I think its an interesting idea. However, perhaps it would be better
to have an additional property that wouldn't conflict with the font-
size property. Something like font-size-transform (to avoid conflict
with font-size-adjust though this could still cause author
confusion).


I thought about this as well, but when I was developing the demo I
kept thinking What I really need is a way in CSS to tell the browser
that I don't care what the font size is, just make sure the line
length is X characters, whatever the width of the column is.  This is
why I thought of font-size: auto

hmm... maybe line-length is a better option.  e.g. adjusting my previous example

body {
 width: 100%;
 line-length: 62.5em;
}

#main-column {
 width: 80%;
}

#secondary-column {
 width: 20%;
}

Thoughts?

[webkit-dev] WebForms 2.0 and Webkit

2007-06-06 Thread Andre-John Mas

Hi,

I have heard that the W3C was working on a specification known
as 'Web Forms 2.0'. Does anyone know what the status of this is
and whether there are any moves to incorporate this into
WebKit or any other mainline rendering engine?

Hi Andre,

Is Web Forms 2.0 the same thing as XForms?  If so (I think it is), you may be
interested in these bugs:

The Web Forms 2.0 spec was originally created by the WHAT Working  
Group http://whatwg.org. It has been adopted by the W3C as part of  
HTML5, and we'll likely support some of its features as it gets  
reviewed and integrated into the main HTML5 spec.


(It is not at all the same thing as XForms.)

Maciej

Web Forms 2 is a subset of HTML5.  It is not XForms.  Speaking for  
Apple, we do plan to work on Web Forms 2 support eventually.  We have  
no plans to work on XForms, but contributions/patches are always  
welcome.

Thanks for the heads up.  I did find them interesting.

Anyone got any thoughts on how to deliver high resolution images to
high DPI screens and low resolution images to low DPI screens.

Its not easy to do these days. In my opinion, this is one of the key  
features needed for an HTTP  1.2 (along with event/change  
notifications and a few other things). Apache can probably be  
configured to do this, but I'm not sure that there's a way to easily  
get the HTTP clients to request a particular resolution.


Take care,
Rob
