Re: [WSG] HTML5 offline storage question

2010-08-09 Thread Jody Tate
Asking why not just use the cache is a valid question. In this case, using HTML5 storage to house files doesn't seem to be tapping into all HTML5 storage can do--but it's not violating what storage can do either (so far as I know). HTML5 storage is like cookies: Simply put, it’s a way for web

[WSG] @media ordering in stylesheet

2010-08-05 Thread Jody Tate
Hi all, Does @media rule ordering in a stylesheet matter? For example, given the following order: @media print { body { #FF; } } @media all { body { #99; } } Will @media print override the @media all in this ordering?
