Amazing milestone for a website

We have reached 10 years old, a fair age for any website. Actually the domain was registered in October 2002, the site started with the CSS Generator and I added the forum in March 2003. October 2002 So we are actually closer to 10.5 years old. I would like to thank all the people who have been involved, specially the moderators who keep this place running when I leave it in auto pilot mode.

Open Letter to Spammers

Hi there,

Before you post please consider something. We, that is the people that make tech forums like this one viable and useful for the community, keep them alive and provide a little of our experience, and time for free, really do not appreciate people taking advantage of them for what they think is possibly useful SEO gaming, we have to deal with the threads created, wasting our time and more importantly taking the time we may spend helping someone with a genuine need and chucking it away dealing with the utter drivel you post.

text-overflow

Text-overflow effects inline content when it overflows it's block container. Overflow can only occur if the block container has an overflow value of something other then visible and when white-space is set to no-wrap.

ellipsis: Renders an ellipsis character (U+2026) or three dots "..." to represent clipped inline content.

clip: Clips inline content that overflows, any extra characters will not be visible. Characters may be only partially rendered.

border-image

Border-image enables the use of images as borders. It overrides the border-style property which can act as a fallback if the image is unavailable or border-image in not supported.
Border-image is shorthand for the following properties with there initial values:
border-image-source: none;
border-image-slice: 100%;
border-image-width: 1;
border-image-outset: 0;
border-image-repeat: stretch;

The image can be sliced using 4 length values: top, right, bottom, left. Which creates a grid of 9 areas, the 4 corners, 4 sides and the center which is unused.

HTML5 anchor name & target

An named anchor, so you could target section of the page, like jump to content, used to be

<a name="content"></a>
notice no href.
You could access it in a link prefixing the name with a '#' like
<a href="#content">Jump to content</a>
This is still supported by browsers but no longer valid HTML5.

The name attribute is obsolete. Consider putting an id attribute on the nearest container instead.

Or you could add '#content' without the quotes to the end of the url in the browsers address bar.
