Adobe Demos Flash-to-HTML5 Conversion Tool

Adobe already offers HTML5 plugins for Illustrator CS5 and Dreamweaver CS5. Adobe also offers an Illustrator CS5 export tool for HTML5 and JavaScript. What makes this Flash tool different is that it not only supports animations, but elements within those animations. Watch the demonstration video to get an idea of how users will be able to take elements from within the newly converted HTML5 code to re-insert elsewhere on a web page.

Use Adobe Fonts in Your Own Web Designs

Adobe fontsClipped from Mashable :

Typekit, a company doing its part to help bring better typography to the web, has just announced an new partnership with Adobe.

The partnership means that Typekit users can now integrate famous fonts like Myriad, Cooper Black and Adobe Garamond into their own sites and designs.

Adobe took the time to optimize and hint its collection of fonts for the screen, ensuring that type looks its best. The web fonts support the same languages and scripts as their counterparts on the desktop.


WOFF as a Standard

Clipped from Mashable :

The Web Open Font Format , or WOFF, is edging ever closer to becoming the de facto standardized format for using fonts on the web.

Backed by Mozilla, Opera and Microsoft, WOFF allows TrueType, OpenType or Open Font Format fonts to be embedded into web pages.

Right now, WOFF support is built into Firefox 3.6 and above, Google Chrome version 5 and above, Internet Explorer 9, and will be supported in upcoming versions of Safari.

WPMU: Setting up Permalinks

WPMU, by default, has a really ugly linking system for example look like this: http://www.ag.auburn.edu/fish/?p=463.

Now within WPMU Administration you can customize these links, which are created on the fly, fairly easily.

The obvious choice or solution would be to change said strucutre to this: %/postname%. This is a bad idea.
Reasoning is this, WPMU first checks the URL to see if it is a page before looking to see if it is a post. Therefore in my opinion the most efficient structure would be: %post_id%/%postname%

Remember you have to be an admin to perform this action. I strongly suggest this being done right after installation as changing the linking structure on an already successful blog could have catastrophic effects.
