Re: [WSG] IE fixed: PNG transparency working like Firefox???

2005-02-13 Thread Dmitry Baranovskiy
There is no need to use JavaScript for PNG in IE. I am using empty GIF
and CSS like this:
#CaptionImage img {
background: url(i/title.png);
background: expression('none');
filter: 
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='i/title.png',
sizingMethod='crop');
height: 115px;
width: 400px;
}
It works everywhere.

Re: [WSG] IE fixed: PNG transparency working like Firefox???

2005-02-13 Thread Jan Brasna
I rather use
#logo {
  background: url('img/logo.png') no-repeat;
  ...
}
* html #logo {
  background: none;
  filter: 
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='img/logo.png',sizingMethod='scale');
}

or better put the IE junk in css linked by conditional comments.

[WSG] web standards training course/events in Sydney?

2005-02-13 Thread Cade Whitbourn
Anybody know of any good training course or events that are being held in
Sydney (or the other capital cities) this year on web standards/best
practice web design/usability etc - other than the regular wsg meetings?

(For budgetary purposes, I need to identify any that I want to attend now,
rather than later.)

Cheers,
Cade.

Web Essentials will definitely be on again. Russ, Peter Maxine and I 
are working hard to put together an even better event this year.

There will be an announcement reasonably soon, but if you thought last 
year was good...

Same time frame as last year too, Toward the end of September.

2005-02-13 Thread Neerav
What about http://2005.sxsw.com/interactive/ ?
suggestive coughits 1/2 the price WE04 was! /suggestive cough
Established in 1994, the SXSW Interactive Festival consists of four 
days of panel programming, a Trade Show  Exhibition, plus a full 
schedule of exciting evening activities. This is a unique event where 
top-notch developers, cutting-edge designers and out-of-the-box 
thinkers share their inspirations about the future of the web.

While we cover the how of new technology, SXSW Interactive pays 
particular attention to discussing the larger questions such as why did 
this happen and what are the long-term implications of this innovation.

2005-02-13 Thread John Allsopp
Leslie,
I'm wishing we could have something like that in my neck of the 
woods...
SxSW is on soon, and two of the organizers of Web Essentials are 
speaking. I'd recommend getting down and organize quickly if you are 
going to, because hotels fill up!)

Maxine Sherrin is speaking with Molly Holzschlag and Eric Meyer on 
Women on the Web, while I (John Allsopp) am organizing a panel with 
Dave Shea, Doug Bowman, Jon Hicks and Eris Free on Web design and 
development in 2010.

As to Neerav's comment about price, WE and SxSW are two quite radically 
different events.

SxSW content is largely discussion panels, where several speakers cover 
a particular subject. Speakers are largely not paid, and people tend to 
go as much for the networking and socializing as for the content.
Web Essentials is all about the content. We focus on bringing out the 
best speakers in the World, and making sure that the content is 
focussed, and we want every second to be as valuable, and enjoyable, as 
possible.

I guess its a bit like the big day out being cheaper than seeing U2 
(music analogy, sorry for non Aussies). both have their place

I'm really looking forward to SxSW, but see it as being a very 
different thing from Web Essentials and other such conferences.

Hope this helps,
john
