Jigsaw Fun

Sunday 13th March, 2016


How’s this for fun?

Fit the pieces of the jigsaw together to make 9 questions. If you want to see the picture, click on the icon at the bottom on the left. I need to, because jigsaws are difficult and my English isn’t as good as you might think – I use Doggle Translate for these posts!

Cool Code for Definitions

Saturday 12th March, 2016


I wanted to highlight text to show it as clickable so used this CSS snippet:


And the html ’em’ attribute

<em>Woof!</em> to get:


Next, I wanted to create a definition when hovering over the text, which requires a simple html ‘span’:


so now we have:

Woof! Hover over ‘Woof’ if you have a mouse.

But what about touch devices with no hover capability? For this we need an ‘onClick’ event handler, so we get the same message when clicking on the word. Luckily, there are some Javascript snippets which work in html and don’t need separate scripting.


which gives us:
Woof! Click on ‘Woof!’ to see message in dialog box.
