Angel H



  • So I'm looking at the online menu for a local restaurant, and I see this:

    Looks a bit odd, especially since you can see that something comes after the H.

    So I View Source:

    <span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: futura; color: windowtext;">Specials&nbsp;include&nbsp;homemade&nbsp;garlic&nbsp;bread&nbsp;and&nbsp;$1&nbsp;off&nbsp;any&nbsp;soup&nbsp;or&nbsp;salad.&nbsp;Your&nbsp;choice&nbsp;of&nbsp;pasta:&nbsp;Spaghetti,&nbsp;Angel&nbsp;Hair,&nbsp;Spinach&nbsp;Fettuccini,&nbsp;Linguine,&nbsp;Penne,&nbsp;Rotini,&nbsp;or&nbsp;Whole&nbsp;Wheat&nbsp;Spaghetti</span>
    

    Would those technically be breaking spaces? They don't break the line, just the layout.

    WTF? Is that some kind of horrible CMS issue?



  • Yeah, I'm figuring some sort of stupid page generator.



  • There's your answer:

    I have never even seen something like that monstrosity come out of DreamWeaver, and that is saying something.

  • One of my former co-workers, a "senior" developer didn't know that <center> text-align:center was a thing, found out that you can crash IE with somewhere around 300 &nbsp;s



  • So nice that Discourse treats pasta as a keyword.

    [spoiler]I know it's because of the : after it, but still funny, you naysayers. [/spoiler]

    I don't know... you didn't mention whether his specialty was backend, and IE problems are in such high supply that developers have a very low opinion of IE users.

    IE User Categories:

    • Developers who test their software for IE compatibility.
    • Technophobes who shouldn't be using the internet.

    In what universe is something like this sane?

    Discodevs have been touched by His noodly appendage.

    So I View Source:

    View sauce, surely?



  • Omg you asshole, I couldn't scroll the page on android chrome because it would just scroll your scrolling codebox.

  • @PJH, request for @accalia-themed badge where you're evil, but that's the exact opposite of your intent.


  • sockdevs

    :blush:

    I'm flattered you thought i was evil!



  • The bot thing...you had good intentions...

    i think you'll find i'm not the first to write a bot. just the most successfull/persistant

    and my intentions were far from good.

    they were more mischievous than good (or evil really)



  • @chubertdev said:

    Now that's what I call a breaking space!



  • One would assume they were expecting to control it from the backend... I didn't say it was sane. :P.

    - Windows Phone users because there's literally not a single alternative browser that's good enough to become replacement. And I tested like a dozen (half of them were fake Chromes).


  • I like how @chubertdev's post renders differently depending on context.

    Can't be bothered to see why it's being rendered differently though.
