Re: [WSG] Firefox is a pushover

2007-11-21 Thread Lars Michael Sørensen
I would begin by installing Firebug and Yslow extensions in FF.
There's also a HTML validator based on Tidy that could be handy, but
you get the same level of validation w/ Firebug so no need to install
both (although I happen to have).

Other extensions worth having: Web developer Toolbar. I think there's
also a IE version.

 I build websites on a Mac and have to check my websites on another
 machine in order to view them in IE.

 I experience the usual issues with IE applying css differently than
 Firefox but my biggest frustrations, lately, have come from errors in my
 html that Firefox has happily ignored but IE has faithfully shown up.

 Its traditional to knock IE6 for its non-compliance but its done a good
 job of validating my html lately.

 I would like to get my Firefox to toughen up and show up errors in the
 html without having to submit it to a validator?

 The problem usually comes from missing closing tags.

 Kind Regards

 I would recommend avoiding that tutorial - it teaches some techniques
 which should never be used by anybody with an interest in making
 usable and accessible sites. Generally speaking it will get you to
 the level we were at when Netscape Navigator 3 was the target
 browser, which was over ten years ago. There are much better
 techniques available for modern scripting.

 I would recommend (in no particular order - look through them in a
 shop and pick an author whose style you like): DOM Scripting by
 Jeremy Keith, ppk on JavaScript by Peter-Paul Koch, David
 Flanagan's JavaScript: The Definitive Guide and Chris Heilmann's
 Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and Ajax.

 Also, Chris H has an online course at http://onlinetools.org/
 articles/unobtrusivejavascript/ which will help you unlearn the bad
 things learnt from the tiza.com tutorial ;-).

 Regards,

 Nick.

 http://domscripting.com/book/ is very good too.

Re: [WSG] PHI and YUI Grids

2007-10-31 Thread Lars Michael Sørensen
We're using YUI grids at www.dona.dk.

I'll never use anything else again, if I can help it!

/lmss


2007/10/31, Maarten Stolte [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
 Hi,

  We've been using the YUI for a while. We wrote our own variant to
  support the proportions that our Art Director likes to use, which
  include the Golden Mean.

 Can you show any examples of sites using it? I'm wanting to show our
 front end designer some examples.

 thanks,

 Maarten
