i don't think it's worth creating a new class for the +/-... i think you should use — instead of a hyphen in the +/-... style="cursor: hand" requires a closing semicolon... if you're going to add a 'commentitle' class, try to mimic the structure/names in the existing CSS.. or consider adjusting the <h4> - <h6> styles altogether (just set them all to the same color)... doesn't mean it's more correct, but it's worth thinking about... do we need new classes for the author name and time? i don't think so... this was also supposed to be span-free, using tags only for structure, and imparting style through those... there are three <span>s in there i don't think we need... class the anchor for the +/- (especially since the whole bar as an expando-thingie is too much since you can't highlight text and the hit area for the name is now too small compared to the rest)... IOW, remove the JS event from the <td> and insert it into an <a>, class that... does the author need a style? if you really think it does, put it in the <a>... i think it should go... i don't think the time needs one at all, the span and class should go... overall, every time we modify the page, nobody runs it through a validator, and on top of that, we keep adding more and more code, and everyon's got a different style... these pages take forever to render on my home machine... we don't need all this code we keep adding, but we keep going to town on it... and the page is now peppered with <span> tags... we also need to not add classes to the CSS... every time we do that, we're going to have to revisit the style changer and modify all the styles that go along with it... we have enough styles in there that we should be pretty good to go for a long time... doncha wish you hadn't asked? > From: "Isaac Forman" <isaac at triplezero.com.au> > > can people check this out and see what they think: > > http://test.evolt.org/article/expandomagico/21/10781/index.html > > the comment expand/collapse is a win/ie5+ only feature which jeff has > added. > > meanwhile, i've made the comment title black, reduced the > expand/collapse +/- a bit, and changed the colour and size of the > comment authorname.
