What we also don't know about the dixons site is what monstrosity of
an inflexible e-commerce application it's written on. The amount of
times i've had to put in nasty hacks because I can't get at the
templates or other files I need to do soemthing the "right" way. Also
who said that their developers did the HTML/ CSS at all - judging from
the quality i'd guess that bit was almost certainly farmed out to a
non-technical design agency who let their jr web monkey do it. That's
how large projects usually work...
