More content will be added to fill this space at some point in the future.


Another redesign. This time with BlogPower™. Not sure what will happen about content. Probably will get content until I get bored, then wither.

It seems that I haven't been updating my website as often as I should. There's a lot of information that I want to share with people, but I haven't come up with a simple way of getting it all across.

In the mean time, there is a menu to the left there <--

The reason most people have web pages I do not know, however I do like to be able to find out about people by looking at their web pages. I am less interested to find out about their gerbil though. It is like Internet spying, but spying on what they want you to know. So that people can find a little about me I have written these pages.

My PGP/GPG key is available as this file

There is a more blog-style diary here

Opera 9.51 shows noscript tags

It seems that it's possible to get opera to show the content of a <noscript> tag, even without the user disabling javascript.

It took me a long time to work out why there was the content of <noscript> tags popping up on our site for opera users. They were showing the raw html of the text inside the tag, but it was showing up.

See the example of opera displaying noscript tags

It turned out that someone had added CSS to style noscript elements, and set them to display: block. From this, it seems that Opera (9.51) treats noscript elements as if they were a <pre> tag, styled with display: none.

This seems quite sensible, and it was a bit silly for us to style the noscript element as displayed. However, the HTML spec says that the browser shouldn't display the noscript except in 2 specific cases - scripting being turned off or it not having run a previous script on the page. As neither of these have happend, it should not display the text, putting Opera in the wrong.

I'm now experimenting with comments on this site, they're provided by js-kit in a very web2.0 way. Just a little bit of javascript on my site, and it works. Well, I don't know if it works yet, leave a comment to test it :)
