The ThrashBox™

The ThrashBox™

In November 2003, I invented an interesting CSS technique for semantic, rounded corner boxes using CSS. What that translates into non-geek-speak is that you get pretty boxes with no extra bulky XHTML markup. David Shea liked it and blogged it. Jeffrey Zeldman refused to publish an article because I had asked for some feedback from the folks on the CSS-Discuss list (from whence Dave got the blog reference) … he considered it “already published”. This was just as they were working on their earliest rounded corner box articles and before they were published. As I recall, even Eric Meyers commented on CSS-D that he liked it and might even use the technique … the highest praise possible from an aspiring CSSer!

This book answers two questions. The first question is “Why should I make my web site more accessible?” If you do not have a web site, this book is not for you. The second question is “How can I make my web site more accessible?” If you are not convinced by the first answer, you will not be interested in the second.

What JHymn is meant to do
Let me start with what JHymn is not meant to do. JHymn is not meant to aid music piracy. I personally love shopping for music at the iTunes Music Store (I have nearly 900 legally-purchased songs so far, at the time of this writing), I’m happy to pay for the music I get, and I wish Apple all the success in the world at making legal music downloads a viable, profitable business.
