  • joecrawford.com, 2012. With Bootstrap.
    Yesterday I modified my site joecrawford.com. I purchased the domain in 1999 thinking that it would be important to have a more “professional” domain than “artlung.” I go back and forth about the utility of that. Back in 2011 sometime, I decided to remove most of the ways to contact me, and remove the self…

  • Sixty Out of Ninety-One
    Sadly, they inserted a hidden link to some dumb dating site into the HTML they generate. Boo! … Quiz was fun though.
  • <birthday number=”5years”>XML</birthday>; Thoughts on HTML’s Popularity
    From XML at Five from xml.com: Rick Jelliffe … criticized XHTML: “HTML thrived on being more forgiving of missing tags than even SGML allowed. Throwing that away makes HTML a lot less attractive. Which is true of markup in general, actually.” With which I wholeheartedly agree. HTML is supposedly the most common electronic document type…
  • Instant addition to the sidebar: ADVOGATO
    Dang. Ever have a moment of realization like “Where have I been to have missed this?” While I’ve been nattering on about about xhtml vs. html; tables vs. CSS for layout; PostGRE or MySQL or Oracle or SQL Server; Advogato has been discussing things of real importance. Check a few recent entries: Trust Metrics (which…
  • Old Home Weekend
    I’ve been thinking about my old job, Jamison/Gold Interactive (no link, they got bought by a big IT Company and crumpled up and blew away) a lot lately. They were a boutique web outfit in Los Angeles, and did excellent Web/Interactive Design. Some news on some of the participants in that place: Brett Walker, Designer,…

    inspired by a discussion on the WebSanDiego.org list: my favorite html tags are <strike>[+] and <nobr>[+]

    Messing about with a scheme to navigate the headers. Edging towards bits of dhtml in scattered locations. The HTML validates, too. But not the CSS.

    About the W3C’s New Patent Policy which is getting so much attention these days. I think you’re right. At some point several years ago a whole battery of folks were mad enough about the mess of standards support that we formed the Web Standards Project. I think that that kind of grassroots development was something…

    My wife has an online diary! voz37.diaryland.com is the address. Somehow, despite being married to me, she has show little serious interest in blogging or keeping a diary – but I think she may be hooked after seeing and enjoying other peoples’ journals. Also, after having had no interest in anything to do with code…

    I put this in the lab because I don’t know where else to put it — HTML 2.0 – An exploration!. The idea here is an exercise in web authoring, 1996-style. Just some pointers to the original specs, and brief ruminations on how it’s a little different.
  • linklint is one of a very few perfect
    linklint is one of a very few perfect pieces of software around. By which I mean that it does what it sets out to do with a minimum of fuss. I have been using it since at least 1998 to wrangle the links in large static html sites. The author, Jim Bowlin, has put the…
