A List Apart: Articles: Prettier Accessible Forms

A LIST Apart: For People Who Make Websites

It can be time consuming to make web forms both pretty and accessible. In particular, laying out forms where the form label and input are horizontally adjacent, as in the image below, can be a real problem. We used to use tables, which worked well in this scenario—but forms don’t constitute tabular data, so it’s a semantic faux pas.

Want to find out how the 2.0 specification improves on the old? This book will explain.

While i'm taking a closer look at color, i should also look at font style, font size, layout, etc.

Regarding Color of Links and Accessibiltiy

Seele makes a good point about the color of links or color in general on websites.

First of all i'm not sure i really want links to stand out. I'd prefer that people read my articles in entirely before being distracted by foreign sites. I'll have to think about this more.

Currently, links are dark blue, providing little difference compared to normal text. They become underlined when you put the mouse cursor over them. I like Eli's idea of underlining when the mouse enters the "article" space. He says this is broken in Internet Explorer (IE). Personally i don't give a rat's ass about IE. I think submitting to broken browsers won't improve information technology. While no browser is perfect -- i've found 2 deficiencies in Firefox -- IE is terrible.

I do care about accessibiltiy. Seele refers to a great site that displays your site as a color blind person would see it. It's called Vischeck.

I'm not sure why my site gives Seele a headache when it's only slightly different from Eli's in this respect. Despite this TrickleUp is written entirely from scratch (over 100 php classes), needs improvement, and gets it when i have spare time. I think i will assume that people use a mouse or some sort of 2D cursor. Thus i can use CSS's hover pseudo-class. I will pick up Eli's trick to underline when the mouse enters the article. I will also change the background-color when the mouse is over the link, as i do in the left menu for list items. We'll see how that looks.

Colors Based on Time

The colors on my website are now a function of time. The header background color is based on the day of the year representing the seasons and and body background color is based on the hour of the day.

I've had this idea for a very long time and finally i've implemented it. How did i do it you ask? My stylesheet is dynamically generated using PHP.

There's still some work to do. First, the color of text much change along with the background color. Second for the season colors, i need something like white for Winter, green/yellow for Spring, orange/red for Summer, and brown/gray for Autumn. The colors need to fade from one to the next. Third, other parts of the web page need to be included.

Another feature i'd like to add is modifying the colors based on the weather at the time. I've seen this done on Dunstan's Blog.

Gila Style, Debian, Bacardi

I'm switching back to Gila. After all Sinorca was just temporary. I still need to do lots of touch ups, but i feel like writing code.

Yes my friends, after all your protests, i'm going to put Debian on my G5. Oh yes, it shall be a power plant of productivity. I'm preparing to blow away OS X this weekend.

Did you hear that Bacardi is planning to buy Grey Goose. I know, tell me about it!
