Drawing Graphics with Canvas
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "Apr 20, 2005" ])}} With the Firefox 1.1 Developer Preview Release, Firefox includes a new HTML element for programmable graphics. <canvas> is based on the WhatWG canvas specification, which itself is based on Apple's <canvas> implemented in Safari. It can be used for rendering graphs, UI elements, and other custom graphics on the client.
The Importance of Correct Commenting
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "May 16, 2005" ])}} When authoring HTML in standards mode, incorrectly formed comments can break your pages, resulting in part or all of your content being commented out. When authoring XHTML or XML, incorrect comments will result in your documents not being able to be displayed at all.
Tips for Authoring Fast-loading HTML Pages
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "Apr 26, 2005" ])}} An optimized web page not only provides for a more responsive site for your visitors, but also reduces the load on your web servers and internet connection. This can be crucial for high volume sites or sites which have a spike in traffic due to unusual circumstances such as breaking news stories. Optimizing page load performance is not just for content which will be viewed by narrow band dialup visitors. It is just as important for broad band content and can lead to dramatic improvements even for your visitors with the fastest connections.
Gecko's Almost Standards Mode
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "Apr 20, 2005" ])}} Almost standards rendering mode is exactly the same as standards mode in all details save one: the layout of images inside table cells is handled as they are in Gecko's quirks mode, which is fairly consistent with other browsers, such as Internet Explorer.
Images, Tables, and Mysterious Gaps
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "Apr 20, 2005" ])}} Almost no matter when you started creating Web pages, odds are pretty high you have one or more designs based on the classic "convoluted tables and lots of images" paradigm. Thanks to an obscure corner of the CSS specification, every design based on a precise layout of small images in table cells have become visual disasters just waiting to happen.
Using the Right Markup to Invoke Plugins
{{wiki.template('Added-date', [ "Apr 20, 2005" ])}} This article is about how to invoke a plugin with the correct use of HTML. It discusses the object element and the embed element, with details about using the most apt HTML to invoke Java in a web page as well.
