The next time XHTML comes up in casual conversation, be sure to talk about this article: An XHTML Roadmap for Designers.

JaSMin, a JavaScript MinXML Parser: "As far as I know JaSMin parses MinXML completely correct, and adds support for empty tags and optional whitespace folding."
Xparse "is a fully compliant* well-formed XML parser written in less than 5k of JavaScript."
XML code doodlings: "Here is a simple non-validating XML parser written in JavaScript."
From the USA Today: Web develops amazing new tangles.
The Internet might seem a little worn out. Investors are abandoning it. Analysts worry that nothing exciting is coming. To many users, what was radical just a couple of years ago is now ho-hum. But on the horizon, there's a new wave of the Internet beginning to break. It's been building even while the industry trudges through these rough times. For typical users, the Internet experience will change drastically over the next year or two. The hope is that the developments will reignite the industry.
Using Brent Ashley's JavaScript Remote Scripting (JSRS) code, we could have accomplished something similar to the new 5k contest non-reloading rating system without resorting to targeting an iframe.

Microsoft has a remote scripting tool too, but it requires the use of a java applet.

Here's an article from IBM's deverloperWorks on using remote scripting with a servlet.
JavaScripting Netscape 6: No More Sloppy Code:
This article shows how to adapt your JavaScript and HTML to support Netscape 6 and the DOM. Using real-world examples we illustrate several common coding techniques that fail in DOM-compliant browsers, and offer some solutions. Essentially, Netscape 6 forces you to clean up your sloppy code.
So we are runnning behind schedule on the launch of this years 5k contest, but as of tomorrow you will be able to submit your entry online. And as of today, rating the entries is a whole lot easier. We replaced the drop down menu rating system with a simple single click system, like netflix.com, amihotornot.com, or epinions.com. If you are using a modern browser, the page will not even reload. We're targeting an iframe which dynamically updates the rating box when your rating is submitted. Check it out.

Chris Wetherell has beta launched an online XML XSL Editor. I don't have the time to check it out, but if you do, be sure to let him know what you think of it.
I am working on a series of cross-browser CSS layout tests, and although I am not nearly finished, I posted an early draft of one to a mailing list the other day. I though you might like to see it too. It works roughly the same on IE5 Mac and PC, and NS6. It's close in Opera 5.

I am swamped with a bunch a stuff I am not enjoying, which is keeping me from doing stuff I do enjoy, namely finishing up the online entry application for The 5k Contest, which begins accepting entries on the 1st of March.

Meanwhile, scottandrew.com has all the DHTML and code links you need.
