From The Developers...

Eventhough we have implemented multiple user interfaces, we believe it's very important to maintain a consistent layout, no matter which interface has been selected.

Compare Menus
images vs. tables

In "graphics" mode, navigation menus are images with shaded titles items all upon a shaded background. The arrows show the connection between a given menu item and its corresponding submenu.

Graphics Interface

In "text" mode, there are no images for menus, instead we use tables with shaded backgrounds and shaded cells to achieve a similar appearance. These menus are all text-based and much faster downloading.

Text interface for web browsers that support shaded tables.

And for those web browsers that do not support shaded tables, WW2010 will automatically recognize such browsers and use a generic layout for the menus. Though the shading is absent, the vertical structure and item indicators (red arrows) are still maintained.

Text interface for other browsers
