Designing Articles, News & Tutorials


Basics of HTML and HTML Tutorials, References and Resources by Jim Eshelman.


Chilling Effects Clearinghouse - A joint project of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, University of San Francisco, University of Maine, and George Washington School of Law clinics.

Do you know your online rights? Have you received a letter asking you to remove information from a Web site or to stop engaging in an activity? Are you concerned about liability for information that someone else posted to your online forum? If so, this site is for you.

Chilling Effects aims to help you understand the protections that the First Amendment and intellectual property laws give to your online activities. We are excited about the new opportunities the Internet offers individuals to express their views, parody politicians, celebrate their favorite movie stars, or criticize businesses. But we've noticed that not everyone feels the same way. Anecdotal evidence suggests that some individuals and corporations are using intellectual property and other laws to silence other online users. Chilling Effects encourages respect for intellectual property law, while frowning on its misuse to "chill" legitimate activity.

Comprehensive guide to .htaccess - I am sure that most of you have heard of htaccess, if just vaguely, and that you may think you have a fair idea of what can be done with an htaccess file. You are more than likely mistaken about that, however. Regardless, even if you have never heard of htaccess and what it can do for you, the intention of this tutorial is to get you two moving along nicely together.

If you have heard of htaccess, chances are that it has been in relation to implementing custom error pages or password protected directories. But there is much more available to you through the marvelously simple .htaccess file.
* 04/01/2006


css-discuss.org - css-discuss is a mailing list devoted to talking about CSS and ways to use it in the real world; in other words, practical uses and applications. While theory and ideas for the future are interesting, they do interfere with our mission to help people get the most out of CSS today, so we tend not to spend a lot of time on theory. There are other lists and groups for that sort of thing anyway.

The list sports a very large membership and strong sense of community. This particular community is welcoming of new members, but remember that any large group of people who have been around for a while will have evolved a set of mores and limits. If you plan to join us, please read the list policies before you make your first post. And seriously consider a look through the list archives to see if your question has already been addressed. We're usually pretty tolerant of repeated topics as long as they're spread out over time, but if you ask the same question someone else asked two days ago, you're unlikely to get many responses.

We do our best to help newcomers to CSS and old hands alike, and many fascinating techniques and tricks, some of them documented in articles for respected industry publications, have come out of the list discussion. If you're interested in using CSS in today's browsers, and you want to be a better CSS author, then this list is very definitely for you.
* 04/30/2006


CSS Play by Stu Nicholls - Because my site deals with experimental CSS that is exactly what you get JUST CSS, no javascript or any other programming language has been used in any of the demonstrations.* 05/01/2006


CSS Zen Garden - A demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS-based design. - There is clearly a need for CSS to be taken seriously by graphic artists. The Zen Garden aims to excite, inspire, and encourage participation. To begin, view some of the existing designs in the list. Clicking on any one will load the style sheet into this very page. The code remains the same, the only thing that has changed is the external .css file. Yes, really.

CSS allows complete and total control over the style of a hypertext document. The only way this can be illustrated in a way that gets people excited is by demonstrating what it can truly be, once the reins are placed in the hands of those able to create beauty from structure. To date, most examples of neat tricks and hacks have been demonstrated by structurists and coders. Designers have yet to make their mark. This needs to change.

* You've GOT to Check Out their Web Browser List! 07/16/2003


Evolution of Cross-Browser Web Coding - Before there was high speed Internet, let alone high speed wireless Internet, there was really only one browser; Netscape Navigator. Yes other browsers existed but so many people used Netscape that it was not cost effective to bother developing for anything else. Further the trend was that services like AOL were adopting Netscape anyway. But as time went on two things happened that changed this easy to develop for model; new browsers such as Internet Explorer were released, and differing opinions on how to implement the HTML DOM model as well as client side scripting languages such as JavaScript and how they interacted with DOM. Thus, the need for "Cross-Browser Coding," which is the ability for web pages to be viewed in multiple browsers.* Read the Full Article and then check out the "cross platform coding resources, and informational links"* offered. Thank you for the recommendation for the link Mandy!! 07/15/2009

A large number of people refer to Domain Name Analyzer as the best software for searching domain names.* This was recommended by Jeff Partridge in the Lockergnome IT Professionals ~ April 27, 2004 Newsletter.

Search Engines


CodeHound - Launched in February 2000, CodeHound has steadily become one of the most popular Web destinations for software developers around the world.

Unlike other Internet search engines, CodeHound is specifically designed for programmers. Instead of using a larger search engine like Google or AltaVista, a CodeHound user comes to CodeHound, selects a programming language, and lets CodeHound search the best Web sites and newsgroups dedicated to that language. Our search results are always relevant and up-to-date.

Not only does CodeHound target our users' search results to specific Web site, but we also categorize our users' search results. For example, a search on our SQL search engine is categorized by RDMS: SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, Informix, Sybase, Microsoft Access, MySQL, and others. No other search engine on the Internet offers such power!

While a CodeHound user can use CodeHound just like any other Internet search engine, we also provide free Add-Ins for many popular development environments. Our Java, Visual Basic, and Delphi search engines have free Add-Ins available for download. Once our Add-In is installed, a CodeHound user simply right-clicks on a word or phrase in the IDE and selects "Search CodeHound". The default Web browser will automatically launch with the search results already executed.

* Chris Pirillo's Blog Entry About Gada.be. 10/14/2005

Visitors to the Wayback Machine can type in a URL, select a date range, and then begin surfing on an archived version of the Web. Imagine surfing circa 1999 and looking at all the Y2K hype, or revisiting an older version of your favorite Web site. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine can make all of this possible.* Another MUST SEE site! If it was out there once before on the Internet, they have it archived!

Scroogle -
Use Scroogle to search my web site or the Internet!


WilliamAFord.com Scroogle.org

The Top 100 Alternative Search Engines - Written by Charles S. Knight, SEO, and edited by Richard MacManus. Ask anyone which search engine they use to find information on the Internet and they will almost certainly reply: "Google." Look a little further, and market research shows that people actually use four main search engines for 99.99% of their searches: Google, Yahoo!, MSN, and Ask.com (in that order). But in my travels as a Search Engine Optimizer (SEO), I have discovered that in that .01% lies a vast multitude of the most innovative and creative search engines you have never seen. So many, in fact, that I have had to limit my list of the very best ones to a mere 100.

But it's not just the sheer number of them that makes them worthy of attention; each one of these search engines has that standard "About Us" link at the bottom of the homepage. I call it the "why we're better than Google" page. And after reading dozens and dozens of these pages, I have come to the conclusion that, taken as a whole, they are right!
