Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

No More Sore Thumb

I couldn’t stand the trailing

[OpenPGP Signature]

on PGP-signed comments any longer. Visually, it looked bad. And it was a markup-eyesore too, glommed onto the end of the Comment-Body, with just a few <br />s to set it off from the text of the comment.

So I fixed the CGI code to do it right. Much less visually jarring, and perfectly semantic XHTML. (OK, … 5 points off for using the phrase “semantic XHTML”; really, I’m not that sort of guy.)

I am also less than happy with the CGI code which generates the comment verification. It spits out perfectly acceptable XHTML; I’d just prefer the markup to be controlled by the templates, rather than by the CGI code. Much more flexible. If I get the energy, I’ll fix that too, and send my changes on to Srijith.

Update (3/30/2004): OpenPGPComment 1.5 incorporates this fix.
