Customize Your Page for Msn Tv and Other Set-Top Devices

• Be concise, because the default font for MSN TV is 18 points—significantly larger than that of Netscape or Internet Explorer, meaning users must scroll much more to read content.

• While dark colors on light backgrounds typically work best for most web pages, the opposite is true for pages viewed on MSN TV systems.

• Avoid HTML frames, because MSN TV changes them to tables.

• Avoid image maps. All links become outlined with a selection box when viewed on MSN TV; this means image maps with irregularly shaped hot spots may become unusable.
