Just been having a little play with alpha transparencies and event handling for customised tool tips using DHTML and CSS. Just another reason why Internet Exploder should be laid to rest!
So, here is the first run at accessible DHTML transparency tool tips. There is more to develop to make this accessible to the widest possible audience, so will hopefully come back to it
at the turn of the tide…
June 2003 Web Server Logs
June 2004 Web Server Logs
(Logs for www.severnsolutions.co.uk and its subdirectories. Un-adjusted for searchbots.)
Incontrovertible evidence for Standards Based development leading to improved SEO and accessibility. Oh, and the expansive presence generated by a pseudo-weblog archive system.
The age old problem - spam! While I patiently wait for that elusive Gmail invite, I am still running a couple of old webmail accounts that have been active for several years. I would be content to disable them except for the occassional critical email I receive. So once every 5 or 10 days I will log into the accounts and spend the best part of half an hour selecting and deleting anywhere from 1000 to 2000 spam emails just to find those few important messages. Fortunately the Inbox can display 1000 messages on a page and, accompanied by the select all button, this speeds up the process slightly, but I still have to deselect all the archived messages. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to write a boomarklet to speed things up a bit.
Of course this bookmarklet is proprietary with the DOM navigation specific (and quite cumbersome!) to the layout of my Webmail Inbox, but perhaps you may find it useful for editing to your requirements?
Note, the _ character is just a line continuation. Has made my webmail routine that bit easier, more efficient and fulfilling :)
Relates to Firefox and Co
Excellent! Live HTTP Headers is the penultimate extension update I have waited for to remove Firefox 0.8 from my desktop. A fantastic developer extension I simply can't do without when creating server side applications. The latest version has some great improvements including the ability to apply exclusion filters with regular expressions and to attach the panel to the sidebar to track headers with maximised windows.
Now I hold on for an update to the Link Toolbar, another essential tool I utilise to validate the dynamic generation of next and previous links without having to view the source.
The new extension manager, which has worked seamlessly on my Windows 98 platform, has swayed me into downloading and sampling considerably more extensions than when I was managing multiple user profiles to protect against compatibility issues. Tabbrowser Extensions was recently updated so I have can reclaim tab session memory management. I also find the Cookie Culler and Flat Bookmark Editing to be useful additions to the feature set. And lastly, for now, Jed Brown's BB Code extension is convenient for heavy forum posting - especially the clipboard features.
