Re: [WSG] HTML5 offline storage question

2010-08-08 Thread Brad Kellett
It's really not designed for that amount of data. Perhaps this StackOverflow 
question will give you an idea on limits -

 Hi all, I'm asking around the traps on a question which has come up at work.
 We want to develop an iPad app to will allow users to download from a
 website (like a synch) large quantities (hundreds of MB) of documents
 (pdf and word) for reading offline.
 Is the offline storage tool in HTML5 designed for this sort of heavy lifting?
 are there storage limitations?
 on an iPad?
 I've found a few examples of the tool in action and read bits and
 pieces, but it all seems to be about storing small chunks of data, not
 humunguous great whumps of it.

Re: [WSG] Poetry needing block format but with line-breaks

2010-02-16 Thread Brad Kellett
This has come up a couple of times, and I think the controversial consensus is 
that poetry is one of the few times a br / tag is acceptable (since it's 
technically providing meaning to the paragraph).

This is a linebr /
This is some morebr /
I'm a poet to the max

My poetry is eternal, no?

 Hi there
 I’m doing a poetry ‘zine. Quite a lot of poets want to set the way the poem 
 looks as well as sounds; and one poem needs to be in block format, but with 
 lines breaking at specific words, so I have to use the line-break ...
 Any suggestions on how I can do this? Otherwise I may have to put it in as a 
 pdf image unfortunately (with a link to a page with the poetry in regular 
 html but formatted as required) ...

That's a server-side error that's being generated, if you were to believe the 
link that appears it's something to do with running classic ASP on IIS7. I 
would assume your logs have more information.

Either way, this is probably not the group to be posting about it to I'm afraid.

 Can anyone explain why this error is occurring.
