Improving an XML feed

filed under: @ 11:50:05

On Xefteri:

improving an XML feed display through CSS and XSLT

Not a bad idea, even if I think most people gets the RSS feeds through aggregators or Live Bookmarks on Firefox.

Javascript and nodeType(s)

filed under: @ 14:08:41

Found today:

and this could be a convenient solution.

Fonts and Javascript triggers

filed under: @ 19:24:22

I found a good article on fonts on the New York Times.

I had a doubt, after taking all my Javascript calls off the XHTML, about using the class attribute to determine the behaviour of each link. Now that same doubt is being discussed. I know about DTDs because I'm interested in XML and I have written DTDs before. I'll follow the discussion and see where it goes..

More about DTD:

One of the problems I'm having using XML is that I almost always have code samples included in the text of my studies and I have to use entities for everything. I'd rather use a TEXT file and parse it with document.innerHTML, much simpler and faster. Maybe is not very professional or reusable in the future (even if I think TEXT files will always be in use) as an XML file would be but it works fine.
