I was under the impression that you'll also be able to write HTML 5

is a different concept?).


They are still planning this, but the point is that HTML is not dead,  
(real) XHTML is still badly supported among user agents, and support  
for other namespaces mixed with XHTML (which is the only major  
benefit for it on the client side) is even worse.

HTML5 or the XMLised equivalent are... equivalent, and I'd say so much 
so that internal publishing needs should override the choice between the 
two.


By this I mean consider what the CMS software you prefer, or whatever 
your publishing cycles demands.


There are many, many (many) more XML processing and publishing tools 
than HTML tools (due to the predictable syntax), and it's easier to 
integrate XHTML into publishing flows, but it of course your internal 
publishing needs will vary.

Probably a whole lot if I could isolate the IE6/OS/service-pack

Win-XP/SP2 is said to introduce a nice soup of float-related
freeze/crash bugs in IE6, but I can't reproduce any such problems on any
of my installations with that or other win-OS/SPs for that page, and I
won't venture into blind debugging of IE6.

If anyone can reproduce this particular IE-bug and pin-point what
exactly that bugger chokes on, than a bug-fix may be found and added -
short of changing the actual 'negative margins on floats' demo as such.

tHNx for the effort so far. i noticed this on all ie6's (sp2) i tested so far
and ie7 also has a problem with the left column when resizing. for the time

IE6 frequently crashes on this end; however, I see no problem with your 
page /crashing/ with either a very slow or fast drag from a full window 
down to 175px by 460px.

Yes, but it's nowhere near completion or indeed absolute that it will go
ahead anyway.

So, there's no point in lowering your standards until you have to.

Re: [WSG] prettier forms

2007-09-14 Thread Jamie Stewart
Drop down lists I'm not so sure but check boxes and radio buttons
definitely.

They use JavaScript and CSS and it is a form of image replacement that is
used.

Here is one example:

http://www.whatstyle.net/articles/18/pretty_form_controls_with_css

But there are many out there and as long as your check boxes degrade to the
default you will be fine.  So I suggest styling up your form using the
defaults and use the example above to enhance the look of the form only.
The example above uses CSS 3 pseudo classes but I believe he provides a
suitable alternative if you don't want to use CSS 3.

I hope this helps

Jamie.

Hello,

yes they are normally by either OS or the browser, as are all form
elements, but most can be styled, using either CSS, a proprietary system
or by using tricks like drawing an image instead of the checkbox, and
hiding the checkbox.
I maybe didn't make myself clear, but I'm trying to find a good example of
these javascript/dom/css tricks to style those elements, and maybe others,
and by good example I mean available on as many browsers as possible,
standards based and with a good fallback to the normal elements if the
tricks don't work on a browser.

thanks, it looks like a nice css exercise, but with IE support being
non-existant, and IE usage being everything but non-existant I think I
prefer using the image tricks with javascript.
As for the drop down boxes, I know that tricks exist for those, but I am
afraid that those might not be available with the limits I set earlier on.



 I hope this helps

[WSG] Calendars and tables

2007-09-14 Thread Andrew Maben
I think there's more or less consensus that a calendar is tabular  
data. For one month that seems fine: th for days of the week, td for  
dates of the month (+ events on those days).


So what about an entire year? Is a table of tables permissible? Or  
should one somehow cram all the information into a single table?


I await your opinions with interest... and some trepidation!

Re: [WSG] Calendars and tables

2007-09-14 Thread Diego La Monica
Hi Andrew,
  few months ago I've made a tutorial[1] on my site (in italian language) to
make an experimental calendar totally accessible using (not a table but) a
pointed list (ul/li)[2] (Try to disable CSS and try to navigate it. Hope
you'll enjoy it). Much people said me to be agree with my ideas much other
not.

  So, IMHO (it's better to put this acronym :) ) , I should make a yearly
calendar made as a table with 12 cells: 3 cols x4 (Seasons) rows, and inside
each of them I would put my unordered-list-accessible calendar.

  I hope to be clear and usefull to your issue!

Best regards!
