Statistics on use of DTD's

Has anyone got statistics indicating the use of the different DTD's in web pages.

They might be:

Not Declared
...
XHTML 1.0 Transitional
...
XHTML 1.0 Frameset
XHTML 1.1

etc.

If not actual statistics has anyone got a tool, maybe a Turnabout/Trixie/Greasemonkey based logger?

Why use Lite?

Hi Albert, Thanks for that. I'll make a note of it for future. As to why use it, my situation is clear cut. (It may not be as atypical as I first thought. What web site owner doesn't want to put himself in the shoes of a savvy user??) I'm looking at ways that other people judge web sites. In that pr...

Compare to Firefox

With Firefox the issue is the opposite (in a way). The extension gives only Lite, see other thread.

Picking your version of CSE when using Firefox

I've installed the tool that integrates CSE into Firefox. It installed with Lite when I have both Lite and Professional installed. (That suits me at present as I want to know what the general public might see.) How do I most easily (no installation gymnastics) switch the linkage to another version o...

Tidy has it's limits

There are things that Tidy seems unable to do. (I last ran through it some time ago, I've done this maybe 4 times over the life of tidy, I've spent a few hours, so I'm pretty sure.) My conclusion is that tidy settings interact with each other and that at least one setting changes two different thing...

Making CSE Lite show for IE Edit button

Short Description: I have both CSE and CSE Lite installed (both latest). The both have registry entries (Hive...Classes...) for .htm which appear correct (...shell/edit/command...). ONLY CSE Professional shows in the Edit list from the IE toolbar. How do I also make Lite appear there? Background Des...

It's a matter of balance

Hi Albert, Thanks for that. At present I suspect most users are happy with the standard packaged functionality. I can see feeds being part of a wider structure, which differs between publishers. Demand would be higher, in that world. (A lot of bloggers have never published before and are delighted w...

RSS validation

I've currently dropped using a tool to generate RSS. I'm finding it hard inspecting by eye. I've seen other people asking about an RSS checker.

Are there any plans to incorporate a feed checker in future?

Hi,

I generally try to steer clear of interop. The automated tools assume an interface with IDispatch etc. There are other ways to use DLL's, but I'm not going to explore that immediately.

I was hoping for work already done.

The standard interfaces look like the immediate answer.

Thanks very much. 1) Programming programexport. I have had another look . With that page and the code I can do what I want. (I was hoping for a lazy man's way to see what variables are in scope at some point in code.) 3) See email. 5) I was looking for some accessibility messages which (I guess) are...

I spent a few minutes with the type library export tool (in .NET) it didn't recognise the DLL. Worth the effort though.

Hi Albert, Time is the critical thing (for fixing markup). If you're going to XHTML there is a fair amount of code out there (I've only had a look at some .NET and Java material, but I'm sure there's more than that). Even with that it can take time to implement exactly what you need. If you're gener...

Thanks for that.

My intuitive expectation was that markup is parsed the same whether commented or not. (I've switched off spell checking within comments.)

Using the CSE DLL from .NET

I see there is documentation for using the CSE DLL from C and there is a COM wrapper.

Has anyone produced a .NET interop assembly?

(I'm most interested in an official PIA, Primary Interop Assembly, rather than a no name brand assembly.)

Spell Check issue

I tested a page (integrated browser) and got a spurious spelling error. This originated in a commented out section which structurally is like: <!-- <div id="DE52b56055-92fc-4e7a-9967-58bd3204e5d1" class="IdentifiedAsSpellingError"><h3>Processing</h3></div> --> The spell checker identified each insta...
