Cross–column cleverness

Writing about web page

Print designers often position pictures between two columns, but it's hard to achieve a similar effect with web pages. This article outlines how it can be done, and the result is quite impressive – it's accessible to screen-readers, it copes with resizing the text to larger or smaller sizes and it validates. The only snag with it, from our point of view, is that it's a fixed-width design, and we generally try to implement liquid designs.

Extraordinary CSS

Writing about web page

This web page is an astonishing use of CSS. (Like all the Zen Garden designs, the rule is that you can do whatever you want with the CSS, but the HTML must remain unchanged.) If you look at the page in a modern, standards-compliant browser (Firefox or Safari) and scroll down to the botton, watch what happens to the scuba diver as you do so. And when you get to the bottom, if you wait a moment or two, watch for the crab that scuttles out. That's amazing; I don't begin to understand the CSS that you'd need to accomplish this.

CSS slideshows

I was interested to see the following web slideshows:-

What's impressive about them is that although they look as if they must have been done with Flash, they're not; they're pure HTML, and they validate, and the markup is semantically sensible. It works in IE6, FireFox, Opera 7.5 and – sort of – Safari, but not IE5.5, which alas makes them unusable for our purposes (although it seems that the upgrade on the managed desktop to Office XP will also update IE5.5 to IE6, so perhaps the end is finally in sight for IE5.5 at Warwick). The explanations are here [III] and here [IV].

Very clever, as are many of the other scripts at this site, such as this categorised listbox.
