Re: Insight into designing browsers to accomodate bad markup

I didn't find an email link to Frank Olivier in the article (quick check). Might be worth contacting him to check whether the "common faults" are published / available somewhere.

Insight into designing browsers to accomodate bad markup

Here's an interesting article. Gives some insight into compromises to allow the most common errors. Too common to ignore. (They seem to be well and truly down this rabbit hole.)

Validator User Functions: Writing a header

Hi,

I'm writing a file with content created in "onMessageAdded" events.

I'd like to add a header row as the first entry in that file.

Which event should I use to do that? (I've tried onStartValidation and find that some comments are added before this event fires.)

Re: Changing validator user functions file programmatically

Yep, I'm thinking of the Validator code.

That export option is an excellent solution. I like that.

Changing validator user functions file programmatically

Hi, I'm considering automating some work with CSE, using the batch wizard. Part of it involves customised validator user functions code, for each batch. I'm not sure how best to achieve this. The user function files are set in a GUI then saved, and I don't see that setting in a veo file , which othe...

List types capitalisation issue

With html ordered lists it's possible to set the list character like this <ol type="A">. When doing this a is not the same as A . The validator gives this message for the above sample "In XHTML, enumerated attribute values are case-sensitive and must be lowercase. Instead of "A", use "a". This is in...

Re: Award for big sites with terrible HTML?

I've seen something like the hugely nested markup at the top of the page before. It came from a WYSIWYG editor wielded by somebody who delighted in applying the same markup again and again to a piece of text. (Confirmed my belief in WYSIWYN!) Hmmm. Boston University, Office of University Relations. ...

Re: A milestone (of sorts) reached in web specifications

I guess that some people who were foolishly hoping for adequate progress, may pause to think. The web might "fork". Some content defined as an improved XHTML with decent widgets and the ability to express things that HTML 5 fails to imagine . Would be interesting, and the current "system" has certai...

A milestone (of sorts) reached in web specifications

I see that some sort of agreement http://j.mp/1u9aHCb has been reached in the broken specification process that currently plagues XHTML definition!

Re: How to switch on SVG specific CSS attributes / propertie

Hi Albert.

Beta installed and initial tests run.

Looks good. Accepted all the SVG specific CSS properties used in that page.

Thanks Albert.

I found the properties already in the configuration so I assumed.

Re: How to switch on SVG specific CSS attributes / propertie

Yep SVG is active, in Categories. (After looking through configuration I decided to ask the question rather than attempt to edit it.) I reproduced the problem using the SVG at http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e8/BlankMap-World6-Equirectangular.svg I embedded this directly in a page, m...

How to switch on SVG specific CSS attributes / properties

I'm currently re-investigating using SVG on pages. (For example http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Blank_SVG_maps_of_the_world , which is a public domain world map.) When validating with version 14.05, some attributes / properties are not recognised. For example fill-opacity, stroke, stroke-...

Re: HTTPS

That SSLTest link is great. (The last time I used it, I'm pretty sure it wasn't this good, thanks for the update.) An ISP injecting JavaScript is insane . I can't believe that anybody, who had a clue what he was doing, would even try that. When your ISP is that much of an enemy we really need to mov...
