The correct way of using conditional comments

Some people, like Jens Meiert, have argued that using conditional comments to fix layout bugs for IE is wrong. For those of you who don’t know what they are, check out my article on conditional comments. I on the other hand, think that it’s the only proper way of working around IE CSS bugs. If…

FeedRoll

Today I finished up my work on FeedRoll, a site which offers a widget to show RSS feeds on your site. I’ve fixed several things on it, yet the most fun came today. There was a colorpicker on it before that only worked on Internet Explorer 5 and up, and nothing else… Now, those of…

Sortable table script updated to v1.5.5

I got an email from Mozilla’s director of product management Sherman Dickman today, that my sortable table script wasn’t sorting numbers above 1 million which have comma’s in them correctly (they do have a lot of Firefox downloads ;) ). The problem was caused by the fact that replace only replaced items once, where they…

As usual, Technorati walks ahead of the pack

They “invented” blogsearch, and did a LOT for the webdevelopment and blogging community. Now Technorati, it turns out, is working on the microformats search I asked for only two articles ago (it was there before that, I just didn’t know about it)… Check it out in Technorati’s Kitchen.

This was suggested today on the uf-discuss mailing list, a mailing list I’ve been lurking on for quite a…

Sortable table v1.5

I’ve just updated my sortable table script to version 1.5, in which it is fixed to work in Safari for Mac OS X 10.4 as well, (I didn’t even know that it wasn’t working in there since it always worked in the nightly). I’m now taking new feature requests for this script, so hit me…

FeedBurner history comparison

When I was working on my FeedBurner history graph tool, I thought it would be cool to be able to display the growth of a blog relative to some other blog as well, so i came up with the idea of “just” plotting a few other lines next to each other, showing how they performed…

FeedBurner down?

As I logged in to my Mint stats this morning, I saw that FeedBurner had registered 0 feedreaders for both yoast.com and www.css3.info. Now I know for a fact that that isn’t true, and indeed, one the support forums it seems that more people have this problem. Update: it seems this problem was solved within…
