  2. Flash is NOT a cure-all

    Over the years, as an intermittent Dynamic Drive Flash Guru, I have noticed a trend in utilizing Flash. This trend is one where Flash is being used in ways it probably shouldn't.

    I am here to correct a few things. First of all, let's note that Flash is a tool. Flash, by its nature was developed to be a tool marketed for designers NOT developers. Flash is not an answer, it is not a web site building machine, it is not the be-all end-all of web design. It is a tool. Macromedia created ...
  3. CSS selector wish list

    With CSS3, we have gotten many new pseudo selectors that give us a great deal of options. However, the short list of combinator selectors has only been increased from 3 to 4:
    Code:
    foo bar

  4. Get Style

    Sometimes we want to get the style of something. But, since it wasn't set inline or via javascript, or perhaps was set in a stylesheet using the:

    Code:
    !important
    keyword that overrides inline and javascript assignments, we cannot access it. Here is a fairly robust script that will allow us to do so in many cases:

       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

  5. Some Remarks about Ajax-includes using document.write

    Some Remarks about Ajax-includes using document.write

    I. Why document.write?
    Including external content with the help of document.write brings in external html AND external code (js, css). This is a clear advantage of document.write over other inclusion-methods, like innerHTML (does not execute scripts) and appendChild (does not automatically import all the external js and/or css when IE, Chrome or Opera are used). To see this, create a file external.html with some js in it, ...
