Subject: Re: [wsrp][markup]

Carsten and all,

Here are my comments and questions to your responses.  The original document
that Carsten marked up is attached.

2. Fonts

I agree with your suggestion that we create a separate section for messages.
For error, status, warning, alert, and info.  I'll make the modifications to
the document.

I also think it makes sense to add two more font classes.
wsia-font-positive and wsia-font-negative.  This is especially useful in
financial related portlets.  Stock prices representing up tick and down
ticks is one example.

4. Sections

I would argue that wsia-section-background and wsia-section-text are not
needed.  wsia-section should be used to set the background styles and font
information.  I think this should be a general rule applied to all wsia
defined classes.  The base class (higher level class) should control
background and font style types of settings.  No?

5. Forms

Won't a single wsia-form-label suffice?  Do we need to provide four
different control label classes?  Do you have some use cases where these
would be appropriate?

6. Menus

- Can you describe wsia-menu-description and wsia-menu-caption in some more

- Can't background styles be set in the higher level class for menus?  For
example wsia-menu-item can set style attributes for background thus
defeating the need for a wsia-menu-item-background class?

7. Portal

I'm in favor of removing the portlet classes.  The section classes should be
able to replace portlet classes.

The idea of having a separate background dependent on mode is an interesting
concept.  Do we provide a wsia-section-mode-background class for each
possible mode?  What about proprietary modes that are undefined by
WSIA-WSRP?  Maybe defining edit and config background classes would suffice
for the first WSRP release.  Thoughts?

8.  It would be useful to supply a simple palette of sixteen (or less)
colors.  Example:


These colors will cover the cases that other classes can't handle.  One use
case is data represented in a tabular format using different color rows
dependent on the information being shown such as sales figures represented
by region, each region's figures in a different color.  This goes beyond a
simple alternating color scheme.

9. Other

Most of these questions in section 9 are still unanswered.  Anybody have any
input on these classes?  If not I'll remove them for this release.

Here are some more comments to proposed CSS styles.
Maybe we can discuss them in the next markup call.
