Drawing Graphics with Canvas
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
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
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.
