Conversations with the X/HTML 5 team
There is an interesting interview with the X/HTML 5 team overhere.
The things I'm most hoping for will end up in the final spec are the improved input elements and the datagrid, but that might be because for those two I can most clearly envision how they will improve my work as a webdeveloper (less client side scripting needed, hurray!). It would not surprise me that in the end the things that mean less to me now will change the web most, like the vague activex component some company from Redmond introduced for their Outlook webclient, which now is the foundation to AJAX.

Help; Can I see what rendering mode Internet Explorer uses?
I'm trying to build sites that will work in both Internet Explorer 6 and 7, and in more standards compliant browsers. It helps alot if Internet Explorer is not using Quirks mode for those sites, but I can't find where I can see what mode it uses, and thus I'm never really sure about the mode it has chosen to render.
Does anyone know how I could find that out?

W3C helping (?)to standardise AJAX
The W3C is going to try and help standardise AJAX, see The XMLHttpRequest Object, W3C Working Draft 05 April 2006 I really hope that it'll work, and with Anne van Kesteren doing the groundwork I feel almost confident, but as with other W3C or in general, commitee driven developement, we'll have to wait and see. update: I just noticed MSFT is not in the authors section yet, that wont help. Did you know they *invented* the damned thing in the first place?

Great Javascripting
Now, why aren't more people using this great javascript? I mean, buttons that *resize* depending on how long the *scrolling* text is, it is so 1996 that it must be the in thing today!

Web design and standards

it's been a while, I promise to blog some more in 2006, a happy new year to you all btw :-)

The things I want to point you to today are of a webdesign nature.

First there is the Web Standards Group, a site with a great mailinglist and other resources for web builders who are determined to making the web work, for everyone.

The mailinglist that belongs to the webstandardsgroup has a cool weekly mail called 'light reading', featuring some links that are well, light reading about webdesign. That list has now also been archived on the web.

Lastly I would like to point out that the very excellent webdeveloper extention for Firefox has been released in a 1.0 version. Whilst your on that site, you also want to install the useragent switcher to avoid the 'only for IE' crap that some 'webdevelopers' force upon you .
