Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sven Triloqvist:
I once did a sketch where I walked on stage with a wooden pizza paddle (thin round thing on a stick that they take out the pizzas from the oven with). I said "kekkoken, kekkoken, kekkoken".  and got a good laugh. It was my first joke in Finnish...

The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia

President Bush said today that he was pleased that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales had acknowledged mistakes surrounding the dismissals.

I had to clean up the list mark-up on the NYT example (as you said above would probably be necessary). Otherwise, perfect.

What did happen that I don't understand : I had the sidebar open. I copied in the NYT piece. I wasn't sure I had it right, so I copied it a second time (ie chose Copy html etc in the right-click menu, for the second time.) Nothing happened. I supposed Copy 2 had pasted over Copy 1 and moved on to select a piece from a page in The Independent. Clicked the Copy html etc choice in the right-click menu. Got Copy 2 of the NYT in the sidebar. (ie I now had two copies visible of the NYT). Clicked Copy html etc again on the Independent selection. Got four copies from the Independent in the sidebar (above the two from NYT). Got worried about geometric progression and stopped...

I also have a Windows clipboard extension running (Ditto) that stores all clipboard entries in a file. Could there be interference?

Hmn. I don't know... As I said above, there was a typo that prevents <li> tags from being allowed, but does let </li> tags through. This causes some problems since the html is now broken. (For example, popups don't work for such items.) Try to clear the sidebar. This will restore all the files to default. Do you have a problem copying stuff that doesn't contain lists? I'll fix broken things that popup during the day and put out a new version. I'll install Ditto and see what happens.

Ditto has not yet caused any major problems for me. Though it is clear I need to do some more Html cleanup.

Your HTML has the following errors :

  • Attribute CLASS for tag P is not allowed
  • Attribute STYLE for tag UL is not allowed
  • Attribute TYPE for tag UL is not allowed
  • Attribute STYLE="" for tag LI is not allowed
  • Attribute CLASS for tag LI is not allowed

I now have a problem with the search function of the Firefox bookmarks sidebar. It performs the search and brings up the item, but the item is unclickable with either left or right buttons. (Though, if I scroll down to find the item myself, I can click and no problem).

The Firefox version I have installed is, not v. 2. Could that have anything to do with it?

Nope, that's a bug on my side. Fixed now.

Yeah, that was what came out of the NYT copy. But I did choose it deliberately because I expected it to have some fancy stuff in there. It wasn't hard to straighten out (take out the CLASS-es and put in the li-s).
