Show Love to the Object Literal | Core JavaScript 1.5 Guide:Literals

Defining an object is via literal notation. Supported in JavaScript1.2 and above, it’s a more robust form of creating an object on the fly.
Neat and clean approach to write reusable, readable and maintainable JavaScript code.

Object literals beauty lies in Namespaces, which reduces the number of global variables in your pages. It uses a technique known as branching, which allows you to use common utility

Working draft of HTML5

Are you ready for next gen HTML5 with DOM interface?

I am amazed even removing iframe from XHTML 1.0 “strict mode” they have included it once again in HTML5 with better control.

For the lovers of Web Forms 2.0:

Design a form that uses autocompletion (intellisense for me) like we do using AJAX (not up to that) could work in simple HTML elements.

Example:

<input type="url" name="location" list="urls"/>
<datalist id="urls">
<option label="MIME: Format of Internet Message Bodies" value="http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2045">
</option><option label="HTML 4.01 Specification" value="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/">
</option><option label="Form Controls" value="http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/slice8.html#ui-commonelems-hint">
</option><option label="Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.1 Specification" value="http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/">
</option><option label="Feature Sets - SVG 1.1 - 20030114" value="http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/feature.html">
</option><option label="The Single UNIX Specification, Version 3" value="http://www.unix-systems.org/version3/">
</option></datalist>

…if user type ‘www.w3’, and UA* had found that it’s already had visited http://www.w3.org/Consortium/#membership and http://www.w3.org/TR/XForms/ in the recent.

There are many more, surly you will love it as I am.

What are Web Standards?

The term web standards can mean different things to different people. For some, it is ‘table-free sites’, for others it is ‘using valid code’. However, web standards are much broader than that. A site built to web standards should adhere to standards (HTML, XHTML, XML, CSS, XSLT, DOM, MathML, SVG etc.) and pursue best practices (valid code, accessible code, semantically correct code, user-friendly URLs etc.).

In other words, a site built to web standards should ideally be lean, clean, CSS-based, accessible, usable and search engine friendly. Read More

IE7 vs. Web Standards

I know that not every user agent going to supported most of the current web standards including DOM level 2, but opera’s people promise that. As said by David Storey in his article at Web Standards Group http://webstandardsgroup.org/features/david-storey.cfm

I don’t think so IE would be coming up with all supported tags in IE7, then what will happen when more then half of the user’s all around the world using IE? Read More
