Re: [RFC] CSS Image Sprites

I do somewhat agree with Ishimaru Chiaki. Image sprites and any use of CSS should be used for style purposes, not content purposes.

Re: phpBB 3.0.9 Release Candidate 1 published

I did it without using the page. Now I finished updating my styles, but I just hope that the stable version will be released before or after my 2-weeks vacation that I'll spend at my fifth wheel trailer for the whole second half of July. I won't have the net (Mom doesn't want any computer in our FW).

Re: [RFC] CSS Image Sprites

I didn't notice that you already posted in the stated topic. But what I'm trying to tell is that even the fanciest way to hide text while using CSS background for a content-bearing image cannot beat the good ol' ALT attribute of the IMG element.

Re: [RFC] CSS Image Sprites

A big problem with sprites is the it works only for CSS backgrounds which aren't recommended for content-bearing pics for accessibility reasons, for users such as people with very bad vision who have to use a high contrast setting that disable background images. To understand what I mean by this, I ...

Hello, I'm here to support *Daniel, as I have a bad vision too, even thought mine is less severe than his (I can use Ubuntu with default settings), but my vision might worsen anyway, as I have Leber Congenital Amaurosis that is an evolutive disease. Ok, I misunderstood your post. I thought it was fo...
