HREF - part 4

I'm going to download some WordPress plugin and add this links to my sidebar instead, which will hopefully make me post more frequently instead of just thinking that is a nice post to add. I'll also add some other people (and weblogs) as well to the sidebar and I will make a style switcher for a layout that is so damn easy even Internet Explorer will understand (I hope that is supported with application/xhtml+xml, I especially worry about cookies and such).

I wonder if I missed something that I haven't linked to before... O well, these 3 links are good enough, no need for more.


  1. Base sixteen is much better than base 12. It readily divides into almost as many parts as base 12 (2, 4, and 8, as opposed to 2, 3, 4, and 6), but it also allows for sum-the-digits determination if a number is divisible by 3, 5, or 15. It also allows for easier doubling, which is the most common operation to work with. An added bonus is that it would probably speed up computers, since there wouldn't be any converting between bases that needed to be done to display things.

    I absolutely love the other two links. :-)

  2. The styleswitcher I used (I disabled it for the time being) works perfectly fine with both Mozilla browsers (and the like) as Internet Explorer. And yes, my website is served as application/xhtml+xml (to media that except it anyway).

  3. If you agree with Freedom 0, then maybe the time has come for a switch to Linux? ;-)

  4. ACJ, thanks for that information. I really need a style switcher, since some people can't stand the colors (note that this was also Arthur's intention) and other people are using buggy browsers, which don't have reasonable support for CSS.

    Ben, I probably need to give it a second try indeed. I would love to buy an Apple as well.

    You work at nedlinux, don't you?

  6. I have my site going out as xhtml+xml to browsers that say they can handle it. When I was just serving it plain as xhtml+xml, some people with IE were being asked if they would like to download my site (like when the browser were to get a application/zip or whatever).


    if(stristr($_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT"],"application/xhtml+xml")) {
     header("Content-type: application/xhtml+xml");
     header("Content-type: text/html");
