All I can say is Wow!
Squishdot Posted by Alvin P. Phillips on Thursday July 29, 07:42PM, 1999
from the I can't believe it's not butter dept.
You should have called it Ginsu!
I saw the technocrat.net announcement on slashdot and meandered my way over to squishdot. Now all I can say is wow! I had a fresh mandrake install and I had been thinking of playing with Zope, but I hadn't really started. Less than a half hour into it, I had a functional site running. Now I've got to freshen up some new graphics and start some discussions with my friends. Thanks a million for this great stuff!

You can see my short effort at Riptide

    All looks peculiar in KFM webbrowser
    by Avus on Tuesday August 03, 03:48PM, 1999
    I haven't done any closer examination yet, but in kfm (the KDE web/file browser, the posted articles are rendered "one word per line".

    Obviously, this makes the whole think pretty hard to read. The responses and the response form are rendered correctly, and so is the main page.
    (Well, except that "Allowed HTML" is written over the tags...)

    I don't know if this is a kfm problem or if the HTML coding is a bit sloppy, but as the kfm is pretty popular for 'quick browsing', this may be of interest to the Squishdot developers.

    And no, Slashdot doesn't show the same behaviour (although the W3C validator complains heavily).

    Its probably due to sloppy HTML... does this
    behavior also happen when using the 'plain vanilla' versions? As I don't have access to KDE,
    I can't fix or test this out -- volunteers, anyone? -- Butch

      Yes, out of the box.
      Apparently a table tag within a td tag of another table is not valid HTML. Try and check your pages with http://validator.w3.org. Netscape is very tolerant in this respect, but other browsers aren't.

      (OT question: How do you make a 'link' in Zope, so that a Zope object appears in another URL location than in the object tree. E.g. localhost/news instead of localhost/Users/Someone/News, without copying the object?)
