Mark Pilgrim talks about CSS hiding tricks that relies on bugs. David Hyatt at Apple would like to fix them - they are bugs! Mark says that as a web developer you have to rely on them to make your site work on all browsers, and goes on to suggest that Apple should intentionally implement a few "edge cases" to hide CSS from Safari and from any other browsers than Safari.

Maybe I am missing something, but isn't the obvious solution to make a valid syntax that will say "Only read this if you are browser X"?

Except that Javascript can be disabled, is there a reason to not just do that in Javascript?

Mark also keeps a list of layout bugs in Safari.

whois issues

| No Comments

ICANN is seeking comments on proposals to change how the whois information is being handled and how it's available. Aaron has some comments on it.

He mentions that having the whois information available to everyone might have a chilling effect on human rights activists. I never thought of that; but I do know that it's problem in tracking spammers that they falsify the whois information (and that the registrars let them eventhough it's disallowed).

Press Briefing from the White House a few days ago:

Q At the earlier briefing, Ari, you said that the President deplored the taking of innocent lives. Does that apply to all innocent lives in the world? And I have a follow-up.

MR. FLEISCHER: I refer specifically to a horrible terrorist attack on Tel Aviv that killed scores and wounded hundreds. And the President, as he said in his statement yesterday, deplores in the strongest terms the taking of those lives and the wounding of those people, innocents in Israel.

Q My follow-up is, why does he want to drop bombs on innocent Iraqis?

MR. FLEISCHER: Helen, the question is how to protect Americans, and our allies and friends --

Q They're not attacking you.
