I’m enjoying mucking about with Asp.Net. For someone who’s done a fair bit of “Classic” ASP like myself, it’s a great step forward.
But maybe I’m way off the mark here, how on earth could they implement something as useful as a DataGrid HyperLink column or a <asp:hyperlink> tag and not include an easy way of setting the title attribute in the link? Nor does the syntax checker seem to recognise the <span> tag. Did the W3C go and depreciate these while I wasn’t looking? Don’t believe so…
(The solution for the DataGrid is to use an <ItemTemplate> and code it yourself.
Ditto the Hyperlink tag. For the <span> tag, well, what care I if the syntax checker puts a squiggly line underneath it and it shouts a warning during compilation. Ah, seems to allow <span> and other such niceties, you have to tell it your targetting IE5 (or later), rather than IE3/NS3. Makes sense.)
