Looks like a neat tool.


Indeed. Many friends use it, and it's pretty straightforward for someone 
not intersted in web tech looking only for a easy solution to publish 
some stuff.

Speaking as the old fart with presbyopia, it wouldn't hurt your readability 
to go a shade or two darker on the light green text. Matter of fact, a 
slightly darker value of grey for the main text would improve things, as 
well. I mean, your site is about accessibility, right?  ;-)


Cheers,
Scott

Hi Richard,

Your content is indeed usable, accessible, semantic and 
valid,but if I was a potential client of yours, I wouldn't be saying, 
'Wow, that site looks great, I hope my site will look like that'. I'm not trying 
to put you down, I'm simply giving you my 
honestopinion.

Now maybe I'm completely out of touch and maybe all our 
sites should look like Jacob Neilson's but from my experience, sites need to be 
aesthetically pleasing as well as accessible and CSS and DOM scripting gives us 
more than enough power to do both. Perhaps you could sit down with a graphic 
designer to work more visual elements into your site and improve the overall 
look and feel? I think it would be worthwhile.

Also, what is the business case for needing the W3C badges, 
really?

Best Regards,
Ryan

[WSG] css title styles

2005-11-04 Thread Sarah Peeke (XERT)
Hi all

I am trying to find a web standards compliant way of styling a title for
a description of references within an article.

Eg: sup title=Ernster L, Forsmark P amp; Nordenbrand K. (1992) The
mode of action of lipid-soluble antioxidants in biological membranes.
Relationship between the effects of ubiquinol and vitamin E as
inhibitors of lipid peroxidation in submitochondrial particles. J Nutr
Vitaminol Spec No:548-517/sup

If I use the above example the full reference is obviously truncated as
title has a predetermined maximum width.

I have found a css/javascript example:

http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/JavaScript/Creating-popup-notes-with-CSS
-and-JavaScript-Part-II/2/

but it doesn't appear to work on any mac browsers (I haven't tried
windows).

Does anyone have any other ideas/suggestions?

Presently the site has a link to the bottom of the page which lists all
the references, which is OK, except that the reader loses their place
when they return to the article.

Thanks in advance,
Sarah

I had created a pretty nifty library for displaying titles just not
too long ago called Sweet Titles which had became quite a hit:

They were tested to work across IE6, Moz1.0+, Opera 7+, Safari 1.3

Hope this helps,

Thanks for your link - impressive titles!

Just wondered, is it possible to have them degrade when javascript is
disabled, so that at least in IE WIN (for eg) the user sees the normal
title?

At present, if I disable javascript in FF (mac) I don't get any titles
at all.

Regards
Sarah

Re: [WSG] css title styles

2005-11-04 Thread Joshua Street
I honestly don't think this is the best solution for you, especially
if you're doing academic papers. For two reasons:

1) because it's impossible to get titles to display in a normal
browser without JavaScript, and;
2) if someone prints out your page they don't get any citations at
all. Well, you CAN make it do that, but that either requires CSS IE
doesn't support, or more JavaScript.

IMO, the best way is to link to the footer and have a link back to an
anchor from the footer, so:

Some text I'm going to footnotea href=#fn1
id=fnbase1sup1/sup/a and then keep writing for a while.

[...]

ol
 li id=fn1Citation goes here. a href=#fnbase1uarr;/a/li
/ol

You could maybe hyperlink the entire citation, but that might cause
problems if your citation is of a website.

The obvious advantage of this is that it prints and requires no Javascript.

hth,
Josh

Re: [WSG] css title styles

2005-11-04 Thread Sarah Peeke (XERT)
Hi Josh

Thanks very much for your reply.

I should have mentioned that we will also be listing the entire
references in the footer as well.

I was just looking for a way to give the user immediate feedback about
each reference, and thought the title may be useful.

The problem with linking back and forth is that there are *so* many
references on each page, sometimes two or three to each quote, so it
gets a bit messy.

Any other thoughts welcome.

Sarah :)

[WSG] Safari problems

2005-11-04 Thread Adam Morris
Checked my site on a Mac OSX running Safari 1 yesterday. The little
background image of the flower for the navigation list does not align
itself to the left of the text link but 'floats' to the top of the
link's background height. On my version of Safari (1.3), this does not
happen, the flower acts as a regular button for the list. It's fine on
Windows XP or Firefox too. Why is this happening?  Is there a way to
line up the image with each of the links for this early Safari
browser?
The guys who I've done the site for, use this browser so it would be
nice for it to behave.
This is the flowered list:

Thanks in advance!
