eugene ts wong's Journal: EHTML: 1.1 7

Journal by eugene ts wong

This version allows you the benefits of the start attribute for ol and value attribute for li. This is better because sometimes a list item isn't 1, A, a or some such thing, and you shouldn't need style sheets to change it. This is a content issue, not a styling issue.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/lists.html#h-10.2 for more information. They are deprecated according to those standards, but I undeprecated it.

Comments? Questions?

Any requests for better standards? I'm planning on a 2.0 version soon, and perhaps even a GeoCities web site to be the home for this project. It just depends on if anybody is interested in using it. 1.* will differ from 2.* in that 1.* will always try to use features which are already available in modern browsers, while 2.* will plug ahead and create new standards that aren't available yet. This means that in the future, when new features are added to browsers, then I'll be most interested in incorporating them into 1.*. Both will use the standard HTML rules for elements. 3.* will begin to use XHTML rules.

  • Enhanced HTML I guess, but still, why do we need yet ANOTHER standard?

    Text is text is text. Print out information, plug along any neccesary pictures, be done with it already.

    Bleck.

    The most advanced feature any of my HTML uses is tables. ^_^
  • Hey I read in your other journal entry that you are teaching math now. I couldn't reply there 'cause the discussion was archived. So I'll just say it here: congratulations! I think that's great! So who are you teaching, and where at!?!
    • Hi Starcub!

      I was just thinking about you this morning, as I was reflecting on the types of people around the journal circle. I don't seem to recall seeing you get into these horrible presidential debates. That's a good thing. I'm getting tired of slashdot.

      I'm teaching adults who want to go back to school to get their diplomas. I'm only teaching 2 women right now. I see 1 student on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the other 1 on Wednesdays. It's all being done under Vancouver's public school system. I go into
      • Yeah, I got quite a bit a 'campaign material' from my dad who is very much a republican. Unlike the previous few presidential elections, this one was easy for me, as I suspect it was for most practicing Christians.

        Yikes! You're teaching adults factoring and fractions?! What kind of diploma are they trying to get!? Sounds like a real challenge, especially when they don't want to show up for 1 on 1's. On the plus side (no pun intended), it's a great opportunity to learn the wide variety of ways differ

          Some of the students at the school are just starting high school math. Other students are much farther ahead.

          Sounds like a real challenge, especially when they don't want to show up for 1 on 1's.

          Yeah, that's true. Things have started to settle down, though, and the students that I'm working with are coming consistently or are calling ahead.

          • Ask the other ESL teacher if he's planning a trip. Tell him not to send you any postcards ;)

            It's good to hear you're enjoying tutoring. Thanks for the advice too, I'll keep you posted if I decide to take you up on it.
