comment Is it possible to make an XML sitemap pretty enough to show to users?
@w3d Well, there's XSL-FO and XPath, which I don't recall if it falls under the XSL banner, but both of those are needed by some to do further manipulation of documents that XSLT can't do on its own.

@StephenOstermiller Without giving it any thought at all, the code should be the same.

No but, years ago, I used to serve my personal web site from XML as XHTML as I described. XSLT is a different animal.

comment Why isn't the HTML break tag acceptable anymore for top and bottom margins?
@Mike Styles are applied after CSS is downloaded, not before.

@Mike And if every div had a class assigned to it of "X", you could put down, once in your CSS, .X { margin-bottom:1em } and cover them all while keeping the DOM light.

@Mike It's incorrect semantically because your usage is not semantically correct. You are attributing design success with adding incorrect elements. If margin is what you need, use margin. Breaks won't make the difference.

comment Getting mobile site warnings from Google despite having a separate mobile site
Actually, your link confirms what I said. It is not a penalty but you gain by doing so.

@StephenOstermiller Google clarifies this later and explicitly states you will NOT be penalized. I'll look for that.

comment Huge drop [50%] in traffic after HTTPS move
@dhaupin And what I'm saying is you are expecting significant changes by just using SSL or being mobile friendly. That's not true.

comment Huge drop [50%] in traffic after HTTPS move
@dhaupin You need facts to show mobile is a huge force on the internet? You don't know that SSL helps with MITM attacks and eavesdropping? I don't know if that site is a spammer site but it doesn't show on of the searches I tried. You seem to think that just going SSL and mobile-friendly will significantly affect your ranking but even Google says this isn't so and would only gain you a few "points". You are only looking at the surface of things without understanding the ideas behind it.

comment Why is px often prefered over pt even though both depend on an “unknown” device parameter?
Still no time to go into this but this may help: inamidst.com/stuff/notes/csspx There are articles on the web about pixels, CSS pixels, device pixels. Group them together and do a search.

@dhaupin Your opinion flies in the face of all facts. Mobile is now a major factor in online usage and, in many cases, dominates the landscape. Malicious and spam attacks have always been a problem. Both SSL and mobile-friendly addresses both those issues whether Google was around to support it or not.
