I have only posted the chapters 4 and 5 of “Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen.”  I will post chapter 6 tomorrow and chapter 7 later.  I’m currently in the process of translating chapter 8 (I’ve been slowed by putting up the website — hahaha!).

Anyhow, I got to play around with some Javascript.  I used a modified version of the 3-state button code from the Negrino and Smith Javascript book and I did fierce battle with the tabbed panel script that comes with Dreamweaver.  I started playing around with a drop down menu for the chapter selection, but I decided that wasn’t necessary and went with links in the right side secondary menu column.  I felt it was better to get to the point, rather than have the user hunt around the UI looking for a way to read the chapter they want.  Yep … I had to remind myself to keep it simple.

Next is the tough part because I have to do specific page layout styles to fulfill the assignment requirements.  The current website uses a hybrid style.  I still have to make a page in which everything is liquid and one that is completely fixed.  My feeling is that form follows function so I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about matching functions for those forms.  I think for the liquid layout I will modify an existing page for mobile devices.  This makes sense to me because you don’t know how the different mobile browsers will render the page, so if it done as a liquid layout, the page will fill the width given.  As for the fixed, the only thing that comes to mind is a “print friendly” page.  So … whoo-hoo!  A “print friendly” might be a good opportunity to play with PHP … hmmm …

Anyhow, check it out.  I like the way it turned out :).
