With jQuery, you use $(document).ready() to execute something when the DOM is loaded and $(window).load() to execute something when all other things are loaded as well, such as the images. Click through for more details.

jRespond is a script that holds a list of user-defined functions that are fired based on the browser’s width compared to a list of customizable breakpoints. Entry and exit functions can be defined so transitions between breakpoints can be managed by removing and unbinding some page elements while creating and binding others. jRespond was built to be independent and browser agnostic. It does NOT sniff for media queries in the stylesheets.
HTML Entities and/or ISO Latin-1 codes can be placed in source code like any other alphanumeric characters to produce special characters and symbols that cannot be generated in HTML with normal keyboard commands.
For example, to render Düsseldorf the HTML source should read
Düsseldorf or Düsseldorf
While many similar lists are available on the Web (run your favorite search engine using “ISO Latin” or “HTML Entities”), none I’ve seen account for the standard character sets of different operating systems (e.g. Windows vs. DOS vs. Macintosh, etc.); this list should produce the same results on all platforms.

People don’t like to think about or talk about URLs. Unless someone know how their website works in detail, there is a chance for URL confusion. Even technically-minded people gloss over when talking about the details around what is happening with the fundamental pieces of a URL.
Because this seems so common, I thought I would devote some time to discussing each piece of the URL and what the significance is. The example used is a DotNetNuke (DNN) URL. I will start with the very basic and expand from there.

Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 13 years to get that many views.

What better way to showcase your products than by giving them the stage?
This is the concept behind a growing trend in e-commerce web design – going minimal.
In the past many online stores took the opposite approach to design. Sites were often cluttered with information, fonts and colors were overwhelming, and sites were quite simply “over-designed”.
Now, many sites are ditching models, crazy colors and fonts, and fancy photography for the simplistic style of just showcasing their products. It’s a trend that is taking over much of the web (not just e-commerce) with the emergence of responsive design models. More designers are embracing the trend that simpler can be better, while focusing on readability and usability.
The result is a better experience for online shoppers, with cleaner interfaces, text that is easier to read and interfaces that are simpler, faster and more user-friendly. This trend is about more than just design, it creates a better overall experience.
Think about the success of Apple and its online store. Simple and direct can equal sales. Here, we take a look at the trend, companies that are doing it well and tips for making it work for you.
