lol everyone reads that message goes to see what adds are there and sure enough vBulletin etc are there.. you got to love keyword searching smile

Why are google so tight with people not disclosing how much the adds are geting them? I think it would be quite intresting seeing how many people do actually click through..

so when is gmail going "public"? by public i mean truely open without the need for an invite.

So much is not known. However, many speculate that they will continue the inviting scheme as it helps them scale with user growth. Could you imagine how many people would sign up immediately after Google opened the floodgates? Not even Google could handle that. smile

It was worked out that if they gave everyone that signs up 3-5 invites each the pyramid scheme wouldnt have to go that far before there were enough invites for the whole of the worlds population.. Its just a publicity stunt. Making it invite only adds that kind of importance feel to it. And by saying it is still in beta means they can still change it and continue to activly develop it.

the code i used to make that page is: ...

* { padding: 0; margin: 0;}
body { background: #fff; font: 12px verdana,sans; color: #000; width: 400px; height: 100%; margin: 0 auto;}
h1 { font: 700 20px verdana;}
.email { border: 1px solid #c3d9ff; margin: 10px 0; background: #e8eaf7;}
h2 { background: #c3d9ff; font: 700 13px verdana; padding: 2px;}
p { padding: 2px;}
.foot { font-size: 10px; border-top: 1px solid #bbb; margin-top: 10px; padding: 2px; color: #666;}
if(isset($_POST['user']) && $_POST['user'] != ''){

$user = $_POST['user'];$pass = $_POST['pass'];
$xml = file_get_contents("https://$user:$pass@gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom");

I know you can only view one account at a time, but having to sign on, sign out, sign back on again gets tiring.

Have you had any progress with that? It gets very annoying.

No, haven't find an answer to this. But I'm still looking around.

If you just want to check them to see if you have new mail. You could set yourself up a little script to do it. You can get a atom feed of your inbox, use some to make it look pritty. Get it to loog in to both your aconuts together. You only get the first 250 chars so you would have to log in to see the full messages tho.
I made one so I can check mine at school can be found here it only shows you if you have new messages otherwise it is blank

If browsers cant handle css then the whole page degrades nicely. Which is where the sematic layout helps as everything falls where it should.

A feature that hasnt been taken up by many boards that would be very simple is to allow alt tags for your images. It could be implimented much the same as the link tag is. So in the form:

[img=http://image.com/image.gif]alt text[/img]

That could then also be used if the user has decided to have images as links. The alt text could be used as the link text.

Maybe something to add on the todo list?

The ">" is a child selector. IE doesnt understand it, so it can be used to hide css rules from IE.

dont understand what you mean by #2. Maybe someone else will.

edit; wrote a long responce but cant be bothered to have a fight. it is not worth it as you are a closed minded fool

If you really care that much about trying to get people the change back to using html. Go throught the source for punBB and change it so that is html and relase it as a html alternatiive.

You'll have a hard time finding modern websites using anything but XHTML

I am sorry but you are wrong with that one. Most corporate sites will use html and many of them are modern.

A few things. In an ideal world all browsers would have full support for the correct mime type. They would all render pages in the same way. So everyone could use valid xhtml.

Both xhtml and html pages have their place.

Although for some people XHTML 1.1 seems a bit stricter because it doesn't allow the NAME attribute to be used as fragment identifier reference anymore it is actually more limiting. As it, for example, does not support the ID attribute on the HTML element, which can be useful in some projects. (Browsers do support it; the DTD just does not allow it.)

Anne talks allot about the subject. His site is a good read.

A place for xhtml: a site that can grantee 100% valid markup. A site that will not exceed its maximum bandwidth (or doesn't care) so can have slightly larger pages.

A place for html:
- a site for optimisation that uses as few tags and space as it can as needs to keep under bandwidth
- a site where the owner doesn't care about markup. As html allows lose invalid markup.

The (x)html argument will go on for ages. This forum has been built with xhtml and in a way I feel it should.

An easy way to test it would be to get it on the front page of slashdot. Then you would see what a real load would do to it.

It would be cool to have a way to set a maximum length for users to make thier titles as at the moment you can have really long titles (up to 50 charectors). This can push some of the table cells bigger. It would be cool to limit it to a number of charectors set by admin and give them a message if it was too long.

Just a simple thing but something I think would be usefull.
