Firefox is another choice... but not the only one. I prefer IE overlays for better compatibility.

maybe the last "INDIA" update




Is that "India" spray painted on or etched into the concrete when it was wet. Now that it's closer it looks like spray paint.

Hope this helps?

Ok.
It just seemed to me that Firefox was a simpler solution than IE + overlay, but it's only my point of view.

It must have been revised, as it shows levels 1 -19 cladding happening in March of next year, but Imre's picture shows that this has now started.

I think maybe you're looking at the wrong bit.

Here's the file.... http://dubaimegaprojects.com/docs/re...n-schedule.pdf

From this it looks like the podium cladding that started today is still 3 weeks late from the revised plan....there are PDF's on the site that show why though!

The thick green line at the bottom shows the podium cladding ending in Oct 07 and L19-L78 completion by Feb 08.

Got it. The portion Fury posted was cropped and so it looked like the label was pointing elsewhere.

Edit: Response to Skytower.
