20 01 2018 Complete reorganization of the "hibiscustour" site, with restructuring and basic reprogramming in CSS3 style. Iles et lagons is part of a group of three sites, under the generic name of hibiscustour. It is the last part of this important "rejuvenation". On 25 07 2017, a first draft had been transferred in order to better distinguish and present the three sites, one of them being already revised "CSS3". This work was greatly complicated by the need for a huge clean-up - not completed - due to the "automatic" site composition software (*). The modifications also concern the updating of texts, visibility/readability, (titles and subjects, spacing, limitation of excess colours and highlighting, direct display of some photos to remove a "click", introduction of pop-up, text or images, at the "hover" of elements. I will continue as long as I can (I am 84 years old), Introduction of three such reactive menus for each page banner and its group of belonging (clarification of the navigation on all three sites.

20 01 2018 Complement on the design of the site (continuation text above, same date) Indeed, even the best of them, American, does not allow to make something really clean. Each retouch makes the mess worse because they just add, without deleting. Worse, they indulge in catastrophic automatic "adjustments" and replacements that can't be prevented, piling up "miles" of repetitive lines that complicate any modification. After many setbacks, I used TopStyle 5.0, advised on the net by a designer I thank. So I relay here the information. Of course you have to start programming, but Top Style is incredibly well done and complete, originally intended as a complement to an American auto-dialing software, which may have bought it back because it no longer exists! This version 5.0 still available is free and without any advertising compensation.
