MLP: web this and that.

Meagan Fisher: "a website’s design should begin where it’s going to live: in the browser."

Playing with Web Storage. Try Pedro Ladaria's text editor demo, and see the HTML5 compatibility table to see where it works.

And the "apt-get install" of the week: sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf. That's a simple shell utility to convert html to pdf using the webkit rendering engine, and qt. Fully scriptable and make-friendly, and you can feed it a user stylesheet to tweak the format for print without changing the original HTML. Just what I needed.
