Today is a red letter day.

My Macromolecules paper has FINALLY been submitted.

Also, decided to play with some blogging software. Yes, I never thought I'd fall to those depths, but I have. If anyone cares, it is located here. Should spruce up the pages a bit...it's kinda fugly.

However, the "toy" to note is the "FishySidebar" link. That baby is the bomb (IMHO) if you have Mozilla. It converts the index.rdf into a Mozilla sidebar on the fly using libxslt. I have XSLT for rss 1.0, and 0.91. Should write one up for 0.90. The tough part was trying to get to XHTML 1.0 Strict compliance.

See, the problem is the following. The target attribute is not valid for XHTML 1.0 Strict. So, my current XSLT stylesheet has an ugly JS hack I found somewhere that pokes the DOM to add the target attribute. I don't like it. Anyone have a better suggestion?
