I randomly made a new page for Molzapart and Rainteicune, with all-new author commentary (the old one had far too many emoticons and unnecessary comments for my current tastes) and a fancy feature to toggle the commentary on or off.

Also, I updated a few character bios that I'd meant to update before but for some reason didn't: I added some rambling about Stantler on the page for May's Pokémon and updated May's ramble with recent developments. (If you haven't seen the updated Letaligon ramble, that's on the page for Mark's Pokémon, too.)

Yesterday I did one of the stupidest, most pointless things ever, namely to go through the entirety of the fic and change how the various italics are marked up. Everything used to be em tags, which didn't make semantic sense - em tags are for emphasis. Now that the HTML5 specification gives i tags an official purpose of marking up things to be read in an "alternate voice or mood" and other conventionally italicized purposes, it is plain that they are actually definitively the Right Way to mark up things like thoughts and telepathic speech, with classes to assign them different purposes. So now, every single line of telepathic speech, every single line of thought, every single book title, etc. etc. etc. in every chapter of both active versions of the fic, extras and spinoffs should be marked up in an amazingly semantic manner that looks visually identical to before! Isn't this exciting?

Well, there is one discernible purpose to all this, which is that in theory, if I wanted to decide to style these different things differently, I could do that. So if I decided to stop italicizing thoughts, that would be a couple lines of CSS, without affecting other italics. And I ended up giving the "read" class (for signs, etc. that the main characters read) a serif font. But the rest is just plain italics exactly as it was before.

This has been me telling you nothing has changed. Except that serif font.


Chapter 64… is not getting worked on much at the moment. I've been randomly in a website mood recently, hence all the updating TCoD and now with the BOOYAH SEMANTIC MARKUP FOR MY FANFICTION thing, and when I'm not doing that I tend to be working on those Serebii contest reviews. I've been thinking about it quite a bit, though, in terms of what purpose it needs to serve for the story and how to go about achieving it, so all this time hasn't been entirely unproductive - I was dissatisfied with how the chapter progressed but I've mostly figured out what blanks I need to fill in.

This is not really a proper post. I'm still working on chapter 64, but it's pretty much in the same place as last time. I'm just trying to see if the last updated date on TCoD will update correctly when I post this - it wasn't before but I think I fixed the issue now. Sorry if you were hoping for something more substantial.
