The scene:

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

The scene:

  • Grey clouds on top, light blue sky in the middle, hills underneath.
  • One bare tree in the midleft, and to the right another bare tree, with an evergreen behind and slightly farther right.
  • In the front and center, illuminated by sunlight, a tree, bright yellow with its fall leaves.

It may be rather gloomy and brown, but it is stunning.

Namespace syntax in HTML

Monday, October 9th, 2006
  1. We need namespaces in HTML.
  2. We need a syntax for declaring those namespaces in HTML.
  3. A very good, fitting syntax has already been invented for use in XML, and is understood by a significant number of authors.
  4. That syntax has been corrupted through misuse by many pages. Is it worth trying to save, or do we need a new one (or is one of the premises wrong)?
