Minimal visual aids

You are quite correct - I have not been around an awful lot recently. When one has little to say, one says little. As partial recompense I offer a few little graphical pieces meant to make the use of SLurls a little more obvious. Which more clearly displays that one might visit a location - Caledon Cay or Caledon Cay? Well, sir or madam or other, I believe it to be the latter, and should you agree with me, the easiest solution to enable the use of such a display is to add the following to the Style Sheet for one's page:

a.slurl {
    background:
        url('http://ordinalmalaprop.com/images/slurl-12x16.gif')
        center left no-repeat #fff;
    padding-left: 14px;
    font-weight: bold;
}

and then simply add class="slurl" within one's links, thusly:

<a href="blah" class="slurl">blah x,y,z</a>

Of course, some readers may be unable to access their Style Sheets, in which case there is always the lengthy and inconvenient option that does however produce the same result:

<a href="blah" style="background: url('/images/slurl-12x16.gif') center left no-repeat #fff; padding-left: 14px; font-weight: bold;">blah x,y,z</a>

as well as the slightly-different-but-easier-to-remember option of using a simple image:

<a href="blah" style="font-weight: bold;"><img src="http://ordinalmalaprop.com/images/slurl-12x16.gif" alt="" /> blah</a>

blah

Lastly, here is a small button-type thing which one might use instead of both hand and text:

<a href="http://slurl.com/secondlife/Caledon%20Cay/128/128/32/"><img src="/images/slurl-44x15.png" alt="slurl" /></a>

Well done, Miss Malaprop. May I also suggest this as well?

.slurl:before
{
margin-right: 3px;
content: url(http://ordinalmalaprop.com/images/slurl-12x16.gif)
}

But of course I've now just realized that will not work in Microsoft's Aether Net Browsers. Pity.

Yours truly,
Miss Ada Oddfellow

Strangely, dear Ordinal, (and I say this simply by way of providing information), the second of your two examples does not display as, (and please forgive my presumption at this juncture), you intended when one views the journal through the Safari browser provided by Apple on their Mac devices.

Indeed it closely resembles the first example you offer in all respects.

Examining your Aethernet journal by means of the pyro-vulpinically named FireFox browser on the Apple device seems to display the visitable indicators correctly (insofar as they are distinct in their appearance, each from the other).

the 'the slightly-different-but-easier-to-remember option of using a simple image' works in both viewing tools.

Salutations, &c &c,

Churchill.

Well, I must say that that is rather peculiar - I have been viewing these entries in Safari and the above appears to be very much as I intended. Hm. A puzzle. Either way I suppose it is visible and that is the most important part.

Hi.
Good design, who make it?
