I bought one of these beautiful Aeon World Travel Journals for a close friend for her birthday. She and her partner are off on a traveling adventure this year, and this journal was the perfect gift.

Nice leather, not too heavy. Cream-white acid free pages of a nice stock for writing – not sure what paper weight. Includes 80 pages worth of full colour maps for places all over the world. Chose this one over the Moleskine travel journals as it’s worldwide rather than city specific.

You can buy them online here. I bought one from Passion for Paper in Parnell, would love one when I’m ready to fly away 🙂

Grid maker takes all this information and a little more and spits out a suitable grid. You can download your grid in PNG, but it’s also demonstrated in your browser window.

Uni-Form is an attempt to standardize form markup (xhtml) and css, “modularize” it, so even people with only basic knowledge of these technologies can get nice looking, well structured, highly…

I loathe creating forms in HTML – they are my biggest peeve because there’s so much to remember in order to get it right.

Anything that helps me to ensure that my forms are useable and semantically correct get a big “Awesome” from me.
