Most awaited movie of the year

For me it is going to be “The Dark Knight”, the promos looks great and Heath Ledger as “Joker” rocks. Sir Michael Cain claimed that Heath Ledger’s Joker topped that of “Jack Nicholson’s” Joker in the Tim Burtons “Batman”. The director Christopher Nolan has been my favorite after he made Memento. Remember Memento, Aamir Khan […]

Divs, Lists or Tables for semantic forms in HTML

Well that’s a million dollar question. This has been debated on the net for quite sometime and I don’t think everyone has reached to a conclusion to settle on just one of them. A lot of people including me, used to use Divs. e.g. <div class=”fieldrow”> <label for=”firstName”>First Name</label> <input type=”text” name=”firstName” id=”firstName” /></div> I […]
