OpenWeb: SVG vs Canvas

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

In short, my finding is that Canvas is good to draw a single [animated or not] image and SVG is better for interactive 2D components or applications (e.g. Interactive Charting, Google Docs Presentations, and Zoho Show). I might be wrong, feel free to comment.

CSS: Weird margin-top CSS bug? I think?

Friday, February 27th, 2009

I having been hitting a weird and annoying CSS bug (I think)

  <div id="header">
    <div id="title">My</div>


  margin-top: 10px;

Then, somehow, the margin-top of 10px get assigned to the #header div?

Now, the weird thing, is that if I add any text (i.e &nbsp;) just before the #title div class, then, the margin-top get appropriately assign to the #title div???

Now, even weirder, same behavior on Firefox 3.0.1, Google Chrome, and Safari????

Here is another example

The Blue box should be just below
  <div style="margin-top:0px;background-color:blue;width:50px;height:50px">
    <div style="margin-top:20px;background-color:red;width:10px;height:10px">

The Blue box should be just below this text (but it is 20 px down) and the red box should be 20px down the blue box, but it is 0px.

Any help greatly appreciated. Easy to work around, but kind of annoying.

OpenWeb: XForms Implementations

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

W3C XForms Implementation link

Some interesting ones:

  • Orbeon: Seems to be a solid, skinnable, HTML/AJAX implementation of Xforms.
  • AJAXForms: AJAXForms is a tool that transforms XHTML/XForms documents (at compile/design time) to HTML with Javascript documents.
  • Chiba Web 3.0: Chiba Web 3 isĀ  release of the Chiba server-side XForms implementation, coming with a brand new JavaScript layer, improved XForms 1.1 support, localisation, XPath 2.0 and more. Chiba is now using Dojo Toolkit Version 1.2.3 (latest) which vastly improves the quality of the UI.
