Isofarro is a regular on alt.html and a number of other web-centric newsgroups. We mostly read his postings, then go back and correct what we were to post. -- Jerry Muelver
Three Rules of Web Development:
- Trust only the server
- Test in as many browsers you or your friends can muster (at least 4 different browsers)
- http://www.w3c.org - a very dry and technical site, but crammed with information about valid html.
- http://www.htmlhelp.com - one of the finest HTML web authoring web collaboration ventures ever. A very comprehensive FAQ, lots of knowledge.
- http://www.pagetutor.com - the best introduction to HTML. Learn it from the ground up.
- http://www.vortex-webdesign.com/help - alt.html's JH's web resources, quick guides to useful topics like password protecting directories, image mouseovers, and hiding source code.
Isofarro sez: The toys I'm play with:
- Currently playing around with XML and XSL in my spare time, finding an XSL engine that will work with Perl so I can build the "DIY-GUI" website that someone will finish a few days before me.
- Directory of web developer resources - looks like wiki beat me to it....
- accumulating material for the updated alt.html FAQ - up to 150 questions so far
- PORTALS! I'm getting very interested in the mechanics of portals, and how to create one that's useful for webdevelopers -- I'm writing my own portal infrastructure at the moment in PHP (yeah I know php-Nuke is great - but its a learning thing.). So far, I'm looking to incorporate the content management system, postit-notes, the directory and the FAQ into it - so it becomes a WebDeveloper desktop - also thinking of adding in a wiki, as a freeform note based system/ web based CMS.... so the portal needs to have a flexible "plugin" interface for module-based applications.
Bodidily: I found this on the W3 Validator. Is it one of your inventions Iso?
"Added support for ISO-HTML (October 18, 2000)"
Iso: *ROTFLMAO* I can only hope :-)
