British web developer working with HTML5, CSS3, PHP, jQuery. I feel equally at home on Mac, Windows and Linux.

Most of my projects involve things like small data collection forms, connecting with APIs. My guiding philosophy is pragmatism. I know that it's a rare project can follow every best practice. Instead, I try to do it so that it works, and then come back and fix it later.

I'm here on Stack Overflow to learn how to improve my communication skills - both hearing and telling. So please feel free to give me any feedback you think would help me.

comment Static pages for large photo album
@John The OP is asking for a non-PHP solution that won't require maintenance. That rules out Drupal and Joomla, and many off-the-shelf CMSes. I like Drupal, but it requires frequent security updates so wouldn't be a good low-maintenance solution.

@astro11 PS - it's just a screengrab of the second paragraph in John's answer to this question.

@astro11 It's Helvetica, which is typically used on a Mac instead of Arial.

comment Why do many websites have so many javascript includes?
And you can use something like Ant to compress and minify all the scripts into one. Html5Boilerplate handles this for you.

@astro11 Was there a significant difference between Mac Safari and Windows Safari with the font rendering?

@astro11 - the images are above. Not very obviously because they are screenshots of text but they are underneath the browser names with the 'These can be manipulated easily...' text from John's answer.

And don't use a different browser, since cookies are not shared between browsers.
