CSS 2.1 is now an offical web standard:
HTML5 has moved to the ‘last call’ stage:
All details included in my revised analysis
….my site has correctly validated in HTML5!
Good information for anyone who needs some assistance with fine tuning their scenarios :
The document is from my Interaction Design module so the information is sound.
Forgot to write about this last week. Due to the ‘rel’ tag contained in my Fancy Box code my HTML file would not validate. The below message was displayed for each of my images:
Bad value group1 for attribute rel on element a: Keyword group1 is not registered.
Each of the images contained the code – ‘rel = group1’. This code is essential to keep the images in predefined galleries. Without it the user cannot scroll between images, they must return to the gallery and make a new selection.
While investigating, with the help of Viveka and Oanh, I discovered there is only a small amount of appropriate/registered rel values for HTML5.
‘Group’ is not appropriate rel value in HTML5. Therefore, I changed the rel value to ‘external’ which is still a relevant to my site and more importantly registered. After this change my page validated without a problem.
I’m assuming Fancy Box haven’t yet updated their code for the HTML5 specification. Hence, this small issue.
Does anyone have any experience with web fonts??? Are they hard to implement?
Just looking to add the final polish to my site : )
Where did everyone find their profile pictures for the user personas? I haven’t added any images to my draft System Plan. I couldn’t find any free people images and I’m certainly not paying for the privilege….
I understand people may have used personal photographs but I don’t appear to have any suitable photographs.
Thought I would share this great resource I’ve found on browser compatibility :
Below is what I experienced when I attempted to open my project in Firefox 3 during class:
My project is a vertical scrolling site so as you can imagine I was in a state of panic when the page loaded. The red boxes are firebug trying to dissect the site.
After some research and some vital assistance from Oanh I realised HTML5 tags are not fully supported in version 3 of FireFox… my sites uses section tags ….. relief!!
Some useful resources on the subject:
If you’re experimenting with HTML5 I would recommend asking Viveka and Oanh to view your site in a supporting browser e.g. Firefox 4, Chrome or Safari
