Updates

This incarnation of my website was (and still is!) a project many years in the making; its roots go allllll the way back to the now-defunct GeoCities site.  Much of the time has been spent (or wasted) coding frame/virtual frame pages, learning and implementing CSS 2.1, and attempting to conform to HTML 4.01, as well as learning JavaScript on the side.  (If you're curious about the gritty history of the site, you can read the change log of this site.)

Notes:

Key: [TAG], Directory, CSS, HTML, HTML Element, JavaScript, OpenOffice Document, Text.

HTML/CSS Conformance Notes

As of this writing, the pages with a checkmark in the HTML/CSS column above have been validated (using the Validator icons at the bottom of each page) to conform to the W3C's HTML 4.01 (Strict; Transitional where necessary) and CSS 2.1 Recommendations, with the following exceptions:

Speaking of JavaScript compatibility…


JavaScript Compatibility

While I've been learning JavaScript, I've discovered, like so many other Web programmers, that getting JS to work as intended with every browser is like pulling teeth.  (Especially IE!)  As I write programs for the local copy of the site, I use the "Big Three" Web browsers—Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome—to test them with before mirroring the site.  My philosophy is: if it doesn't work in Firefox or Chrome, it's probably broken on the other three.

As far as Internet Explorer goes, I dropped support for IE 7 some time ago, as it has too many CSS and JavaScript incompatibilities, and I can't keep up with them all.  I'm still required to support IE 8 to some degree, as Windows XP is still widely used (and we still have a Windows XP machine that I can test with).  I don't test IE as often as the other two, but I give it a try whenever a new version comes out (currently IE 11).

Note that I do not test under Apple Safari or Opera regularly (evidenced by the low version numbers), as I've found both to be rather slow on Windows.  I also have yet to test JavaScript on (or even devise a CSS stylesheet for) mobile Web browsers such as Safari and the Android OS versions of Chrome and Firefox, as well as IE Mobile.

2 The centering and/or scrolling of the overlaid image does not work quite right in IE (all versions) or Chrome.  I do not know why.

  • Consider starting a Descent 3 guide/walkthrough (I just beat the game recently, so it'll still be fresh...)

/dos/jazz

  • Re-code to HTML 4.01, with CSS 2.1; either use the new page layout, or make one similar to the Descent pages.
  • Use the new images from the 2013-Sep captures.
  • Create and complete JJBASICS, JJGMINFO, JJPLANETS, JJITEMS, and JJWEAPONS.
  • Possibly make a JJ2 Game Info page (JJ2GMINFO).

/nintendo

  • Complete text guides ZELDA-LTTP-GUIDE and SM64-GUIDE, then build the HTML guides, as with SMETROID.
  • Start conversion of OpenOffice guides to HTML (or perhaps PDF?).

  • Completing the guide may wait until I complete it as text-only first.

/xpilot

  • Implement new page layout, with new page banner and logo.
  • Complete XPNEWBIE.
  • Expand XPCMAPS, XPIMAPS_1, and XPIMAPS_2 to include basic map information (# of bases, teams, etc.).
