  • HTML is better than XHTML

    Judging by the latest SitePoint TechTimes, it seems Stuart Langridge has won the argument. SitePoint’s DHTML book will be published with HTML.

  • Strictly necessary?

    Dan’s latest SimpleQuiz asks the question ‘When using the XHTML 1.0 Strict doctype, how would you launch links in a new window?.’ The problem to overcome is that the target attribute is deprecated and not available in XHTML 1.0 Strict. We’re not talking…

  • Pixelsurgeon cured

    So taken was I with Pixelsurgeon’s invalid plight (as mentioned in the previous post) that I decided to rebuild the interview page using meaningful XHTML and CSS for all layout and presentation. The markup now validates to XHTML 1.0 and is much more useful, employing…

  • CSS from the BBC

    BBC Broadcast has just released a classy new site with valid XHTML and CSS underneath the hood. Check out the transparent sliding menus built on lists.

  • Structure, presentation & behaviour

    By the miracle of coincidence, the latest issue of Digital Web has a fine article describing the issues I tried to overcome with the Clagnut drop-down menu, as discussed in my previous post.

  • Spectacular calendar

    Mishoo has created a quite spectacular Web site. Using structural XHTML 1.1 (not quite valid, but the intention is clear) and CSS, the end result is visually very rich. But the most impressive bits (to me) are all his DHTML work, from some sleek animations, through mouseovers…

  • Mark-up tactics

    Your mantra for today: ditch divs and eliminate ids for leaner, more meaningful mark-up. Now before you turn away, branding me as a slave to semantics, I will explain some of the common misconceptions to show how the number of divs and ids can easily be reduced.

  • XFN

    XHTML Friends Network is a simple piece of mark-up for identifying human relationships of links.

  • Dream on

    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…

  • Remix results

    Entries for the WThRemix competition are in. Many of the entries stuck quite closely with the current W3C feel, but a few pushed the boat out a bit (as I believe was the idea of the contest). In no particular order, my favourites came from Ben Darlow, Rene Grassegger, Tom…

  • XMaLarkey

    Grant Hutchinson provides a bunch of extremely useful RSS links. ’Cos I intend to follow the herd at some point and get this blog syndicateable. Bob Sawyer gives us a dead handy XHTML meta tag generator. David Eisenberg creates an XML-based markup language from scratch…

  • transparent

    Cross-Browser PNG Translucency in the current issue of SitePoint. Useful, but won’t validate: Let’s just hope that Microsoft wise up and support PNG transparency with the standard tag in Internet Explorer 7! Westciv (makers of Style Master) announce the…

  • Web Essentials 04

    Web Essentials 2004 looks to be an inspiring conference on Web standards, and a really good excuse to travel to Syndey late September/October. The conference will cover the key aspects of web standards: accessibility, markup (HTML/XHTML) and presentation (CSS). The…

  • Far Heath Studios

    It is with great pleasure I introduce the new website for Far Heath Studios.

  • CSS tabs

    Mark Pilgrim recently published his version of tabs build with HTML lists and CSS. So I thought I’d publish my version of as well.

  • I’ve been away

    Why I haven’t been blogging much recently and what I’ve missed over the past few weeks. Highlights include Todd Dominey’s PGA Open Championship and Phantom Power, the new album from Super Furry Animals. Also a brief critique of the new Pixelsurgeon site.

  • Jamie Oliver is Cool

    Love him or hate him, I thought I’d mention our very own Jamie Oliver in response to Dan’s post about American TV chef, Alton Brown. The Essex geezer has been blogging in a manner of speaking for a few years, but recently got himself a brand new site which looks…

  • Discovering DOM scripting

    DOM scripting is much more than getElementById. Elements can be isolated and manipulated without having an id at all. To demonstrate this I’ve put together a simple script which redefines the styles of a class.

  • Web Standards Awards

    The Web Standards Awards have just launched tp celebrate and encourage CSS-based design. The emphasis will be on commercial sites which is definitely a good thing as the Web design world as a whole has a lot of catching up to do.

  • Clearleft is hiring

    We need a talented producer/information architect to join our team in Brighton.

  • Colour tools

    There are a number of really handy online colour tools coming to my notice. They all help the untrained or unreliable eye to come up with colour schemes and palettes based on complimentary and harmonious colours. I list five of them.

  • Browse Happ(il)y

    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.

  • Gruber’s footnotes

    I just noticed the way John Gruber handles footnotes on Daring Fireball. In particular the little arrow appended to the footnote which sends readers back to their place in the text.

  • Form layout

    Semantically speaking, should we be using tables to lay out forms, or should we be using some other mark-up combined with CSS? There arguments for both, but I reckon the most flexible answer is hidden in HTML 2.

  • I’m back

    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.

  • Accesskey standards

    One of my goals for Clagnut is to make it accessible beyond good alt tags and valid code. Providing keyboard shortcuts through the accesskey attribute for important parts of the site, such as search, help and home, can help. It struck me that there should be consistency in…

  • Hackday London

    Hackday London was fantastic. Andy Hume and I designed and developed a hack by way of a web app called Get Us Organised. It proved quite popular.

  • @media 2007

    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.
