Cufón aims to become a worthy alternative to sIFR, which despite its merits still remains painfully tricky to set up and use. To achieve this ambitious goal the following requirements were set:
1. No plug-ins required – it can only use features natively supported by the client
2. Compatibility – it has to work on every major browser on the market
3. Ease of use – no or near-zero configuration needed for standard use cases
4. Speed – it has to be fast, even for sufficiently large amounts of text
And now, after nearly a year of planning and research we believe that these requirements have been met.
Dive Into Python 3 will cover Python 3 and its differences from Python 2. Compared to the original Dive Into Python, it will be about 50% revised and 50% new material. I will publish drafts online as I go. The final version will be published on paper by Apress. The book will remain online under the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license.
YQL contains an extensive list of built-in tables for you to use that cover a wide range of Yahoo! Web services and access to off-network data. Open Data Tables in YQL allow you to create and use your own table definitions, enabling YQL to bind to any data source through the SQL-like syntax and fetch data. Once created anyone can use these definitions in YQL.
