  2. Lightbox Bad, SlimBox Good

    The title overstates the point. Both these scripts in their latest versions are pretty darn good as are many of the other Lightbox type scripts out there (see end for two others or Google Lightbox for more, though not all are as good as those mentioned here, many including the original Lightbox mentioned in the title of this blog entry are).

    Here's the real story -

    Some time ago Dynamic Drive's Lightbox by Lokesh Dhakar was added to the Dynamic Drive official scripts. ...

  3. Updating Menu scripts for iPad/iPhone and Android devices

    Mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone or Android tablets are pretty on par with modern desktop browsers when it comes to rendering JavaScript, though that's not to say they do so without hiccups.

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 ...
  5. 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
    foo>bar
    foo+bar
    foo~bar
    The first combinator is the most used selector and selects any element bar that is a descendant of foo. The second combinator selects any element bar that is a child (direct descendant) of foo. The third combinator selects any element bar that is an adjacent ...
