On File Formats, Very Briefly, by Paul Ford · The Manual
"WordPerfect was always the best word processor. Because it allowed for insight into its very structure. You could hit a certain key combination and suddenly the screen would split and you’d reveal the codes, the bolds and italics and so forth, that would define your text when it was printed. It was beloved of legal secretaries and journalists alike. Because when you work with words, at the practical, everyday level, the ability to look under the hood is essential. Words are not simple. And WordPerfect acknowledged that." I grew up on WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS, and Reveal Codes. Some days, I wonder if it's why I got on with markup so well.

Twitter Bootstrap
"Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites. It includes base CSS and HTML for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, and more." Really nice - straightforward, elegant, and a good starting point for the scratchy websites I tend to end up making.

About this Blog | Free PeepCode Blog
Lovely, lovely article explaining just how the PeepCode Blog works. The blog itself features unique layouts for every post. There's no CMS, no database, but what's going on under the hood is at least as clever - and the flexibility makes the beautiful and clear pages much easier to build.

Recreating the button | stopdesign
"The buttons are designed to look very similar to basic HTML input buttons. But they can handle multiple interactions with one basic design. The buttons we’re using are imageless, and they’re created entirely using HTML and CSS, plus some JavaScript to manage the behavior." Dark, dark voodoo, but very impressive - and excellently explained by Doug Bowman. It's nice to see Doug blogging again.

12 resources for getting a jump on HTML 5 ~ Authentic Boredom

Elements of an EmotionML 1.0
"To the extent that the web is becoming truly ubiquitous, and involves increasingly multimodal paradigms of interaction, it seems appropriate to define a Web standard for representing emotion-related states, which can provide the required functionality." No, it does not seem appropriate. It seems bonkers.

"This javascript function can then read in the current content of the text area, format it using a trimmed down version of textile, and then set the content of a DIV with the resulting HTML. The end result of all this is live comment preview, with textile formatting." Live textile preview functionality.

wmd - The Wysiwym Markdown Editor
"WMD is a simple, lightweight HTML editor for blog comments, forum posts, and basic content management. You can add WMD to any textarea with one line of code." Very impressive; very coherent. Worth further investigation.

Perfection / journal / nascentguruism
"If there’s a single piece of functionality that you feel you can’t provide in raw HTML, you’re doing it wrong." Yes. Steve is, by and large, right about all of this. This is why front-end development is worthy of being a role in its own right.

thoughtbot: projects - MileMarker
"MileMarker adds a helper for marking page elements with the milestone they are slated to be developed, and makes them unable to be interacted with." The JS-y approach isn't quite how I'd do it, but it's a neat idea.
