Never made a slide show before
Somehow I made it to the advanced age of __ without ever having made a slide show. Iâ€™ve never actually used PowerPoint or anything like that.
Iâ€™ve seen a bunch of slide show presentations, and Iâ€™ve sometimes thought, â€œHey, I could do better than this.â€ But now I have to actually do it.
The topic is embedded HTML/browsing and the user interface challenges it brings up. Some of it comes from the experience I had bringing browsing to NetNewsWire, but it will also look at other apps (other newsreaders, iTunes Music Store, mail apps, weblog editors, text editors, and so on).
(Ironically, my favorite example of embedded HTML is Mailsmith. It just doesnâ€™t do it. And thatâ€™s one of the big reasons I use it. For me, itâ€™s 99% true that if itâ€™s HTML email, itâ€™s spam. That wonâ€™t be true for everybody, of course.)
If you have any commentsâ€”such as that you love SubEthaEditâ€™s HTML preview because x or you think NetNewsWireâ€™s browser would be better if y or you wish the iTunes Music Store also did zâ€”Iâ€™d love to hear about it. Put on your user interface hat.
To be clear, the topic is not browsers, itâ€™s everything that displays HTML except for browsers.
