That's not an explanation. ALA published a follow-up by Richard on the same

[WSG] internet explorer 8 font name problems

2010-01-15 Thread Marvin Hunkin
hi.
got a series of sites, which i developed in internet explorer 6 or 7.
and now when i try to read the font name.
in internet explorer 8.
it does not read the name.
got a style sheet and have got the fonts added.
and the style sheet is atached to the right locations.
in internet explorer 7, would read the font name on the element like a 
heading, list, or paragraph.
so how to fix this.
is it a microsoft problem or a jaws problem.
as using jaws 11.
windows internet explorer 8, windows vista.
cheers Marvin.
ps: i am a blind person using jaws for windows from 
http://www.freedomscientific.com

RE: [WSG] css tutorial

2010-01-15 Thread Thierry Koblentz
 Also, please try our Opera Web Standards Curriculum section 27 entitled CSS 
 basics,
 written and contributed by Christian Heilmann. 

 Here is the hyperlink to it: http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/27-css-basics/

There are a bunch of typos in there.
- Extra semi-colons,
- The :first-line and :first-letter pseudo-elements contain 2 --
- There is an extra ( in the :lang() pseudo-class example.

Also, because of the uniqueness nature of ID, I'm not sure the example below 
makes much sense (unless the author uses the same ID on various elements across 
a site).

div#example{}
matches the element with the id attribute example, but only when it is a div

Things like that don't help people who are looking for basic tutorials because 
if they come to learn the syntax we can't expect them to spot typos or bad 
practice.

I have great difficulty to read the above site  (16px in body tag) and the 
dev.opera in my 27 iMac which is 2560 x 1440 resolution. Firefox web developer 
reveals that it has a 13px for p tag, but I find it hard to read, perhaps the 
font is the cause. Mezzo Blue has 12px yet it's more readable.

Font size in smaller percentage or pixel in body tag creates more problem for 
larger screen? Apple sold million copies of its new iMac, likely is just a drop 
in computer user pool, it does however brought to my attention to have to pay 
attention to these users.

Actually, on ALA I find the text small and the sans-serif font does not
help.
I have a user styles sheet that sets the font-size on body (100%). It turns
out that the sites that think they get it right for most users are the
ones that look the weirdest.
One I'm surprised to find in that batch is
http://www.paciellogroup.com/blog/
With font-size:100% one gets huge *and* tiny fonts on the same page. 
Imho, this goes against allowing users to browse the web the way *they*
choose.

Go to your CSS file.
Find the declaration that reads:
body
{
font: 100%/1.4 Helvetica Neue, Arial, sans-serif; -- :: add
background: #fff;
}

Amend that declaration to read:
body
{
font: 100%/1.4 Helvetica Neue, Arial, sans-serif;
background: #fff;
}


Reply to the list. Not me. Thank you, Marvin.
