Re: Use of HTML5

On that note, if there is anything specific you want improved in CSE HTML Validator , then please post it to another topic in the appropriate CSE HTML Validator forum with as much detail as you can provide and I would be happy to see if the output or checking could be improved. :D Thanks! :mrgreen:...

Re: Use of HTML5

EDIT: The post to which I'm replying seems to have changed a bit, since I originally posted this. It originally said that I had HTML5 backward. Yeah sorry I was attempting to make the rant as short as possible. I increasingly find sites that simply don't work in one of the browsers. This is not som...

Re: Use of HTML5

I have the impression that significant pieces of the web are becoming unusabale to some browsers. I think there's a wave of web developers who only develop for their preferred browser AND have convinced big companies to use their talents. HTML5 does more than just extend older versions with new fea...

Re: HTML 5 is dead?

Mary it technically right in that all current browsers have reduced their parsing/rendering modes to just HTML5 and XHTML. If you're using some older version of HTML then you're really just using a subset of HTML5 as far as the browser is concerned. This is quite nice because as a side effect you ge...

Re: Is this a big shift in search

I've come to the conclusion that a search engine that I pay for, that I control to some degree, and where I have meaningful control over the algorithm is the answer. The only way you're likely to get that kind of control is via engines that support SPARQL. I like http://sindice.com/ + http://sig.ma...

Re: Ignoring CSS Hacks for IE 6 & 7

Some "real world" examples from the widely-used YUI CSS resets: http://yui.yahooapis.com/3.3.0/build/cssreset/reset.css /*to enable resizing for IE*/ input, textarea, select { *font-size:100%; } http://yui.yahooapis.com/3.3.0/build/cssbase/base.css /* setting a consistent width, 160px; control of ty...

Re: HTML Tidy

It's a little old and not so maintained. Also huge with lots of options. It's nice for transforming a big mess into something resembling (x)html so you can finish the job with sed / some editor. If you happen to be a Vim user have a look at :h makeprg and :h equalprg for filtering a buffer through t...

Re: XHTML5

1) Previous versions of markup need a declaration. Why break the chain? Sort of. There's no denying that XHTML 1.1 conformance requirements call the DOCTYPE a "MUST", and If a document really does validate (in the true XML sense), then I'm all for making that assertion by referencing the formal def...

Re: XHTML5

Mike, there isn't a doctype specifically for XHTML5. Some sites mention that the doctype can be omitted for XHTML, while others such as Wikipedia state that <!DOCTYOE html> (case sensitive) should keep XHTML folks happy. Correct, a doctype isn't required in an XHTML5 document. Just to clarify - as ...
