A collection of photographs using visual puns to illustrate HTML tags. Clever idea.
Over at the Wired blog they’re pondering on the best way to provide licensing information on images; the author suggests a new attribute for
img, something like
lic=“license-abbr”. I think the main problem with this is that it doesn’t provide any information about what that license is, or its terms.
The Microformats solution is rel‐license; basically, putting a link to the license description in the
rel attribute of a link, as so:
<a href=“http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/” rel=“license”>cc by 2.0</a>
I’m working on a new theme for the site, and accidentally overwrote the stylesheet on this one, forcing me to revert back to the only saved version I have — an old, unfinished version. Pardon the way the site looks for a few days.
Most of these aren’t implemented in the IE browsers (do I even need to point that out?), many of them aren’t implemented in at least one of the other popular browsers, some of them are print‐only.
Of the few cross‐browser screen properties, probably the only one that I don’t use is
clip — and honestly, I’ve never had a need to.
Something that’s been bugging me for a while, that I’d forgotten to write about; why does Firefox 2 on Windows and Linux have the classic Back and Forward buttons:
… while Firefox 2 on OS X has the crappy buttons?
If I’m not mistaken, FF2 beta releases on Windows had the crappy buttons, but were switched to the classic buttons after users complained. So why did the OS X version not switch too?
I’ve had to install a different theme on my Mac, as I kept hitting the Back History button by mistake. I use the GrApple theme instead.
