http://www.echo.msk.ru/blog/mitina_daria/668943-echo/

Ах, какая была держава!
Ах, какие в ней люди были!
Как торжественно-величаво
Звуки гимна над миром плыли!
Ах, как были открыты лица,
Как наполнены светом взгляды!
Как красива была столица!
Как величественны парады!
Проходя триумфальным маршем,
Безупречно красивым строем,
Молодежь присягала старшим,
Закаленным в боях героям -
Не деляги и прохиндеи
Попадали у нас в кумиры...
Ибо в людях жила - идея!
Жажда быть в авангарде мира!
Что же было такого злого
В том, что мы понимали твердо,
Что "товарищ" - не просто слово,
И звучит это слово гордо?
В том, что были одним народом,
Крепко спаянным общей верой,
Что достоинства - не доходом,
А иной измеряли мерой?
В том, что пошлости на потребу
Не топили в грязи искусство?
Что мальчишек манило небо?
Что у девушек были чувства?

Ах, насколько все нынче гаже,
Хуже, ниже и даже реже:
Пусть мелодия гимна - та же,
Но порыв и идея - где же?
И всего нестерпимей горе
В невозможности примирений
Не с утратою территорий,
Но с потерею поколений!
Как ни пыжатся эти рожи,
Разве место при них надежде?
Ах, как все это непохоже
На страну, что мы знали прежде!
Что была молода, крылата,
Силы множила год за годом,
Где народ уважал солдата
И гордился солдат народом.
Ту, где светлыми были дали,
Ту, где были чисты просторы...
А какое кино снимали
Наши лучшие режиссеры!
А какие звенели песни!
Как от них расправлялись плечи!
Как под них мы шагали вместе
Ранним утром заре навстречу!
Эти песни - о главном в жизни:
О свободе, мечте, полете,
О любви к дорогой отчизне,
О труде, что всегда в почете,
И о девушках, что цветами
Расцветают под солнцем мая,
И о ждущей нас дома маме,
И о с детства знакомом крае,
И о чести, и об отваге,
И о верном, надежном друге...
И алели над нами флаги
С черной свастикой в белом круге.

Юрий Нестеренко

Narrative vs. Actionable Content
Print publications — from newspaper articles to marketing brochures — contain linear content that's often consumed in a more relaxed setting and manner than the solution-hunting behavior that characterizes most high-value Web use.

In print, you can spice up linear narrative with anecdotes and individual examples that support a storytelling approach to exposition. On the Web, such content often feels like filler; it slows down users and stands in the way of their getting to the point.

For example, in print, discussing the tall-friendly rooms in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas feels somewhat interesting. That's not the case online when a user is looking for tall-friendly rooms in Chicago (or wherever he or she is going next week).

Web content must be brief and get to the point quickly, because users are likely to be on a specific mission. In many cases, they've pulled up the page through search. Web users want actionable content; they don't want to fritter away their time on (otherwise enjoyable) stories that are tangential to their current goals.

Instead of a predefined narrative, websites must support the user's personal story by condensing and combining vast stores of information into something that specifically meets the user's immediate needs. Thus, instead of an author-driven narrative, Web content becomes a user-driven narrative.

Print's narrative exposition calls for well-crafted, complete sentences. Online, less so. Fragments often let you pull information-carrying keywords to the front, while also reducing froufrou word count. Because Web users read only 18% of added verbiage, cutting words is well worth the accusing squiggles that MS Word will throw at your sentence fragments.

Link
CSS Tip:

You Are Here!

by Larisa Thomason,
Senior Web Analyst,
NetMechanic, Inc.

Readable text and understandable navigation are the two most important components of site usability. One easy way to make your navigation menu more user-friendly is to disable the current page in the menu. We'll show you how to accomplish this using basic HTML and CSS: no JavaScript or PHP coding required!

Control Display By Styling Link States

Very young human infants seem to have three states of being: sleeping, eating, and crying. Hyperlinks in your navigation system have four states of being � and luckily are quieter and easier to manage:

 

  • Visited: indicates a page the visitor has already seen and who's URL is in the browser's history file.
  • Focus: the link is selected by tabbing with the keyboard instead of with a mouse. Hitting the ENTER key activates the link.
  • Hover: the link is selected by moving the mouse over the link. Double-clicking the mouse (usually) activates the link.
  • Active: the page that's currently open in the browser window.

 

These four states are actually something called pseudo-classes in CSS. You can use them to style your navigation menu based on the link state. Notice something missing in this? There's nothing to indicate which page is currently active, meaning the page currently open in the visitor's browser.

It's not at all uncommon for a user to click a link and have it reload the current page. That's not bad, but it can be a bit aggravating to some users. Fortunately, it's simple to use an additional HTML attribute to highlight the current page � without using any complex coding.

Styling Using A CSS Menu

In a previous Webmaster Tip, Create Stylish Menus, we described how to create a colorful, text-based navigation menu that looks and acts like one creating using images and JavaScript rollovers.

Please refer to that article for a complete description of the technique. For this article, we're going to use the same basic method, but add a twist with the ID element.

Here are the CSS rules for the basic menu:

<style type="text/css">

a:link
{
text-decoration:none;
color:FFFFFF;
background:navy;
font-weight : bold;
width: 100%;
display:block;
}

a:active
{
color:FFFFFF;
font-weight:bold;
background: red;
display:block;
}

a:visited
{
text-decoration:none;
font-weight:bold;
color:FFFFFF;
background:navy;
display:block;
}

a:hover
{
color:FFFFFF;
background: red;
display:block;
}

.navigationBorder
{
background:navy;
border-style:solid;
border-color: red;
border-width:5px;
width:200px;
text-decoration:center;
}

</style>

That creates a menu like the one on this example page. Note the rollover effect you get when you move your mouse over the links or tab through them

The link for the current page looks and acts the same as the links for the other pages. Now, this link is helpfully titled "Current Page" but most Web sites aren't that clear about which is the active link and which links take you to different pages!

Use ID To Highlight The Current Page

Now, it's easy to find some free JavaScript, PHP, ASP, etc. code snippets that modify the look of the current page in a navigation menu. But it's not always that easy to modify the code to meet your requirements and it's almost impossible to debug the result if you didn't write the code in the first place!

So let's do it the easy way - with CSS and HTML.

We're going to use the ID attribute to link individual pages in the menu to the menu system itself. This is a three-step process:

 

  1. Add an ID attribute to each link in your menu system, like this:

    <div class="navigationBorder">
    <a href="YouAreHere_Example1.htm" id="menu-current">Current Page</a>
    <a href="" id="menu-home">NetMechanic Home Page</a>
    <a href="" id="menu-newsletter">Newsletter Archive</a>
    <a href="" id="menu-powerPack">Search Engine Power Pack</a>
    <a href="" id="menu-toolbox">HTML Toolbox</a>
    <a href="" id="menu-browserPhoto">Browser Photo</a>
    </div>


    Note the ID attribute added to each link.

  2. Add an ID attribute to the BODY tag of each page referred to in the navigation menu. So we take the example page and modify the BODY tag like this:

    <body id="current">

    If we were adding this to the NetMechanic site, we might change the BODY tags of the individual pages like this:

    <body id="newsletter">
    <body id="powerPack">
    <body id="toolbox">
    <body id="browserPhoto">


    See how the IDs match? We used the same basic ID name, but added a short identifier (menu) to differentiate them in the CSS rules.

  3. Add a CSS rule that styles whichever page is the current one AND ties together the ID attributes for the page and the link. Yes, this sounds awfully complicated, but see how easy it really is! Here's the new style rule. Just add it before the closing STYLE tag:

    body#current a#menu-current,
    body#home a#menu-home,
    body#newsletter a#menu-newsletter,
    body#powerPack a#menu-powerPack,
    body#toolbox a#menu-toolbox,
    body#browserPhoto a#menu-browserPhoto

    {color:navy;
    background:white;
    display:block;}


    Here, we're tying the ID in each page's BODY section to the menu link for that page. If they match, the browser applies the style rules specified here instead of the style rules we set up for the basic menu system.

 

See how it looks here in this second example page. Look at the page's source code to see all the code working together.

Good For Usability And Accessibility

Like most accessibility techniques, this increases the usability level of the menu for all users. As Web usability expert Jakob Neilsen notes in his book, Designing Web Usability, Internet newcomers don't have nearly the expertise of early adopters:


"People vary in their spatial reasoning skills and in their short-term memory capacity. Programmers and graphic designers tend to get uncommonly high scores on tests of spatial reasoning skills and are therefore good at visualizing the structure of website. Similarly, young people (including most Web designers) certainly have better memories for obscure codes, such as URLs, than older people. It is safe to assume that most users will have significantly greater difficulty navigating a website than its designer have."
