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.

New AccessKeys.js

A while back, I unveiled a Javascript trick for making accesskey keybindings editable by the user. Rich Pedley noticed a bug in my implementation. Which necessitates the release of a new version: AccessKeys.js 0.12.

Share and enjoy!

Update (4/4/2006):

The indefatigable Mr. Pedley discovered that Accesskeys.js was not working in IE/6. The reason turned out to be Internet Explorer’s … ahemincomplete and quirky implementation of the setAttribute()/getAttribute() DOM methods. So I’ve revised the Javascript, yet again, to compensate.

Re: New AccessKeys.js

Unfortunately, there now appears to be another error - though I’m not sure if the original had it in or not.

It no longer works in IE6…

Re: New AccessKeys.js

It’s clearly broken on your site. But that’s true, not just in IE6, but in all browsers (as I emailed you).
