    This is pretty obvious, I suppose. I decided to post it anyway.
    The standard way of getting PHP output into a HTML file (that you don't want to give the PHP extension) is to configure the server to interpret HTML files as PHP. But your web host may not support the htaccess file(s) needed for this. No worries, there's a client side way of getting PHP output into HTML. Just put the following lines where you want the output to display in your HTML file (and don't forget to reference the jQuery ...
  2. Simple Sweep-in News Scroller (CSS3/JS)

    I've recently been working on digital signage displays for a school (scheduled web pages displayed on 42" TV screens) so I thought I'd write a short blog post to show you the mechanics of how their news and updates are presented on the screens.

  5. Iframes on iOS
