Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference

  •; By James Pyles (Posted by tripwire45 on Feb 1, 2007 12:59 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story

Remember...this is the Definitive Reference, not the Definitive Guide. Yes both are O'Reilly series and are related ("Definitive" books are supposed to be crammed full of information) but there is also a critical difference. Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference is more like a dictionary or a small encyclopedia (although "small" is in the eye of the beholder) than a textbook or teaching guide. The book assumes that you are at least somewhat "html-literate". Don't pick it up if you've never designed a webpage before.

Now revealed! Secrets of line spacing in Writer

The fact that Writer is more than a word processor is an open secret. Designed to write long documents, Writer is in many ways a document processor comparable to FrameMaker, suitable for designing books and dissertations while falling short of a complete desktop publishing solution. For this reason, it includes a number of tools for tweaking lines of text, including Tools> Language> Hyphenation and the tools for adjusting character width and letter space for individual characters. However, by far the least understood of these high-end tools is Writer's ability to adjust line-spacing.

Fluendo media decoders sound bad to open source advocates

Thanks to Fluendo, Linux and Solaris users on a variety of processor architectures can now purchase playback support for patent-encumbered audio and video formats. Similar support from free alternatives, whether they rely on copying Windows DLLs or use original code, all violate existing patent law. The mere existence of Fluendo's plugins needles a bevy of critics, but Fluendo is prepared to answer them all. And in an ironic twist, sales of these decoders for non-free formats are funding the development of free alternatives.

When you read source code, often you need to look for definitions of functions, classes, or other objects. Editors such as Emacs and Vim help you browse the code by supporting the concept of tags. You can think of tags as labels that can be jumped to.

Use MySQL GUI tools remotely and securely

MySQL is a database that is synonymous with ease-of-use, and most database-driven Web applications use it as their database of choice. Because of this, MySQL is used on many Web servers. While the MySQL command line tool is useful, unless you know all the ins and outs of SQL syntax, it can be time-consuming to get things done. It is for this reason that tools like phpMyAdmin have become so popular.
