After struggling all weekend with CSS, XHTML Yellow Screens of Death, cross-domain JavaScript problems, SVG browser quirks, and PHP errors, I decided to take a break and check in with the HTML5 mailing list. This wasn't a good idea because I then had to wade through the unending arguments around integrating new vocabularies like SVG and MathML into the text/html serialization. At some point, I must have finally reached a boiling point, because when I happened to hear that Adobe will support AIR on Linux, I finally decided to give Flash/Flex a try on Sunday. The next step is to consider whether a move to a Flash-based blog might actually be a good idea.

In related news, here are some pretty interesting links I found today on this topic:

Have a good one!

    Ha! For a moment while reading your post I actually thought you were serious! And that after a day of being heavily guarded against such stuff. Shame on me for doubting you, Jeff, you actually had me fooled!
