Wouldn't it be great if some really useful tags were added to html eg

Code: [ Select ]
<french>hello</french>


would translate everything into french

or maybe

Code: [ Select ]
<body layout="exactly as it looks in my head"></body>


would solve everyone's layout nightmares!

Yes, I've had a tough day...

Nice atno, nice :wink:

Code: [ Select ]
<body layout="exactly as it looks in my head"></body>


This one's really easy, between the body you use a whole bunch of divs, and on those divs you set id's, then you go make a stylesheet :D hehehe

If you have layout nightmares, I got two words for you:

"standards compliance" - I have never had any serious layout problems since I learned about these words.

I'd could always go for a non-depricated
Code: [ Select ]
<center="every_browser"></center>

I'm too lazy to type out the extra three lines of CSS to center block items. :-P

mine would be...

Code: [ Select ]
<take everything that the techies and sales made and UN-center it, then UN-100% width it>DO THIS NOW!</take everything that the techies and sales made and UN-center it, then UN-100% width it>


Mu-HAHAHAHA
:twisted:


I think I need to work on streamlining the syntax a bit.

Code: [ Select ]
<embedfont>myfont</embedfont>


Now that would be usefull, instead of using that micro$oft embedding tool, which the name escapes me now.

This HTML page represents everyone who ever comes into my office with a question like "hey, do you think you could make a site and add a link on our homepage to a local event I'm planning to run tomorrow morning?" Now... CARE's (the org I work for) homepage gets some 150,000 visitors a month, 100,000 of those are unique, as close as WebTrends/SmartSource can tell, anyway. The site itself has well over 2,000 pages. There are people from all over the world hitting CARE's site, and she wants to make a whole website and add a link in the top level site navigation for some random local one-time event... all in less than, oh... 2 hours (did I mention this NEVER happens before 4:30pm?)

Here's her damn site:

Code: [ Select ]
<html>

<body>

<head></head>

</body>

</html>
  1. <html>
  2. <body>
  3. <head></head>
  4. </body>
  5. </html>


=] (if you don't get it... just think about it for a bit... heh)

That would be Micro$oft WEFT :)

I think my favourite would be the <idiot></idiot> tags...

That way, when I start getting into something technical, or actually use correct terms... I could have something like...

<idiot>It sounds like your CD-Rom drive is having some problems</idiot>

People who actually know what a CD-Rom drive is would be able to read exactly what it says.

Whereas your average computer user would see...

"Yeah, your coffee cup holder's broken" :)

Lol @ axe. well, working on the definition that pepole using Gecko or Opera Browsers are likely to be technical, and people using IE are more likely to come into the "idiot" bracket, you could use <a href="http://www.caffeinefuelled.net/richard-hotlink/idiotaxe_ie6.htm">this page</a>

Alternatively, if you want to give users of MSIE6 the benefit of the doubt and just class users of IE5 as idiots, you can use<a href="http://www.caffeinefuelled.net/richard-hotlink/idiotaxe_ie5.htm">this page</a> (not tested although it should work)

:D yes I have nothing better to do with my time :roll:

Is her head up her @..... oh. hmm. I think I get it. :)

There's no html tag I could see myself happier, but I'd love to have the php function:

find_right_code_from_previous_project_and_reuse_it_on_this_one()

an auto-optimizer for css code would be useful too. :)

I've been able to get a lot out of code-reuse, but I still find myself writing similar freakin' code all the time.
