suggests that all dogs descended from three original Eve dogs, but then the poor fellow refers to the Pug as the most noble and perfect breed. While it is true that his Jack is a handsome beast, it is certainly a stretch to consider the Pug the noblest of them all when there are Basenjis in the world. Specifically, the Basenji to the right, named Jordie.
People are funny
. In a post today, Dave Winer wrote, in Scripting News, “I am open to supporting and working with Lessig, but we need clarification and possibly a discussion with the professor on his position re copyrights for software.” But yesterday he was trashing the guy: “To Lessig, who says we’re doing nothing, up yours.” Hardly sounds like someone who is open to working with the guy, does it? With friends like these, neither Dave nor Lessig needs many enemies. Because at base, these guys are pretty much on the same side.
I had no idea
that Kinder Eggs were contraband in the US! It’s kind of funny that such inoffensive little toys are illegal. I wonder, does that make my Kinder egg habit cool and “alternative”? Heh. [via boingboing]
So with a fresh approach
I managed to get the new mikel dot org design working, more or less. But really more or less. It appears perfectly in both IE5/Mac and IE 5.5 Win. It appears OK in Netscape 6.2. The whole thing is very weird though. It started working when I commented out all the margin variables and nested the bottom two divs inside the div containing the top content (the title graphic etc.). Then I used top and left positioning to put up the main text div. Fair enough. The positioning worked OK at the top and left.
Now the funny part. I didn’t want to specify a width for the main text div, as I want the site to be perfectly fluid. When I set a right position it worked perfectly in IE 5.5/Win. It didn’t work at all in IE5/Mac. So just for kicks I put in a “margin-right” as well. Suddenly it worked perfectly in IE on both platforms (which I don’t think it should do). Only Netscape does things as I would expect, which is to start the margin x pixels over from where the right edge is supposed to be (from where “right: #px” tells it to start counting).
Anyhow, it validates as valid CSS now, and the content is very readable on the platforms that I’ve tested it on, so I’m going to implement it in the next few days. If anyone can set me straight on my CSS foibles, however, I would really appreciate it.
