WHAT WG Spoiler?

David Hyatt wrote in the WHAT WG mailing list: Our slider implementation (Safari) assumes a default precision of integer, and default min/max values of 0/100 respectively if omitted. I propose that these defaults be added to the specification so that it’s clear what values should be used if the values are omitted. This most likely ...

Hot of the presses

I’ll get back to these when I have more time but I feel that these are really important things so I’ll just post the links for them now. The minutes from the W3C Workshop on Web Application and Compound Document are now online. Day 1. Day 2. These are still drafts and they will most ...

Change from MT?

I’m considering switching from Movable Type to WordPress. The main reason is that I fucking hate how MT has to rebuild everything all the fucking time. Why not build it upon first request and then cache it? Wanted features: Needs to run on BSD, Apache 2, MySQL or PostGreSQL (Perl, PHP, Mono, Whatever++) Should be ...

No XHTML, No SVG in Longhorn

At the recent W3C workshop covering Web Applications and Compound Documents, Microsoft said that there will be no support for XHTML and SVG in Longhorn. Ian Hixie, who works for Opera, is a member of the CSS and XBL work group at W3C and who also is a major contributor to Mozilla (used to work ...

Noscript Expand Element

Scott MacGregor wanted some help with improving the way the vCard attachments are drawn in Thunderbird. Since Thunderbird uses the world leading rendering engine he felt that the old way to show the vCard was just too boring. Then TaSK came up with a good looking Photoshop mock-up. However, these have a serious issue and ...

Updated PNG Behavior

I’ve udpated the PNG Behavior to work better when printing. I knew that the PNG images were not being printed but I thought it was just a matter of adding a print style sheet but IE is not detaching the behavior when printing so I had to revert to the IE proprietary events, window.onbeforeprint and ...

Sortable Table and Tasman?

I got an email claiming that Sortable Table does not work in IE Mac. This is part of my reply and since I feel that I cannot get Sortable Table to work in Tasman without help I’m posting this here. We do want Sortable Table to work in Mac IE 5 and Mac MSN but ...

CSS is Old

I read at Foo’s blog about some guy who finally understood what CSS is all about. It just made me realize that I was separating style and content back in 96. Sure, IE3 wasn’t doing marvelous things with CSS but at least seperating style from content was available already back then… that makes it 8 ...

Bindows 1.10 is Out

Yup, on a Sunday. I don’t know why we said that we were going to release this on a Sunday but you got to keep what you promise. The most interesting part of Bindows 1.10 is the new tree view control. I was personally pretty stoked when I got a DOM document to work as ...

MSXML GetHashCode

Does anyone know how to get a unique identifier for an IXMLNode for MSXML? I’ve tried googling around for this without finding a solution. In Mozilla I can just use expando properties but expandos do not work when using ActiveX objects. I think I’ll probably have to use an array and then use the index ...
