David Baron's weblog: What does a blur radius mean?
You may have been hearing for several years that all browsers support box-shadow and we should just drop the vendor prefixes already. If you've been wondering why they haven't, this post indicates the level of interoperability the browser vendors have been aiming for.

HTML5 Fuzzies – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
HTML5 has already been more widely abused than the term AJAX before it, but do we need to educate everybody on exactly what is HTML5 and what isn't before it's too late or can we accept a useful compromise and get on with giving clients what they need?

An InDesign for HTML and CSS? – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
"Well, there is a reason they absolutely do that with HTML. PostScript is a programming language designed to describe page layouts and text shapes in a world of known, fixed dimensions (the world of print), with no underlying semantics. PostScript doesn’t care whether an element is a paragraph, a headline, or a list item. It doesn’t care if a bit of content on one page cites another bit of content on a different page. PostScript is a visual plotting language. And HTML is anything but."

Firefox 4: CSS3 calc() ✩ Mozilla Hacks – the Web developer blog
Ever wanted to have two boxes, side by side, taking up the full width of the screen between them, but both having a one pixel border? CSS3 will finally allow you to do that, in several different ways. Setting width: calc(50% -2px) will be one of them.

Understand The Web · Ben Ward
There was a big hooha in the web standards world last week as, first, Joe Hewitt bemoaned the state of web development, then Steve Jobs took his feud with Adobe to the next level by publically disparaging the 'openness' of Flash (which some took as ironic, given the latest App Store developer agreement) and finally HP bought Palm and declared their belief in WebOS as the future. All big news for standardistas, this post does a pretty good job of summing it all up.

An essay on W3C's design principles
"Why doesn't HTML include tags for style? Why can't you put text inside SMIL? Why doesn't CSS include commands to transform a document? Why, in short, does W3C modularize its specification and why in this particular way?" - all these questions answered, and more!
