This is a good article by Peter Gasston and worth the read. Unfortunately I am 12 and can’t make it through the whole thing without chuckling when I read “flexible box.”

Some great notes by Thomas Fuchs. He points out several counterintuitive and arcane peculiarities of WebKit’s rendering of neat new CSS3 features.

Gradients using nothing but CSS and JavaScript? Cool.

Alert reader Chris S. emailed me to point out this post by a developer at flickr about how to make IE scale images more smoothly. All you have to do is add
img { -ms-interpolation-mode:bicubic; }
to the stylesheet. It worked! Note that all the other browsers use bicubic interpolation for scaling by default, because that’s the only thing that make sense, but IE requires a non-standard CSS extension. So, pictures on this site should be a little smoother for those of you determined to use Internet Explorer. Happy Hannuka! (via From the Department of Badly Chosen Defaults - Joel on Software)
