RE:  Re: [ubl-dev] Technology heavy-weights consider the future
Good to know.  I have to rewrite this blog tutorial series I'm doing on X3D
sequencing using Ajax (the X3D SAI DOM) and should improve the example HTML.
It works but if the left cell set gets long, the dashboard moves with it.  I
know how to fix that but I fix one set of things at a time and getting all
of the SAI code to work with the HTML JavaScript was the first order of
business.  That is why I am sitting here with Jscript debug mode turned on.
I haven't used it in a very long time and forgot it was there.  Pretty
handy, actually, when doing a hand-rolled application, but it outs every
page I go to if I forget to turn it off.

If you have some time to kill and want to see an HTML/X3D integrated app in
basic form:


There is code in there to check for Active-X and default to FireFox for
getting the Flux X3D browser.  No viruses or spyware.

So I'll probably fix the CSS as best as I can but I don't think I will test
that as completely.  Certification costs for web apps must be miserable. 


Great Lies of Software Development: I told our equity investor owners how I
was keeping customers happy by adding features while simultaneously reducing
costs.  So now I have this very long nose, Father.

Even when you conform it doesn't work. I test everything on Firefox and 
IE 6 for javascript and css errors. Once the errors are gone, one then 
has to deal with the imponderable of the layout engines ...

And while I'm on it, my nuisance of the week is the the css "float" 
option. We all know that we should use divs instead of tables for layout 
control (sic) which is fine, except that divs with a style "float:right" 
have to be written in reverse order (ie the right hand one first, the 
one just to the left of it etc and finally the stuff that's floating 
around them ... that is not intuitive, not even sure it's *WELL* documented)

wrong list i know, but the subject is standards writing, interpretation, 
and conformance
