It's even worse than it appears.
I did a refresh on the ArtShow collection yesterday, a few hundred more classic paintings. Free to download, or use via web.#
  • When you view a normal XML file in the browser, Chrome gives you a simple, readable XML viewer. #
  • I want to be able to invoke that viewer from a JavaScript app running in the browser. #
  • Some kind of JavaScript call like#
    • window.xmlViewer (xmltext);#
  • The only other option is to rewrite it from scratch, which I'm open to doing but would rather not. Does anyone know if such a thing exists?#
  • BTW, one of the things that kind of silently limits the size of RSS is the way browsers display RSS feeds. They can handle other XML types in a normal sensible way. But the RSS viewer is broken. I wish they would just let it be, and show it as a normal XML file. #
  • A thread to discuss.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
