Oh the irony…
...the scathing irony. Monday’s WaSP produced the funniest thing I’ve read this year.
WaSP have just released a minisite, designed by Ethan Marcotte. The purpose of Browse Happy is to spread the message to all and sundry that there are alternative browsers to Internet Explorer.
The Dreamweaver MX Preview Release came out today. It promises vastly improved support for CSS, XHTML, and accessibility (not that improvements would be hard to come by here). Apparently WaSP’s Dreamweaver Task Force consulted on the new version’s evolution, which…
Internet Explorer 7 will have fixes
Over on the ‘official’ IEBlog, Chris Wilson confirms that support for PNG alpha channels and some CSS fixes, in particular the peekaboo and guillotine bugs, have been added to IE7 beta 1. Bring on max-width and friends.
Frames and nested tables bemoan their demise: “NESTED TABLE: is there a place for us, for us maligned remnants of earlier html? We who are cast off by maturing web designers like the velveteen rabbit?” And a fine explanation of the correct use of quotation marks.…

Ajax training workshop
Following on from the great response we had to d.Construct, Clearleft is proud to be putting on an Ajax training course early next year.
What’s in a word?
@media wrapped up with a Hot Topics discussion panel. One of the hot topics suggested by an attendee was ‘semantics’. There seems to be something of an obsession with the word in web circles.
A discussion of the Upgrade Your Browser message so often placed at the top of web pages which can only displayed as intended by browsers with good CSS capabilities. Personally I find find it annoying…
Epizootic is to animals as epidemic is to people. And a brief exploration of putting Unicode characters into Web pages.
Thoughts on browser version targeting
I believe Microsoft has got it right, but pity the IE development team.
It’s time to stop teaching web skills like it’s still 1999
Design Week had an editorial highlighting the demise of craft skills and typography in college curricula. It reminded me that courses teaching web design in the UK rarely include such skills in the first place. So where are the good courses?

And there are photos. And a list of what’s been happening: Odeon crapsters, AMG retrograde, per-site stylesheets, disabling IE6 imagebar, Mozilla security flaw, Malarkey forms, Colly links, Gmail whitelist, XHTML to RSS and fantasy footie.
The media conference this year was as good as ever. Even the queues for coffee and food were quicker this year. I’ve jotted down a few titbits gleaned from the sessions I attended.
