Broken: Volvo homepage

VolvoSeth Godin points us to this gem: the home page of Volvo cars - - shows a list of models and the words "Roll Over."
Igor takes it a bit further.


_@_v - better than their "it's another smashup year for volvo" or "you'll flip for our new s.u.v."....

Also interesting is the error message displayed to me by their web server, apparently because my Junkbuster proxy ( declines to tell them what web browser I'm using.

"Server Error in '/VOLVOCARS.WEB.SITES.SCS' Application.

"Runtime Error

"Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings (prevent the) error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons)..."

If you stop and think about what "Volvo" means, it either gets funnier or worse, or maybe both.

The reason it says "roll over" is to inform users that they only need to point at the text to get the information, and not click on it. This is called a rollover menu.

Andrew, I think that everyone here knew that already.
