Acrobat User Community

My first throught about is message board. People can post question to get help from web community. But, when I vist the site. I see blogs and some other learngin materials, not message board. Anyway, this is great move for adobe.

I have mixed feeling about PDF file. I would like people to send me PDF file instead of MS word file, but in the web, I will try not to open any PDF file. I think Acrobat reader is a monster as many reasons.

Web-based Intranet and Internet Information and Applications (1194.22)

Sestion 508

(n) When electronic forms are designed to be completed on-line, the form shall allow people using assistive technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.

There is a grey area on checkbox and radio button. Where do I put LABEL.

For example :

Accessories :

[ ] Printer

[ ] Monitor

[ ] Keyboard

[ ] Mouse

I believe each checkbox need to associate a LABEL with text on the right side.

MAC OX 10.4.5

Just upgraded from 10.4.4. I still couldn't get IE 5 work. I understood IE was unsupported on MAC. I could open up IE, but "Finder" came up if I clicked any links on IE. That's kind of weird.

I also installed Camino yesterday, so far so good.

Safari and Textarea

Safari try to take some advantage native UI; unfortunately, the TEXTAREA is not quite right.

1, The scrollbar up/down arrow can't be shown, if rows less than 4.
2, Try to control textarea height, but scrollHeight is fixed number and never be changed.

Open Source Flash - osflash

Push down binary object at runtime -- it's a dream idea for web developer. It's going to be lightweight and fast.

However, Flash is really another world for me. Get the idea, but don't know how to start a sample.

Linux users say OS needs touch-up with Photoshop | CNET

GIMP is my favorite graph tool. It's free. Since I am not professional graph designer, I only use some very simple tools on windows XP. And, it works for me.

JavaScript Graphics Development

The other day, I were thinking how to draw fourier wave by using javascript canvas. At that moment, my assumption was that as long as I could figure out how to draw sin and cos, then I could do that.

Now, I just looked at the site how to draw sin and cos. To draw a wave, it draw pixel by pixel. In this case, I need to work on my math how to calculate intrgral, then draw a fourier wave.
