SGML Charset explorer..

P: n/a
I was recently loading an HTML editor
so I could find the charcode of that
particularly obscure character using the
editor's 'insert special character' dialog.

It occured to me there had to be a
better way. There are probably dozens,
but here is my solution..
http://www.physci.org/codes/charset.jsp

This page is my 'charset explorer', it displays
character codes in a table 456 at a time.

It also has links to a page giving larger
representations of each character. Vis.
http://www.physci.org/codes/char.jsp?char=65
http://www.physci.org/codes/char.jsp?char=84
http://www.physci.org/codes/char.jsp?char=1944

I hope it brings a..

http://www.eki.ee/letter/ is my reference of choice.

http://www.physci.org/codes/charset....8859-1&frame=1
Characters 127 to 159 in ISO-8859-1 (and all other ISO-8859 encodings)
are control characters. You seem to have some Windows-1252 characters
in there instead.

http://www.physci.org/codes/charset....8859-1&frame=2
There are only 256 characters in ISO-8859-1, so where did these come
from?

http://www.physci.org/codes/charset....8859-5&frame=1
Doesn't actually display any cyrillic characters. Mainly because
you've coded them as &#XXX; and numeric character references in HTML
always refer to unicode.

The site is a bit confusing. Only "frame=..." is important for the
displayed characters. One and the same document is then sent with
different charset parameters. That should have no effect - but
actually browsers will take a different typeface for each charset
parameter.

Blame all my own browsers! Every browser I have incorrectly displays,
for example, ™ as a trademark sign. That's NN4, NN6, NN7, IE5,
IE5.5, IE6, Op5, Op6, Op7, Moz 1.6, Firefox 0.8 and even Lynx.

Yeah, anyway. How do I save the applet with the periodic table? That's
my reason for loathing Flash and Java: when they are something
worthwhile it's always such a hassle to save.

Pack it all into 100+ nested tables, I say. Then use:

td table {
display: none

td:hover table {
display: table;
position: absolute;
z-index: 2;

- or something. Would be cool for one of those "this only works in

It does. But you didn't use any characters in your pages. You used
numeric character references, which in HTML are always references to
unicode.

Probably best. Users already have the ability to change the character
set used to display the page via their browsers. As your tables don't
use anything that's character set dependent there's really no point in
including them.

...errr. That table is 16x16, ..or were you talking

Yes, wasn't the FF a clue? ;-)

The point I was making is that character sets are zero based, so by
counting 1 to 256 rather than 0 to 255, and so on for your higher
frames, you're doing it differently to every other reference.

It's around 1 Meg, and includes 5
other programs (the page lies and
says 6 - but the browser was so
dodgy I removed it)

Over the next year I plan to break the
software suite up into individual
programs (on the basis that not many

a text editor and ..periodic table)
...That's

Java now offers Java Web-Start.
It offers a painless install for the user
(except for the 'you might die' security
warning that comes up when installing).

On the upside, program updates are
automatic, on the downside, even
Java developers have trouble finding
where the .jar files are actually installed.

Bugger that! I' gonna do my own pure CSS periodic table that ony works

Could you tell me what all those numbers mean and what the proper
layout for each element's data should be?

You can find the Java version checker here.

have the Java necessary for the applet

perplexing as you have apparently seen
the applet before.

interested, rather than having a laugh. ;-)

It _should not_ but it does in Netscape 4.80 and earlier versions.

The charset also affects the displayed _glyphs_ since browsers
usually take different typefaces for different charset parameters.

This is definitely wrong. Sadly, the terms that were defined in the
MIME spec have become very confusing in relation to current
terminology. The "encoding" refers to possible techniques of encoding
the content, such as gzip for a means of compression. It has nothing
to do with the choice of a "character encoding".

The "character encoding" (as it's now known) is what the MIME
specification called "charset". Shame, but we just have to live with
that.

But let's get back to your server-side process. Most of them (CGI,
PHP, blah blah) have their own ways to influence the HTTP headers.

A quick Google for the terms jsp charset content-type

produces:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/...3Nov/0071.html

Is that of any relevance?

(slaps forehead) Sure does.

I have hust set the content type using
the relevent jsp directive and all is sweet.

However. Since the statements indicated
to me that arbitrary file extensions could
get a mime type, I experimented with
documents that were _not_ .jsp*.

I came up with this.

No font. No JavaScript. No rubbish. Enjoy.


So what does this bit do?

<a href="javascript:element('Cobalt')">Cobalt</a>

Element 110 has a name now, too. "DamnStadium" or something, named to
honour the Sydney Olympic games, no doubt.

Not today. Java all crappy today.


Are you extracting the urine, Karl?

I would have hoped for something more
informative from a person as familiar with
both usenet and web design as yourself!


Posting quickly. Had the horrible feeling the Blue Screen of Death was
coming. When I tried your download page it wouldn't work for me with
Opera, so I opened the page in MSIE. Then everything turned weird -
Opera and MSIE both trying to use Java simultaneously is apparently a
no-no. Had to reboot computer.

...some available HTML periodic tables...


Thanks, no. I have two.
(both being further developed)


You could further develop by changing the symbol on element 110 from
"Uun" to "Ds" :-)

Oh, and I think I trimmed some of your
questions down there, but I am waiting
to be convinced that you are really
interested, rather than having a laugh. ;-)


Yeah, I'll start another thread with a more appropriate subject line,
perhaps. People might have the misapprehension there are comments on
your entity explorer here.
