I am headed back to <font>…</font> and <blink>…</blink> tags (not).
I am almost too embarrassed to admit this, but thanks to an email from Keith K, it was pointed out the CSS class names used by Feed2JS are not exactly W3C valid since they use underscores (e.g.
.rss_box) and this may/will cause display problems in Internet Explorer (See Underscores in class and ID Names).
I’ve given some thought to this and have no clever way to do a workaround that will preserve the existing usage, so I am setting a future date when the script will be changed. This only matters to you if you use Feed2JS and have integrated the styles into your own web page CSS.
This could happen in two different ways:
- The script changes. Any users who were using the current style sheets would have to edit their CSS to change all underscores for hyphens.
feed2jsscript gets changed and saved as a new name (
feedtojs.php) that generates the proper classes, and the style builder will reference a copy of the original set of styles. This would mean old instances of the script will stay as is, but newer builds will be set up for the correct CSS declaration.
I more likely favor option 2 since it does not harm to current users, and I always aim to keep this backwards compatible. I am taking comments on this, but will implement a change by February 10, 2006.
All I can say is What a Maroon! What an Ignoranamus! hahahahaha.
