    Christmas present idea: @sonia__harris’s very sweary patterned fabric, cushions, mugs, scarves, wrapping paper, etc. secretbean.com

    @felixthehat An li makes most sense to me… until some indefinable point at which there’s so much in it it should be an article! No clear cut point tho.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felixthehat And could you not apply the Article schema to an <li>?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felixthehat I think the spec that html5doctor quotes is old. w3.org/TR/html5/secti… now suggests it should be a “complete” article. Maybe.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @drcongo I used to use them wherever I could, but I’ve started to think maybe they should only be used for definitions of some kind…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore Yeah, but you know, I’m always trying to make things RIGHT. Among my other endlessly futile challenges.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore eg, I think the spec also used to say an <article> could, eg, be a comment… but now their example has comments as <li>s within an <article>

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @TaylorRajesh Yeah, this is more about the semantic representation of the information, rather than how it will eventually look on the page.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore I thought that for ages, then changed my mind… But now I think the spec’s changed because it seems an ‘article’ should be ‘complete’.

    HTML arguers! A list of blog posts, pictured. Should they be list items or a series of <article>s? I’m always changing my mind. Save me!

    @spaceboy @antimega I’ve never been to https://t.co/NGQRrHFuNk but sounds good. But closed until summer 2018.

    @iiicouk And your new password policy (8-12 chars, no “special characters”) is pretty poor too. I’m trusting you with my money!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Well done @iiicouk, having your brand new site be unable to list “recommended browsers” in Safari is a feat. Come on, get decent developers.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I mean, I know people who have trouble remembering passwords. But they don’t share them with the whole office and they don’t run a country.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I can’t think of a joke to make about MPs being incapable of remembering passwords, or of finding a way to not have to remember them.

    I still think this is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
