    I’m kind of overwhelmed with all these references… Thanks for posting though – the jQuery 1.4 stuff could be especially helpful.

    Hi,

    I found your blog on Topsy. Its great, although and good web developer or designer should know most of these, although there were a few that caught me out. Great as a reference in the future.

    Many thanks for sharing these helpful chear sheets. Here are a few samples of mine http://www.spanglishwebs.com/
