sIFR 2.0b: Come Kick the Tires
A beta version of Scalable Inman Flash Replacement 2.0 is now available. Mike Davidson explains what’s new in sIFR 2.0b: Come Kick the Tires. I haven’t had a reason to take a really close look at Flash Replacement before, but this is looking pretty good.
I only have a couple of concerns. One is that replaced text doesn’t scale with the rest of the page when the user increases text size. I can’t see a way around that. I also don’t believe this to be a huge problem if only headlines are replaced, and they are made reasonably large.
application/xhtml+xml, which is very interesting, since I do just that on a few sites. I haven’t had the time to test it yet though.
