      Sorry should have put some context, any time I hear someone talking about internet arguments I think of the above comic.

    1)Applying CSS styles by tag
    2) JSpretty

    1) Useful way to expand javascript for styling.
    2) Nice online tool for cleaning up coding style

    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    Practice on assignments.

    Jim, on another note, what software do you use for your wiki? I’m setting up a wiki for a group that will be doing collaborative writing. Media Wiki is one of the software available through my hosting co. Are you familiar with that one? Can you recommend a better one? One of the features I’d really like to have is the ability for users to vote ideas up or down, like on StackOverflow.

    Thanks!

    Hi Liz,
    The course site is running on Mediawiki. I’ve been using it since 2006. It’s been great
    There is an extension that I’ve noticed (but not installed) that may get you close to what you want.
    http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:W4G_Rating_Bar
    Description: Lets users vote on pages, lists top pages (globally or by category), lists latest votes, etc.

    most valuable: creating doc fragments to help speed up populating doms. I will most likely be using this method for work since we load many rows to display. also using the data- tag, this will help me to put more programmatic/meta info in my data.

    want to know: are there ways to incorporate an html5/js call to a database? is there support for somethign like this?

  5. JimUBC says:

    Hi Yuki, It’s takes more than straight client-side JavaScript to do this. Talk to Dan (classmate). He’s doing something like this in one of his applications.

  6. Albert says:

    jspretty, docFrag, and Peerwise review and assignment review (div tags) was useful and valuable. hopefully will not repeat 11 trivial validation errors in assignment2.
