Early-March Link Dump
- Dead Eyes Open
- The first two chapters are free to download, and I quite like the toetags idea.
- Publicises the progress of UK Freedom of Information requests.
- Killing Some Bad Layout Conventions
- I’ve never been a fan of symmetrical 3-column layouts, so it’s good to see someone give them a sound kicking.
- Google Maps Without the Scripting
- You can now embed Google’s maps as static images, but you can only use coordinates so addresses have to be geocoded first.
- Π Is Wrong!
- I remember wondering about this at school.
- Flips style sheet properties to help with creating right-to-left layouts (Wikipedia is still the best example of this kind of thing in action).
- Defiant Dog
- 12.32 clicks per visit?! Wow, I’d have expected maybe 3 or 4 at most.
- Microsoft’s Interoperability Principles and IE8
- They changed their minds, and now developers will only have to add a
metatag if they want to trigger IE7-style rendering. It’s worth visiting the page simply to experience the novelty of an IEBlog post getting several hundred positive comments.
- A new typography term
- Very clever.
- garfield minus garfield
