While I’ve learned HTML back in the day when there weren’t any WYSIWYG editors yet (1996), I’ve always believed in their added value. I never developed websites entirely in the ‘Design view’ (even not during my table-based period), but I always appreciated the fact that I had the choice to switch between ‘Code view’ and ‘Design view’. During my table-based’ period I used DreamWeaver’s ‘Split view’ a lot, this way I kept an eye on what was happening under the hood. If you select an item in the ‘Design view’, the corresponding code is highlighted, a real time saver if you ask me.

On Wednesday we had a few hours left to stroll around Paris a bit. Paris is such a beautiful city. It is a busy city with wide lanes and a lot of cars but the way everything is arranged you still don’t get disturbed by it. Sorry for my UK buddies but I personally find it much nicer then London, hard to explain but it has a sort of a romantic sense to it and we only scratched the surface. In London you get the feeling that traffic gets priority over the pedestrian. It gave me the feeling of being sucked in a hectic pool sometimes. In Paris they spend more thought in making it as comfortable as possible for the pedestrian, like wide sidewalks with trees etc.
So have a look yourself on my Flickr page. Hope they can make you daydream a bit ;-)

End of Summer yesterday but not according to the weather gods. In other words such a beautiful day for a visit to the “City of Light”. We arrived at noon after a 3 hour drive from our hometown. It’s amazing that we survived Place de la Porte De Maillot and Place de l’Etoile. Driving there is a bit like in the Far West, a place where there aren’t any rules anymore and it is everybody for themselves. The weapon of choice is the hooter and you got to have eyes everywhere. A bit of a nightmare if you haven’t got a clue where to go… Luckily our kamikaze driver Kenneth did! :-D

Today Apple Expo Paris 2005 starts. To great disappointment of many there isn’t a keynote of Steve Jobs at Palais des CongrÃ¯Â¿Â½s. We had plans to go too, it was our intention to leave for Paris late Monday afternoon and explore Paris a bit in the evening, stay at a nice hotel and wake up early for the keynote. We still don’t know exactly what the reason behind this cancelation was. I can’t imagine that the iPod nano was the culprit here, but whatever the real reason (if any) is only time will tell. So time for plan B ;-)

Here at Duoh! it’s time to say goodbye to some old but trusty friends who served us well. So like any good parents we are looking for some folks that would take good care of our buddies and give them a pleasant home. I am talking about some original iMacs.

Who says you only need Photoshop for your designs for the web? Say you have to create a small button to promote a book and you want the font in a tiny pixel font sharp and crispy. On the other hand the illustration needs to be as flexible as possible. So do I choose Illustrator or Photoshop? The answer is simple choose Illustrator and use the Rasterize effect. Select your text path using the Selection Tool and choose ‘none’ as anti-aliasing option. It’s as easy as that!

Quark is trying desperate to regain lost ground to Adobe by making much noise about the upcoming Quark 7. Rumor has it that the entire company is going through a change from the top.
