Wouldn't that be great. No more mp4s and streaming downloads. Just the transcript, right there.
Maybe online speech recognition will one day be up to it. It's so primitive and so tied to particular voices, now, one can't hope to use such tools in that way.
It is kind of a 'grail', auto-transcription as opposed to specific dictation.
It's a good idea, where possible. But this great 'script divide' was somewhat noticeable in 2007. I doubt it will be as great in 2008
On older browsers, you couldn't nest past a certain level. Ideally, the complicated sliced tables use row and col spans, and not a lot of nested tables. But how easy are a bunch of non-intuitive row and col span placements going to be? I think what you see, now, is less of the old sliced tables, and more Flash doing the same sort of thing.
Some don't even like the idea of table, being a presentation tool as they see it. It's the ambiguity of HTML.
This is ridiculous. Write the page you want to write. Period. You know your audience. What is - simple? Write what you want, how you want.
Again, set up as you like. If someone doesn't like, they can ctrl-mousewheel to change font size.
Not alternates - fixer sheets, like one needs for IE. So the main style is still used, but is overriden in part by selection of a 'plain text' sort of thing, or whatever alternate. You can use a number of "!important" overrides. You could even do the entire thing using script and the open-ended arguments property to efficiently modify the classes directly in script, with very few function calls.
Extremely useful, particularly as ones MAIN method of site navigation. It's easy to back out. It's difficult to get back to a specific page. A site map, or series of linked site maps, gets you where you want to go - VERY quickly.
