  • Internet Explorer is the new Netscape 4 (14 October 2005)

    Why does this site look different in Internet Explorer and in a modern browser? Because there comes a time when you have to learn to let go. Here’s how the revelation came to me, a few Sundays ago around midnight.

  • Resolution-dependent layout with Javascript (13 October 2005)

    Cameron Adams is a clever guy. To accomodate thevariety of screen sizes we have nowadays, what about a touch of Javascript to switch stylesheets? Clever.

  • ALA’s Print Styles explained extensively (21 September 2005)

    A detailed explanation of ALA’s new print CSS. Where it’s said that floating elements in a print CSS is asking for trouble. Good. It’s what I told Odin four weeks ago, that’s comforting. (Via MDC Webwatch)

  • Web standards will be adopted if we force them through (14 September 2005)

    Keith Robinson explains that, basically, customers couldn’t care less about standards. So we should stop grumping about the lack of them and start rolling up our sleeves: it won’t work if we don’t do it.

  • Rounded corners without extraneous markup, thanks to the DOM (11 September 2005)

    We were talking about such a method a few weeks ago at work, and never took the time to implement it.

  • Work/Life Balance (29 June 2005)

    Dan Cederholm has a sad thing to say about when things get off-balance. Here’s to hoping that everything is amendable.

  • How can governments help accessibility? (20 June 2005)

    Andy Clarke said during atmedia that legislation on disability is dangerous ground indeed, and he’s expanding his thoughts here about ways to help without being so bluntly legal (and, come to think of it, Joe Clark pointed out that some WCAG aren’t even possible for a governement website, like content concise, clear, intelligible by anyone).
    Subsidising training courses is a great idea, period.

  • Ten things to keep in mind while in London (8 June 2005)

    Tonight I’ll be in London, and tomorrow it’s atmedia 2005. I can’t wait. But knowing myself as I do, here are ten rules I know I should abide to when I get there: Don’t show off as a French guy in the streets of London, especially when the station you arrive at is called Waterloo (France and England have a long history). Stop asking for directions every second street: start learning to read maps instead of bothering people (yes, even if you take gret pleasure in speaking english: people have (...)

  • The job of a front-end developer: a must-read (1 June 2005)

    Chris Heilmann sums up what makes our job so hard and so fun at the same time. "Programmers don’t accept your work as real code, and designers don’t consider it design." The fun is, among others, "To work with design and backend and project managers to make sure the customer gets something that is looking good and works fast and reliable."

  • Tori Amos in Paris in June and I’m not going. (27 April 2005)

    Tori Amos will be in Paris in June. Oh yes, I should be pleased that the diva comes to France. In a way, I am.
    Yet of all concert halls she chose the Zenith. My gosh.
    I saw her the last time she came, with my good friend Kidy (yes, one ’d’ only, but it’s pronounced ’kiddy’). And it was not good. I’m not blaming the singer of course, and why should I? She was as good and sexy and energetic as ever. But this concert hall had such an echo one felt as though in a covered market place.
    Not good, I (...)

  • Symbolizing accessibility: redoing an icon (17 January 2005)
