Notepad2, Harry Potter 6 and IE7.

While work continues behind the scenes on a new comments system and redesign, here are some things I've come across recently. Notepad2 is a stunning text editor for Windows, packed with features so useful you wonder how you managed without them. Code writers can benefit from such features as line numbering, tag highlighting and automatic closing of HTML tags. Those alone are winners (did I mention Notepad2 is also freeware?) yet there's a lot more. Do yourself a favour and download it today.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is to be the title of the sixth book in the series by JK Rowling. At the Edinburgh International Book Festival she had this to say. (Source: MSN Celebs News article.)

Readers should be asking themselves "Not, 'Why did Harry live?' but, 'Why didn't Voldemort die?'"

The second question they should think about is, "Why didn't Dumbledore kill, or try to kill, Voldemort?"

(Added 18th August 2004) Dean Edwards has rewritten some of his unofficial IE7 project to make it even better. This allows designers to make IE6 behave more like rival browsers, by using JavaScript to add missing features. These include fixed positioning, better CSS menu support (where hover actually works on lists), CSS3 selectors, even generated content! You've got to see it to believe it. Brilliant work, Dean.
