View Full Version : This site: "code" snippets
05-04-2004, 09:33 AM
On my computers (Macs), why do all the code snippets extend off the right of the window and fail to have up-down scrolling -- when required?
Sometimes I just cannot read / use these snippets...

What browser are you using?

I'm moving this to the 'Feedback' forum, since it appears you're having trouble with the site.

I suspect (especially since he's just come over from the Darkside) that he's using Internet Exploiter. Dgringo, you should drop that browser and move onto Safari, or Camino, or one of the myriad of other OS X browsers. IE is pretty much a dead horse that Microsoft has given up flogging.

I will say I have been using Safari for ~two years although (~3 months ago) have been looking into Camino. If IE is pretty much dead (I wish), why do so many web-sites insist on IE and or PC s/w support? Perhaps not, but they do not work right on my Macs.
I have been really Mac for the last ~2-2.5 years, although only really started pushing my (now varied) development efforts. Being currently between jobs, what site is best to ask for guidance on my new different but skilled IT life?
PS. I do like that most Mac s/w does not expand to the full screen -- although Camino does :(
PPS. Using Camino seems to have sorted the 'snippet' issues.

Most sites assume (and rightly so) that you will be connecting to their website on a WinTelThon, and most people use the built-in browser, IE. IE is dead for the Mac, that is why Apple developed Safari. IE will no longer be developed as a downloadable web browser for Windows. It will be integrated into all future versions of the Windows OS.

... in light of the Department of Justice's fight with Microsoft and the more recent judgments made against MS in the European Union. It's just funny that they are still going to build their browser into their OSes and just drop their pants and moon anyone who doesn't like it.
[BTW, I disapprove of their strategy, which is an attempt to bankrupt any and all browser makers].

Yep. Business as usual.

A partial solution for Mac 10.3 Users. The Applescript URI will open code in Script Editor - but not execute it. See here for more: http://www.apple.com/applescript/scripteditor/12.html
Could also be used for other scripts. Or does the recent URI security issue make people too nervous to use this?
To open this script in Script Editor, press here (applescript://com.apple.scripteditor?action=new&script=display dialog "Hello, MacOSXHints Users")
FYI, the code encoded in the above hyperlink reads:
display dialog "Hello, MacOSXHints Users"
