  144. # [16:02] <smedero> MikeSmith: There was talk (@TPAC) of making some of the internal W3C documents on processes and such available to the public... how's that moving along? (or, are you even in the loop on such things)
  145. # [16:05] <smedero> I thought it might be good to have material like that available for educational purposes to non-members... as the html-wg spends a lot of cycles churning through perceived process issues (when I suspect it is much-to-do-about-nothing.)

  177. # [16:28] <billyjackass> <MikeSmith> I do see a few things that aren't so up-to-date... e.g., a link to "W3C XML Specification DTD (XMLspec), well-supported by Norman Walsh."
  178. # [16:28] <billyjackass> <MikeSmith> I don't think Norm would want it being advertised that he's the support resource for XMLspec

  180. # [16:28] <billyjackass> <MikeSmith> anyway, perhaps part of the reason for not flipping the switch on making it public is that somebody'd need to go in there and review stuff like that and bring it up to date

  201. # [16:46] <Lachy> rubys, my general concern is that you could abuse your power as chair to overrule the editor to get your own way, especially on controversial issues, rather than remaining objective and basing decisions on evidence.
  202. # [16:49] <smedero> Lachy: From my POV at least, Sam's actions in other standards bodies and open source software projects don't suggest that such behavior is typical for him.
  203. # [16:52] <smedero> (that is, abusing power)
  204. # [16:52] <Philip`> Cloud computing people really need to work out a better way of advertising their CPU offerings - it's quite hard to compare "1 EC2 Compute Unit" ("equivalent CPU capacity of a 1.0-1.2 GHz 2007 Opteron or 2007 Xeon processor"), a quarter of "1 Xeon core (equivalent to a P4 2.0 chip)", and "1 CPU"

  222. # [17:18] <takkaria> yecril71: they're attributes for use in scripts, so I don't quite understand what you mean
  223. # [17:18] <yecril71> Instead of saying data=attribute="sometext"
  224. # [17:18] <yecril71> I would rather say <SCRIPT TYPE="text/plain" >sometext</SCRIPT >
  225. # [17:18] <takkaria> well, they don't achieve the same thing
  226. # [17:19] <Philip`> yecril71: How would you associate that script with an element?
  227. # [17:19] <yecril71> firstChild
  228. # [17:20] <yecril71> (or, for empty elements, nextSibling)
  229. # [17:21] <Philip`> yecril71: data-* would be associated with an element like <h1 data-reflection-colour="#ff00ff" data-reflection-height="20">My Page</h1> - how would you write something like that with <script>?
  230. # [17:23] <yecril71> reflection=colour=#FF00FF&reflection-height=20
  231. # [17:23] * Joins: dglazkov (n=dglazkov@nat/google/x-b6803cb725fb9f42)
  232. # [17:23] <yecril71> reflection-colour=#FF00FF&reflection-height=20
  233. # [17:23] <takkaria> as in <h1><script type="text/plain">reflection-color=#FF00FF&reflection-height=20</script>My Page</h1>?
  234. # [17:24] <yecril71> That is my idea, although I would rather use text/xml.
  235. # [17:24] <takkaria> because doing it that way makes it harder to use, since everyone has to write their own parser and serialiser to write to the <script> tag
  236. # [17:25] <takkaria> also, for elements which start off with no data- attributes and get some during script execution, scripts would have to create an element and insert it rather than just setting an attribute
  237. # [17:26] <yecril71> They would rather change an existing SCRIPT element, that would be provided specifically for the purpose.
  238. # [17:26] <Philip`> And you'd have to do something different for empty elements like <hr>, or for elements which can only contain text like <script> or <style> or <textarea>
  239. # [17:27] <yecril71> hr: nextSibling
  240. # [17:27] <yecril71> Script content is usually expressive enough; there is no need to hook additional data into the element.
  241. # [17:27] <Philip`> That sounds like an awful lot of effort and special-casing for no added value compared to just using attributes
  242. # [17:28] <yecril71> <textarea > can be served by input[type="hidden"]
  243. # [17:28] <Philip`> (and using <script> for storing data rather than script code seems like a hack)
  244. # [17:28] <Philip`> ((though it's a hack that HTML5 explicitly allows))
  245. # [17:28] <yecril71> Except that noone is really going to do that for all the elements at the same time.
  246. # [17:28] <takkaria> but if you want to set attributes on elements, it seems much more sensible to set attributes on elements rather than create/maniplate the text value of various different hidden elements differently depending on the element you're manipulating
  247. # [17:29] <yecril71> But these attributes are only relevant to a script, arentít they?
  248. # [17:30] <yecril71> So it seems natural to use SCRIPT for script data.
  249. # [17:30] * Quits: maikmerten (n=merten@ls5dhcp195.cs.uni-dortmund.de) (Remote closed the connection)
  250. # [17:31] <yecril71> Most programming languages allow both code and data to be specified, with Pascal as a notable exception.
  251. # [17:31] <takkaria> that's one argument, but if you look at what a pain in the arse doing it that way is compared to setting attributes on elements, perhaps you'll see why the latter is codified in the spec
  252. # [17:32] <yecril71> So is the former, I only asked about the advantages of it.
  253. # [17:32] <takkaria> not to mention that if you tell people to use an overcomplicated system when they could just set attributes, they'll just set attributes anyway, since it will be more efficient
  254. # [17:33] <Philip`> Looking at some of the blog comments from when data-* was added to the spec, it seems quite a lot of people were already using custom attributes to store element-specific data
  255. # [17:33] <Philip`> (and I'd done that on two separate HTML application things too)
  256. # [17:34] <Philip`> so it's nice to pave that cowpath :-)
  257. # [17:34] <yecril71> It was my first idea when I encountered this problem but then I realized I can do it more consistently.
  258. # [17:35] <yecril71> I am not questioning them being supported; they are just not better from my POV.
  259. # [17:36] <yecril71> So I was interested if anybody here actually considers them better and why.
  260. # [17:37] <yecril71> And parsing a query string should really be on the DOM, IMHO.
  261. # [17:37] <yecril71> Something like record = document.parseQuery(query).
  262. # [17:38] <zcorpan> decodeURIComponent?
  263. # [17:38] <zcorpan> hmm maybe not
  264. # [17:38] <yecril71> That does not return an arbitrary record.
  265. # [17:40] <takkaria> but parsing/serialising will be very slow compared to setting attributes
  266. # [17:41] <yecril71> It depends what the script really wants to do with the data.
  267. # [17:42] <yecril71> It can actually be quicker than going through a module boundary.
  268. # [17:42] <yecril71> (which is required to access a DOM property from script)

  285. # [19:30] <MathiasBynens> Oi
  286. # [19:34] <MathiasBynens> I was wondering if it's possible to use horizontal scrollbars to scroll through a list of images. Similar to http://monsieurlagent.com/works.php (after clicking one of the navigation links on the left), but using CSS instead of an IFRAME. Any ideas?
  287. # [19:35] <MathiasBynens> The only solution I see at the moment, is giving the parent element of the images a fixed width of x pixels, but that's not very flexible.
  288. # [19:36] <Dashiva> How would it trigger scrolling if it didn't have a set width?

  293. # [19:47] <MathiasBynens> Philip: Yeah, you're right as well. The combination of overflow: auto and white-space: nowrap applied on the element containing the list of images did the job.
