2006 first half-year review
Here in the faraway Sweden, not quite as close to the North Pole as some believe, we have this long-standing tradition of taking a really long vacation during our short but beautiful summer. For the last few years I have been following this tradition, and I will do so this year as well.
That means there will be very little activity here until my five week vacation is over at the end of July. There may be the occasional Quicklink, but don’t expect a whole lot to happen. I’ll try to stay away from the computer and spend my time reading books, working in the garden, going fishing, and being lazy in general.
So I’ll see you in August, although posting will most likely be somewhat less regular since I am starting on a fairly large side-project (more on that later) that will take up some time. I’ll do my best to keep it from intruding too much on my writing.
So what’s with the first half-year review thing in the title? It refers to this list of links to some of the most popular articles I’ve written so far this year, in chronological order:
- CSS 3 selectors explained
- The myth of the overpriced Mac
- Writing cross-browser CSS
- Validity does not equal best practices
- New clearing method needed for IE7?
- Content Management Systems used by public sector websites found lacking
- Alt text is an alternative, not a tooltip
- Indicating language choice: flags, text, both, neither?
- Evaluating website accessibility
- ONOFF: another failed redesign
- Microsoft and Internet Explorer vs. web standards
- A letter from WASP-EduTF to Skolverket
- WCAG 2 disregards Web standards
- Levels of HTML knowledge
- Why is the style attribute allowed in strict doctypes?
I’m leaving comments on for now, so feel free to keep the discussions going.
