Another reason to like SeaMonkey!

As I mentioned before, I like to use SeaMonkey. In general, browsing wise, it is very much like Firefox so that's good for those people who like Firefox, they can switch without losing much else than the location where the toolbar buttons are (Quite a few are in different places).

The thing I discovered today, though, is really cool. I put a path to an email saved on my disk to see whether the HTML in that email was valid or not and it loaded at once. Just before hitting Enter I though, wait... I probably should remove the email header. Nope. No need. It actually recognized the data and ...

gVim editor in SeaMonkey and FireFox

Today I discovered It's All Text. This is a FireFox (also works in SeaMonkey) extension that gives you the capability of editing a box of text in your favorite editor.

I love to use SeaMonkey, but the text editor is a bit light when it comes to writing code or fix broken HTML.

Once saved with Internet Explorer, these change to vAlign and align and center and middle respectively. Yes. Meaning that the values are swapped. Now the valign says center instead of middle, which will work with most browsers, but the worst is the align that is set to middle. That should never happen.

One document with all translations

Have you ever thought that it would be great to write one document including all the translations in a single file? Outside of the fact that this makes the document relatively large, it makes the translation really fast, the translator can see the sentence in all the other languages and translate from that.

I actually wrote an HTML test file with two styles. One is named English and the other is named Français. And since a style entry can depend on the currently selected language, you can write style entries that get hidden when on or the other language is selected.

So, if you ...
