HTML5 Please - Use the new and shiny responsibly

HTML5 Please - Use the new and shiny responsibly
Every individual in Florida needs a number of types of insurance either by law or for peace of mind. But it’s also important for a number of them to have Florida business insurance too. Without this, their whole company could end up becoming quite the liability over night. Business Insurance The truth, however, is that business insurance actually refers to at least four separate versions. It’s believed that having these four types of insurance will sufficiently protect your business (though this is a general rule and you may have to do some research on your specific company’s needs).

X11 color names In computing, on the X Window System, X11 color names are represented in a simple text file, which maps certain strings to RGB color values. It is shipped with every X11 installation, hence the name, and is usually located in <X11root>/lib/X11/rgb.txt. The web colors list is descended from it. The list does not show continuity either in selected color values or in color names, and many color triplets have multiple names. Despite this, graphic designers and others got used to them, making it practically impossible to introduce a different list. HTML5 Presentation In March 1936, an unusual confluence of forces occurred in Santa Clara County. A long cold winter delayed the blossoming of the millions of cherry, apricot, peach, and prune plum trees covering hundreds of square miles of the Valley floor. Then, unlike many years, the rains that followed were light and too early to knock the blossoms from their branches. Instead, by the billions, they all burst open at once. Seemingly overnight, the ocean of green that was the Valley turned into a low, soft, dizzyingly perfumed cloud of pink and white. Uncounted bees and yellow jackets, newly born, raced out of their hives and holes, overwhelmed by this impossible banquet.

A Beginner’s Guide To jQuery-Based JSON API Clients Are you fascinated by dynamic data? Do you go green with envy when you see tweets pulled magically into websites? Trust me, I’ve been there. How to Create an Awesome Scrolling Navigation using jQuery - thebeebs I was looking over the .net award nominees this week and stumbled across the flipboard.com website. I loved the scrolling navigation so much I just had to open up visual studio and try and recreate it myself. DemoView Demo The main thing flipboard do differently is to have the logo and logo background elements move at different animation speeds from each other and the main content. This effect is is similar to Parallex scrolling and gives the website more interest, depth and flair. I’ve documented the main steps to recreate my demo below:

glossy.js (javascript glossy image effect) <form name="lst" id="lst" method="post" action=".. glossy.js 1.8 allows you to add corners and shading and shadow to images on your webpages (alternatively: corner.js). It works in all the major browsers - Mozilla Firefox 1.5+, Opera 9+, Safari and IE6+. On older browsers, it'll degrade and your visitors won't notice a thing.CVI-lab: Get a fast impression of the effects and their illustration qualities. HTML5 differences from HTML4 Abstract HTML is the core language of the World Wide Web. The W3C publishes HTML5 and HTML5.1. The WHATWG publishes HTML, which is a rough superset of W3C HTML5.1. Build an Infinite Scrolling Photo Banner With HTML and CSS Today we’re going to embark on the challenge of creating an animated banner of photos that automatically scrolls horizontally through an infinite loop. The best part: we’re going to do it without a single line of JavaScript. To make this banner truly useful, our goal will be to use individual photos dropped into our HTML, not simply one long CSS background that repeats. This is pretty tricky but we’ll walk you through exactly how it works. Let’s get started! The Idea

HTML5: seriously, it's not just for video In a way, HTML5 has been reduced to a buzzword. You hear a lot of noise about how great it is for video, and how the web standard is an alternative to Flash content, but you don't see a whole lot of examples of that. We thought we'd take a moment and round up some of the cooler, more exciting instances of HTML5 online -- sites and experiments that go way beyond just playing someone's home movies. We're talking 8-bit gaming, some really crazy video effects, and a handful of incredibly interesting ways designers are maximizing the potential of the everyone's favorite new toy. Understanding HTML5 Content Models Earlier this week we looked at the new text-level and structural semantic elements html5 provides. Today I want to continue and talk about content models in html5, specifically the new outline algorithm for creating hierarchy. Once again much of the content below comes to me via Jeremy Keith‘s book HTML5 for Web Designers, which I highly recommend. Unfortunately some of what we’ll look at below isn’t yet supported by browsers. Some of it will be, but not all.
