Meeting minutes for WDN Meeting October 11th 2005.

CIT Demo of Content Management System using UNL Templates.
The CMS is built with JSP, Apache, Lenya.
A demo site is available at http://loup.unl.edu/
People interested in using the CMS can contact Melanie Eirich, 2-2884.

Updates to the CSS UNL Templates:
Added a <p> tag surrounding the skip navigation link.
Altered PHP include structure to use the 'virtual' function.
New Fixed Width Page (fixedwsidebars.dwt).

CSS Updates to the UNL Templates:
Added header styles h1, h2, h3 etc.
Peek-a-boo bug in IE 6 Win.
Fix added for Opera toolbar rendering issue.

sIFR Presentation:
Possible solution to our 'grotesque font problem.'
Replaces text on a page with a flash element containing the font of your choice.
Sample pages using sIFR: http://pear.unl.edu/ http://ucommdev.unl.edu/cssunltemplates/h1.shtml
Ideally the required CSS, .swf, and javascript will be added to the templates so only editing the text will be required. This is in BETA now.

Useful snippets page:

UNL PEAR Channel:
http://pear.unl.edu/ for reusable php code.
