Re: Chrome vs Firefox and BSOD

unfortunately, Firefox can still be a resource hog like Chrome. Yea, there was a time when you got bonus points for tight, efficient code. That was 40 years ago. One of the downsides of cheap RAM. Don't know if related, but 1-2 weeks ago Firefox was crashing my PC. Windows claimed it was a disk dri...

Re: Browser vendors win war with W3C over HTML and DOM standards

It will be interesting to see where things go. There are many here old enough to remember when you almost needed to write different html for each browser. To me, where CSS goes looks like the most fertile ground for divergence.

Re: Max length recommendations

How do you feel about adding missing maxlength recommendations to form input fields? I use maxlength to control verbosity in free form fields. My example is a DB for a theater's costume inventory. In addition to all the descriptive fields (size, color...) I have a description field. By adding a max...

Re: CSS HTML Validator 2019 coming soon

Albert, Just noticed that when I cut/past into a validated file, the valid "green" does not disappear as when I type a character. The "**" Not-saved marker does still appear of course

On the list for later.

Re: non-breaking spaces.

Like legislating good taste. I don't think there is anything in the standards that would prevent this absurdity.

I don't see that the validator could find/catch/warn all examples of bad style. That would be a rabbit hole that could bloat the validator to something asymptotic to Windows. My 2¢

Re: CSS HTML Validator 2019 coming soon

god I love the English language! That of course was what I was trying to say. I was just noting that when you make a change, the tab is updated to show that the file has not been saved. At the same time there has been a change sense the last validation. As Churchill or Shaw said, "Two countries sepa...

Re: CSS HTML Validator 2019 coming soon

When you validate a file, and it is good, the tab turns green. When you make more changes, the status does not change, even if you save it. This gives the impression all is well. I just noticed that if if validate a good file, insert an error, and save the tab remains green. If I then reload the fil...

Re: Batch Wizard Crash

Right, and of course I do that to assure the HTML I generate is valid. The issue of course is that each screen would need to be run several times to account for each state, that would included different help links, and then extract the desired links from the largely redundant list of links. At this ...

Re: Batch Wizard Crash

The bad news is that now that everything works, I find out that the results don't provide what I wanted. Now I see that the link checking does not "see" the link in echo "<a href='./doc/Functions.html#DELETE' target='_blank'>DELETE a $value</a>"; I could of course rewrite the line to see the link an...
