Revision Content

This is my TODO-list of pages i want to change, improve. Feel free to add items (especially in JavaScript and DOM)

ECMAScript

  • Document this
  • Array: make it awesome. Maybe separate the Array built-in and the array instances. Maybe follow ES5.1 sectionning style because it makes sense. Write a note for PHP devs.
  • instanceof: cleanup page. Remove the XPCOM section, find it a new home, because web devs do not care.
  • foreach: write a polyfill for human beings.
  • Object.defineProperty: talk about configurable more in details and program robusteness, invariants, etc.
  • delete. Cleanup page
  • Update Proxy doc when the API changes and is implemented on Firefox
  • Describe, when and why s.toUpperCase().toLowerCase() != s.toLowerCase() (also on Manuel_Strehl's mental TODO list)
  • Do a page like this one but for JavaScript features.

DOM

  • window.onunload. Explain the unload semantics
  • Maybe ask to stop on-* pages and ask to rather have dom event pages. One not somewhere could explain how to attach event handlers.
  • textContent: Say it's better for performance and security. Add interesting examples for that.
  • document.querySelectorAll: cleanup. say NodeLists aren't live, because it'd be impossible to implement or terrible performance-wise.
  • NodeList & HTMLCollection. Add a section on why they look like arrays but are not (and can't use array extras on it). Talk more about liveness maybe.
  • document.cookie: talk about cookie theft, cleanup. Maybe try to discuss ow to prevent it with some ES5 magics (needs an instance of IE9-10).
  • Not sure what to do with this page
  • element.addEventListener: improve
  • event.relatedTarget drag and drop events are standard since HTML5. Investigate relatedTarget semantics for the different drag events.
  • Improve Creating_and_triggering_custom_events. Talk about CustomEvent (add browser support for this feature as well(FF version: 6)). Discuss usefulness of CustomEvents

Other JS technologies

  • frames. apparently window !== frames on IE8 or something. Investigate & document
  • setTimeout: add a note on the fact that integers are returned as identifers which could be a security issue in cases. show how to have a safe setTimeout/clearTimeout pair. Add a full section on "fast setTimeout 0"

CSS

  • display: document table-related values.
  • Bring to MDN some sort of "definite CSS positionning guide", because this is fucking difficult!
    • Research on the web
    • Find people who know a lot about this topic (maybe the awesome Lea Verou or Robert Nyman)
