Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

Comment placer du HTML par dessus une Applet :

Some objects, like applets, select-boxes and iframe’s are not actually drawn by your browser but by the operating system. These objects are always on top of the HTML elements rendered by your browser. You cannot put them below HTML elements with a lower z-index. The key to the solution is that both applets and iframe’s are managed by the operating system. You can layer these with respect to each other with the z-index. You can create an iframe with the exact same position and dimension as the div (or any other element) you want to float on top of the applet. You can have the iframe sit on top of the applet with a higher z-index. The HTML (e.g. div element) can float on top of the iframe with an even higher z-index.
