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or a default one that came with your device, etc.). Your input really helps. Thanks!
