Time to get priorities straight. I have a lot to say about this, but maybe a clip of a WP saying, despite being 20 yrs old, what Kozol says in this clip about the relationship between white ppl and black ppl in America is bang on the money

Regularly annoying thing: While SVG was smart enough to follow HTML, MathML chose not to have an <a> tag. Instead, it's much "cleverer" and accepts href attributes everywhere, everything is a link. Hooray!
This ends up being terrible when you convert MathML to HTML or SVG. Now you need to wrap an anchor around whatever actually holds the content. How do you split up the attributes? The href goes to the <a> but the rest? Good luck.

Why is text content in pseudo-elements not highlighted when selected? Why is it not copied along?
I'm guessing the former because of the latter? But now that screenreaders voice pseudo content fairly consistently, the latter seems (even more) moot.
Also, what about SVG? Whyever is (not even inline) SVG content not highlighted when selected? Why can't we select and copy parts of an SVG (at least as roughly as we can with HTML)?
The Van Gogh Museum has digitalised and made available for download 986 of his paintings for non-commercial use! And there's contact information if you'd like to use it for commercial projects. A PDF with terms and conditions can be downloaded if you click the download button on a painting.
ferns are ancient. back then they didn't have much memory (it was expensive) so they were generated procedurally. hence the way they look
TFW you get back to some old code and it's not all garbage but you actually get some real work done. 😌
“This 1 Piece of Advice Could Make Or Break Your Career”
Fairly grounded post despite the super clickbaity title.
Writing well made descriptions to visually impaired people is a difficult task. Audiodescription and other kinds of accommodations require professional training and supervision for a reason. Thus, don't worry about making the most perfect caption to the images you post. Worry about conveying the message said images want to pass on as much as you possibly can. That will be good enough.
