As I am a new member here at frihost, I would like to post my opinons about this hosting site.
The Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is now off. But nothing is lost with Manny, rather, Mayweather lost millions. Mayweather is already done, an afterthought and he only has a perfect record because he fought only with mediocre fighters with the exception of DelaHoya who was only beaten because Mayweather is such a wuss. Floyd won't even fight Moseley even though Moseley went to the ring after one of Mayweather's fight to challenge the latter.
And now, there has been news that Mayweather, with all the accusations he has made to fellow boxers, is the one using enhancers in his hand. Mayweather was never the pound for pound king. Because I think to be called pound for pound, you have to beat the best of em', a feat Mayweather never, ever did.
I'm surely no laker fan, but I can't help but think and observe how very evident it is that no teams aside from Boston, Orlando and Denver can stand against the Los Angeles Lakers. As of now, Bryant is stil taking care of a minor injury, but the Lakers have won nine straight making Phoenix look like a 5-15 team. It truly is scary. Phil Jackson? He is, for me, the greatest and best coach of all time. Kobe Bryant? Surely not the greatest nor the best, but certainly belong in that category. The 2009-2010 Lakers? Can contend for the greatest team of all time I believe. But it's too early to say, though a second straight championship could very well prove that. By the way, Pau Gasol is arguably the second best low post player today.
It seems that the bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is already set either March or September. This would truly be the greatest boxing fight in recent memory. The winner of the fight would likely and arguably be the greatest boxer of all time, pound-for-pound.
My bet is with Pacquiao. He has proved to have everything. Speed, power, finesse, and stamina. He took punches from Miguel Cotto like they were nothing, interestingly, Cotto is arguably the strongest puncher outside of Manny Pacquiao. He has KO'd numerous legends in Barrera, Morales, DelaHoya, Hatton and Cotto. The only one left is Mayweather, who I think is a bit overrated. I believe Cotto or Moseley can even beat Mayweather. Mayweather cannot take a punch if you may, while he cannot run the whole fight with Pacquiao as his opponent for Pacquiao is not slowpoke.
This would truly be exciting to fight, and I believe this would also be the greatest boxing match of all time.
Hi people, do anyone of you know some good ASP.NET tutorial sites which are free? I kind of need it right now so any information would help. Currently I'm into C#.net programming but would also like to venture into ASP.NET programming. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
The existence of billions of websites in the World Wide Web has made internet surfing a daily routine for almost all people in the world. Some users do not care about the interface and content of the websites they visit as long as they found what they needed, but for concerning bodies such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), websites that have errors in their interface and content, should be fixed, and should be a big concern for the developer side. Through the recommendations of W3C for the XSLT Validator, the problems encountered can be altered and therefore, be validated.The existing XSLT Validator is concerned with XML, DSD, XML Schema and XSLT.
Extensible Mark-up Language (XML) is widely used in creating websites. Its primary purpose is to help information systems share structured data, particularly via the Internet, and it is used both to encode documents and to serialize data.
XML Schema is used to express a schema: a set of rules to which an XML document must conform in order to be considered 'valid' according to that schema that was also designed to the intention of determining a document's validity.
W3C then developed the Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) that is used for the transformation of XML documents into other XML or "human-readable" documents. The original document is not changed; rather, a new document is created based on the content of an existing one. [www.w3c.org]
Because of the disadvantages faced by developers using XML Schema such as it cannot require a specific root element, the character data cannot be constrained in any way. The group has decided to tap the power of a new schema that is more powerful than that of the XML schema, known as the DSD (Document Structure Description) schema.
Document Structure Description (DSD) is an XML Schema language co-developed by AT&T Labs - Research, NJ, and BRICS, University of Aarhus, Denmark. The goal of DSD is to provide schema syntax capable of strong data typing and context-dependent content models. The DSD site provides free source code, a meta-DSD that can be used to validate DSD schemas, and an XSLT stylesheet that can be used as a default stylesheet for instances of XML documents conforming to a DSD schema for outputting HTML. [www.briks.dk]. Today, there is already a new and improved version of DSD which is DSD 2.0. [www.xml.com]
DSD 2.0 is designed to contain few and simple language constructs, be easy to understand, also by non-XML-experts and have more expressive power than other schema languages for most practical purposes. It has many advantages over the XML schema, which is the standard schema at present, some of which are 1) DSD rules can be hierarchical by depending on attribute values and element context 2) DSD is 100% self-describing 3) Lots of non-essential features that can be seen in the XML schema are removed or reduced to more basic and general constructs. [Moller and Schwartzbach 2006]
Currently there is no validator for XSLT using the DSD 2.0 schema thus the power of the DSD 2.0 schema cannot be utilized. This study would focus on creating an XSLT validator that uses the DSD 2.0 schema. If the XSLT is invalid it would have output error messages and a valid confirmation if the XSLT is valid as the output. Since the XML file can be translated to different formats, there can be many possible outputs such as the XHTML and HTML file format.
Extensible Hypertext Markup Language, or XHTML, is a markup language that has the same depth of expression as HTML, but also conforms to XML syntax. [www.zimbio.com]
While HTML is an application of Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), a very flexible markup language, XHTML is an application of XML, a more restrictive subset of SGML. Because they need to be well-formed, true XHTML documents allow for automated processing to be performed using standard XML tools—unlike HTML, which requires a relatively complex, lenient, and generally custom parser. XHTML can be thought of as the intersection of HTML and XML in many respects, since it is a reformulation of HTML in XML. [www.indigodigital.com]
Applications on the Web are now moving in the direction of XML. Using XHTML now instead of HTML makes any future transition of any website easier. Once browsers offer support for XHTML documents and the strict rules of XML, they will become quicker thanks to shorter error processing routines. At present, a great deal of the processing power of a browser is still spent on liberal error processing of documents containing malformed HTML markup. This is the price of a quickly but chaotically expanding internet.
