YUI Custom Events Problem

P: n/a
I have been trying to implement Dustin Diaz's YUI Custom Events code on
my website. You can see his demo here:
http://www.dustindiaz.com/basement/custom-events.html. My demo website
can be found here: http://www.timothyrosenberg.com/test1.html. If I
put a javascript (like those that you get from flickr, feedigest, etc.)
in the list that is controled by the YUI the list does not expand
correctly and all of the <liunder it are forced open and do not
function at all. Can anyone diagnose the problem and maybe offer a
solution? I'd greatly appreciate some help. Thank you!

Answer:It destroys the order of the conversation
Question: Why?
Answer: Top-Posting.
Question: Whats the most annoying thing on Usenet?
I have asked Dustin, but becasue he's busy or whatever I have not
recieved a reply.
And do you think Dustin would be in a better position to tech support
his library than people who have never used it before?
I am continuing to try to contact him, however I am
seeking other help becasue I'd like to launch this
thing soon. Let me know if you can help me. Thanks a lot!
Then either write your own code, find a library that is better
supported, or forget that aspect of it for now.

Q: What's the most annoying thing on usenet?
A: People who reaply to posts just to complain about the poster's lack
of knowledge or inability to "write his/her own code."

The Yahoo UI (YUI) library is widely supported which is why I came her
to ask for help. If you are going to help me then I'll accept your
reply. If you are not going to be helpful then don't bother replying.

Dustin did not write the library. He wrote the tutorial and the
example that I liked to in the initial post. I was hoping that someone
familir with the YUI library would be browsing this group and be able
to troubleshoot it.

If I could write my own code I'd have done it already and not be asking
for help here.

Many apologies for the top posting... what was I thinking?!?

Q: What's the most annoying thing on usenet?
A: People who reaply to posts just to complain about the poster's lack
of knowledge or inability to "write his/her own code."

The Yahoo UI (YUI) library is widely supported
Do you mean by web browsers? As the library has flaws that will cause
issues with browsers as common as IE 6 that is a questionable
assertion.
which is why I came her to ask for help.
That doesn't follow. Asking a question about the Yahoo libraries in a
javascript news group may be justified by the assumption that people
who write javascript use the Yahoo libraries. That would not be a valid
assumption, by the evidence and in theory, as libraries mostly act to
service people who don't know javascript or browser scripting (well or
at all). Which is an obvious problem when those libraries don't turn
out to be effective enough to do any given task faultlessly and are not
sufficiently well document to allow these people who don't really know
what they are doing to diagnose and correct those faults.
If you are going to help me then I'll accept your reply.
Would you know how to recognise help? If you insist that what you
receive is only 'help' if it satisfies your personal (and short term)
demands you will end up disregarding much good advice.

... . I was hoping that someone familir with the YUI library
would be browsing this group and be able to troubleshoot it.
"Familiar with" and "browsing this group" may coincide, but possibly
not together with "able to troubleshoot it". While "able to
troubleshoot it" and "browsing this group" are likely to coincide but
without "Familiar with", and that introduces the issue of "willing to
troubleshoot it". Given 150K of unfamiliar javascript source code and
no real indication of how to re-produce the manifestation of your issue
(or even a clear statement of what the issue actually is) you are
asking someone to go to considerable effort to help you. That might
happen but it is less likely than asking for help with a cut-down test
case page that demonstrates the issue in isolation (isolation from any
irrelevant mark-up and any not directly involved/employed script.
If I could write my own code I'd have done it already and not
be asking for help here.
And if I could not write better code for myself I might be (more than
superficially) familiar with the Yahoo libraries. There is a Catch 22
in there somewhere.
Many apologies for the top posting... what was I thinking?!?
Hard to say, but while you are not top-posting you can also start to
trim the material you quote to just that which is required to maintain
the context of your responses to it, and interleave those responses
with the pertinent quoted material to produce an optimally formatted
Usenet post.
