Make webpage panel show links + adverts if online, hard-coded text if offline
Posted on 2008-06-22
Our user will download a single html page to their desktop.
The page includes a panel that has info against a background the same colour as the surrounding page.
If the user is online when s\he runs the page in IE6+, we want the panel to display links and\or adverts that it retrieves from our server.
If the user is offline we'd like the panel to simply display text that is hard-coded into the page, (likewise, against a background the same colour as the surrounding page).
The objective is tidiness.
