Lessons from the coal face

I've been having a few problems with css3pie lately, but it's not their fault. I really should have read the issues page. All I can say is, despite sizing using em everywhere else, use pixels with items using css3pie.

And on to improving my HTML template. There is an excellent template at, but it's a bit too big for me and I also like to get as many updates as I can without physically going to get them.

It does however, contain this line of code.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">
It forces Internet Explorer to get the latest rendering engine, thus make your pages work more reliably in the terrible browser. Of course, if you asked most people which browser they use, they'll say Google or Facebook. That's where we are, so there's no point in being upset about them not using Chrome or Firefox.

And so here is my new standard HTML page. As soon as Google start hosting version 3 of Yui, I'll include that, but I can't be bothered to chase the version numbers at this stage.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">
<title>Sharing data from the Facebook API</title>
<!--[if IE]>
<script src=""></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<script src=""></script>
google.load("jquery", "1");
google.load("jqueryui", "1");
<header><h1>Header 1</h1></header>
<section id="mainContent">
<p>Hello World!</p>
