I'm new to the list and I've just released my first large open-source
project. I posted it on the wiki but some friends thought it would
help if I talk to some of you about moving it forward.
I've created an HTML/CSS renderer, much like DENG but a little
different angle. I want to be able to make cool looking flash sites
with HTML and CSS. To do that I've mapped all the great flash things
(filters, blendModes, transformations, etc.) to CSS properties along
with custom shapes, dynamic font loading and much more.
In its current state most of the major HTML tags can be parsed and
pages are displaying beautifully with percentage based layouts and
real browser resizing based on the contents size. There is simple
documentation on the google code page and a few examples made
including a wordpress theme that I highly recommend all of you flash
gurus to upgrade your blogs to actually use flash.
You can view all the stuff from here code.google.com/p/htmlwrapper/
I'm off to a pretty good start but I need some help with some regEx
things to clean the HTML and it would be great to get a few others on
the project creating new things. I still need some work on components
for form submission but I would like everything to be drawn
dynamically and styled with CSS and still keeping the size down. The
project is only 22K.
Any ideas are welcome and any help that you guys want to give would
be great. Thanks, - Tyler Larson
