Blogger Migration pt5

Migration progress.

After those server time-out problems appeared to have gone away, I’ve managed to get all my posts up to July migrated. Still crap loads to go though.

Delays in migration progress.

The fairly large amount of posts was always going to be a problem, but I keep forgetting to adjust header values to fit with the template I’m using here. Can’t wait for the XHTML 2 all-purpose header tag. Early posts used an <h1> tag in the post below an <h3> tag in published output and later posts used a more semantic <h4>. What was an <h4> is now an <h3>.

Let’s not forget ISP screw ups and intermittent service outages.

My problem with WordPress.com’s HTML filtering system.

The little ‘security’ feature they have in place means I can’t use <dfn> tags for my potentiallyOffensive coding experiment (you’ll read more about potentiallyOffensive experiment when I get the posts migrated), and also cause problem with my class=”hidden” and class=”offscreen” coding experiments.

potentiallyOffensive.

It’s a little experiment relating to censorship, freedom of speech and freedom of choice.

class=”hidden” & class=”offscreen”.

Personally I hate seeing full stops at the end of lists and header tags- <dt> and <th> included. The reason I put them there in the first place is back when I was working for Connexions, I was experimenting with some screen reader software, and the dumb piece of crap didn’t put a pause after each header or <li> tag in the navigation list. So I had to put full stops in the <li> tags, but hide them from view. Thus class=”hidden” was born (yes I realise other people may use it, but that was when I first used it). More recently I’ve needed to have some full stops (or other text) be hidden in @media screen, projection etc, and apparent in @media print, aural, braille, embossed, and others hidden in just @media screen, print, projection, handheld etc. Thus class=”offscreen” was born (early posts in Blogspot used class=”hidden”, later ones used class=”offscreen”).

However I have noticed that the code disappeared between manual coding (I don’t like WYSIWYG editors) and publishing.
