One of the important things the figure illustrates is that the text inside an element is not part of that element. Finally, the page also contains images: It does seem that there are quite a few “critical” bits, I know! Another step to CSS guru-hood is understanding exactly what each browser does wrong, and how you can work around those failings.
Processing happens as follows.
Not so here, as the text is kept refreshingly free of unending details about different browser implementations of DOM methods, instead simply guiding you in the right direction of code branching and feature testing so your code will work as well as possible in each browser.
While it can be a lot of work, many CSS bugs only become apparent with the complex use of this technology; most CSS is handled perfectly across platforms and browsers without the need for hacks or complex tests. The addListeners function uses another familiar technique; it iterates through all the links on the page and does something to them. A large subset of DHTML scripts work by setting on page load some event listeners that will be called as various elements in the browser fire events.
The code above is flawed: Failing thatwe attach the event listener directly to the element, as an event handler; this is required for IE5 on Macintosh.
This allows us to put browser objects in all scripts, and use them only when our detection code gets around to it: HTML that complies with these rules is said to be “valid. However, there are no standards to describe how invalid HTML should be interpreted; each browser maker has established their own rules to fill that gap.
Looking at the above code may make this clearer. This returns a copy of the node, including all its attributes ytopia all its children. If a match for the regular moderb is found in the string, it is replaced by the substitute string. Each browser fixes malformed content in a different way, which can generate such horrors as an element that is its own parent node.
Some users find this useful; others find it heartily annoying.
It would be possible, given our event-handling techniques above, to give them the choice. Think of it as though you were shooting a scene for a movie. The keypress event is nonstandard i. This is where things get a little complicated. This isn’t a good approach to use. The top-left corner of the big image should be in the top-left corner of the viewing area: The upshot of this exercise is that all the cells in the same column as the moused-over cell will have class hi ; the table row containing the cell will also have class hi.
For a document thumbnail such as this, we can use the cursor to move around the document within the viewing area, so that we can read the content and see if it’s the document we want. No surprises there, so we grab the required DOM element:. Instead, the approach taken is to use one of fom getElementsBy Whatever methods to grab a particular part of the tree directly.
We’ll explore and fix! Vhtml the variable node points to the ul element of the DOM tree.
The first line above executes the first task. Unfortunately, the clientX and clientY properties of the event object are nowhere near as reliable. Perhaps more importantly, the DOM3 recommendation does not mention a keypress event. We then manipulate xhtml position of that background image so that it moves in accordance with the cursor.
When we mouse-over a thumbnail image, though, the display javascrupt that thumbnail changes to show the actual image to which it’s linked, as shown in Figure 4.
