On web typography

Back in 2009, Jason Santa Maria wrote a great article, “On Web Typography,” for A List Apart. I want to restyle this blog and fonts are one of the first things to think about.

Handsontable: an Excel-like table editor for HTML & jQuery

Smashing Magazine turned me on to Handsontable, “a minimalistic approach to Excel-like table editor in HTML & jQuery.”

Handsontable features:

  • Automatic adding of new rows and columns
  • Undo and redo
  • Copy & paste
  • Column and row headers
  • Scrollbars within containers
  • Drag to fill cell values
  • Right-click context menu
  • Custom buttons
  • Conditional formatting
  • Prepopulating new rows from a template

Sounds very cool.
