Atom, Unicode, And Metatags

Here’s a slightly briefer version of the random links post that got tragically wiped yesterday:

  • CSS float tutorial – Can’t get your head around floats in CSS? This is the guide. Clear, concise and well illustrated; makes everything much easier,
  • Unicode Applications in PHP – A guide to getting PHP applications to use unicode. I haven’t tried it myself yet, but it looks quite good,
  • Multibyte String Functions – Or PHP’s built-in unicode handling functions.
  • Secure Shell Access Instructions – Everything you need to know about secure shell access (if you don’t know what that is, you don’t need to),
  • Atom API – Mark lays out a brief history of content management APIs followed by a close look at the upcoming Atom API. A must read for anyone working with content management or syndication,
  • Mozilla – The Mozilla website has been redesigned by Dave Shea (of Mezzoblue). It looks great, can’t wait for the rest,
  • Death Of A Metatag – It has been done: metatags are now dead. Don’t even think about indexing them (not that anyone does anymore),
  • OPML Considered H.. awful – An outline of why the OPML serialisation format is piss poor. My own experiences with it are less than pleasant,
  • A 3d House In CSS – An interesting way of making art with CSS. Very clever,
  • Example User Stylesheets – Pretty much what it says on the tin: examples of user stylesheets.
  • PHP Scalability – An article on how scalable PHP is. If it is good enough for Scott to build Feedster, then it’s good enough for me.

Quite tech heavy; I’ll try to make the next link post a little lighter.
