A Test for Ruby Annotation

I wonder if it works: さいとうのぶW3C Associate Chairman and WWWWorld Wide Web. The correct rendering should be and . Well, ignore the blue text in the second one... =P

This should only work for Mozilla as I'm using the CSS hack from Kitamura Akatsuki. Otherwise, you are using a browser with support of ruby annotation. For instance, I found IE supports simple ruby annotation. In this case, the second one.

To test your browser, visit Compelling Unicode Examples using Ruby Annotation.

The New Thunderbird Has Arrived!

Mozilla Thunderbird 0.6a (nightly build) is released, with the whole new visual identify as follow:

Actually not much major changes compared with version 0.5. Well, may be wait for alpha, beta, or stable build of version 0.6... The birth of the little bird may be far more interesting. ^o^

By the way, try not to invoke the wrath of browser god:

Forcing IE to display "application/xhtml+xml" pages

Sanjay found a hack to force IE to display (instead of downloading) XHTML page, with content type application/xhtml+xml, as either HTML or XML: by editing the infamous registry.

Well, cool. But why not to use a better browser instead? :-P

XML is a step backward

I found this blog comment quite true:

"Think how easy it is to manage XML."

Answer, not at all. XML is a step backwards to the dark days of hierarchical databases. X-Schema offers only about as much data typing as COBOL did in picture clauses. I think we deserve better. However MS and just about everybody else has jumped on the XML fad and it IS a fad and not a tool for the thinking practitioner.


That blog is discussing about XUL and XAML, the two XML UI technologies from Mozilla and M$.

So from database point of view, XML is really not a good data source. XML is probably only good for developers...

By the way, a new design of thunderbird is coming soon. I'm looking forward!

Also, I've added the HaloScan system to this weblog, so now you can give me feedback about the posts. Yeah!

The search is over! I found TONS of high resolution (300dpi) image scans from Anime Project Alliance Gallery. Even if you choose 72 dpi, the quality is great already. Got to download them all!

p.s. Don't be scared by the sexy girl in the frontpage though... not a H site... ^^::

@__@||| COPYCAT!

I found a korean web site is referring my wiki site, as recorded in my AWStats. Look at the content, page names and icons... All stolen from my site!!! -__-|||

How would he/she do so... Even that it has an acknowledgement to me ("페이지 디자인 참고")...
