Talk:Problem Solving

From WHATWG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
  • I just added a new page based on this template -- Link Hashes -- and I begin to wonder if the template should not be a lot more flexible regarding how the information is organised. There is just too much repetition of the same thing between different solutions, but if you compare to another problem -- like Image Caption -- repetitions are not on the same items. Maybe we should try to better organise these two problem pages and then update the template with what we've determined to be a good and flexible enough organisation. --Michel Fortin 09:52, 17 November 2006 (PST)

Problem Description

Current Limitations

  • I think "Current Limitations" and "Problem Description" will generally be the same thing. Almost always, the problem is a current limitation. Sure we could formulate problems in more general term, like "Problem: need to markup a dialogue; Limitation: no semantic markup for that", but in fact, marking up the dialog isn't really a problem (it's easy to markup a dialog with <dl>), the limitation is. --Michel Fortin 07:17, 17 November 2006 (PST)
    • I changed Problem Description to Use Case Description to clarify why I think they're different. The use case is about describing what kind of information you are trying to mark up. The current limitations is for explaining why existing markup is not appropriate. --Lachlan Hunt 09:37, 17 November 2006 (PST)
