Microsoft Drop Conditional Comments in IE10
Microsoft added many features to Internet Explorer over the years. Several revolutionized the web forever (XMLHttpRequest, the DOM, XML tools, font embedding, browser add-ons). Some never caught on. Some were truly awful. Ensuring you web site or application works in all browsers is tough. It’s made particularly difficult when you have to support older editions of Internet Explorer. IE6 was released in 2001, IE7 in 2006, and IE8 appeared in 2009. Whatever your opinion of Microsoft, it’s unreasonable to expect a 10 year old browser to render the same as Firefox 5 or Chrome 12.

Tips and Tricks to Design with Pixel Perfection
Ever since Adobe Illustrator was launched, people wondered if they could make the transition and change the way they create and develop pixel-based artwork. As you know, before CS5 using Ai for vector pixel work was a kind of hard/clumsy process. Why? Because as opposed to Photoshop, which is a raster based software (which deals straightly with pixels), Illustrator is a vector program (that deals with points, lines and curves all mathematically drawn). In Illustrator’s early days, it wasn’t perfectly adapted to deal with the raw force of pixels. Luckily over the years things have changed for the better, and with the most recent CC version, Illustrator is becoming the “go to” tool for designers with pixel perfection in mind.

JavaScript Functions Tutorial
You’ve seen function values, such as alert, and how to call them. Functions are the bread and butter of JavaScript programming. The concept of wrapping a piece of program in a value has many uses. It is a tool to structure larger programs, to reduce repetition, to associate names with subprograms, and to isolate these subprograms from each other.

Functional Programming
As programs get bigger, they also become more complex and harder to understand. We all think ourselves pretty clever, of course, but we are mere human beings, and even a moderate amount of chaos tends to baffle us. And then it all goes downhill. Working on something you do not really understand is a bit like cutting random wires on those time-activated bombs they always have in movies. If you are lucky, you might get the right one ― especially if you are the hero of the movie and strike a suitably dramatic pose ― but there is always the possibility of blowing everything up.

JavaScript Functions
A function is a group of reusable code which can be called anywhere in your programme. This eliminates the need of writing same code again and again. This will help programmers to write modular code. You can divide your big programme in a number of small and manageable functions. Like any other advance programming language, JavaScript also supports all the features necessary to write modular code using functions.

Writing Your Own JavaScript Functions
In this chapter we're going to focus on a programming concept--writing your own functions. Knowing how to write your own functions will improve almost any JavaScript you create. In fact, you'll see how custom-made functions can enhance several of the JavaScript tricks you've already learned. In this chapter, you'll learn how to: Write your own functions Use homemade functions to improve your code Write functions you can cut and paste into whatever pages you want

HTML tutorial - The Basics
This is not intended to teach you everything there is to know. My hope is that after reading this, you will be able to use these examples to put together HTML formatted documents of your own. This tutorial is based on on the W3C recommendation, where the idea is to use CSS wherever possible, but to still include semantic HTML to support older browsers. I have also written a CSS tutorial to demonstrate its use.

Passing variables to referenced functions
This problem is encountered with event handlers and in other situations, such as when adding methods to an object. Most Web authors first encounter it with event handlers, so that is what this article will concentrate on, but you should be aware that it also applies to those other situations. In JavaScript, whether using traditional event handlers, or DOM events, event handlers are attached to their relevant object as a reference to the function.
