Report Off-Topic: Avoiding Bad Reputation in General Posted August 5, 2013 · Edited August 5, 2013 by Err Hi, guys. This question is a bit off-topic, but I rather ask it here than any other site because I know there are some very good developers on here and I'd appreciate their answers more. I've recently started re-skinning HTML pages, as in, moving the content of a page into a different page layout. Basically changing the footers and headers and leaving the content the same. I had an issue of coming across a badly coded page, which I fixed and submitted to the customer. The problem is, the customer doesn't want those errors fixed because it affects the CSS a bit, a CSS bug which I tried to fix but the customer would not accept it. He wanted the re-skinning of that page with those errors still there. I explained to the customer that I do not code that way I would never submit low quality work like that. The customer acknowledged, and feeling a bit conflicted I went ahead with the customer's request. I know some customers don't know about HTML rules and what not, but this customer has no excuse for not knowing this. What can I do about doing this type of work? Technically I am meeting the requirements the customer is requesting and it's not like I can complain to my boss because its within the work that I'm suppose to do. I want to avoid giving myself a bad reputation and I certainly do not want other employers seeing that I even touched this. It does not stop there, it is very likely that I will be having to do this again very soon. I don't want to lower my standards, but I am obligated to do my job. It's a bit of a conundrum.
