  Unfortunate Python


Python is a wonderful language, but some parts should really have bright WARNING signs all over them. There are features that just can't be used safely and others are that are useful but people tend to use in the wrong ways. This is a rough transcript of the talk I gave at my local Python group on November 15, with some of the audience feed back mixed in. Most of this came from hanging around the Python IRC channel, something I highly recommend. [update 2011-12-19: improved "array" cr...

  Advanced event registration models


On this page I explain the two advanced event registration models: W3C’s and Microsoft’s. Since neither is cross–browser supported, their use is, for the moment, deprecated. W3C and Microsoft have both developed their own event registration model to replace Netscape’s traditional model. Though I’m not impressed by the Microsoft model, W3C’s is very good, except for one crucial vagueness. Unfortunately few browsers support it at the moment. W3C W3C’s DOM Level 2 Event specificati...
