  2. Jeremy Keith — Hijax

    Hijax is all about apply ing pro gres sive enhance ment to Ajax. In the Hijax model, JavaScript isn’t used for advanced inten sive pro cess ing. Instead, the XMLHttpRequest object acts like a dumb waiter, pass ing infor ma tion back wards and for wards between the client and the server. By hijack ing the reg u lar func tion al ity and replac ing it with an enhanced Ajax ver sion, you can be assured that your web site will work with or with­out Ajax.

  3. Mark Boulton — Designing grid systems

    Grid systems have been used in print design, architecture and interior design for generations. Now, on the web, the same rules of grid system composition and usage no longer apply. Content is viewed in many ways; from RSS feeds to email. Content is viewed on many devices; from mobile phones to laptops. Users can manipulate the browser, they can remove content, resize the canvas, resize the typefaces. A designer is no longer in control of this presentation. So where do grid systems fit in to all that?
