Tried to improve the HTML interface for my legacy integration engine the last two weeks. Javascript compatibility between the three major browsers, Mozilla, Opera, and IE is still low, very low. Gave up on Opera 6 and bought Opera 7. A lot better. What was interesting is that it is possible to do some nice tricks in HTML now. Refreshing comboboxes for example without resubmitting a form.

Expect to see a lot more Javascript the next weeks. Have to write some tree mapper window or field to field mapping code with it.

Joab Jackson has written a good article about Eiffel. When he approached me, I admit I was a bit sceptical what kind of article it would become, but it's good and complete. Job well done.
