    I've just released my latest development article over at the blog. This time, I talk about how to provide information to the user, as well as how to obtain information from the user.

    Head over there and read it if you are into that stuff.

    I just spent about one frustrating hour in that right state. (Not XP related). Fortunately I was able to figure thing out before I stopped for the night.

    I am typically somewhere in between, but I have spent time in the right hand one.

    I am only ever on the Left-Hand Path.

    I usually feel like I'm on the left hand, but suddenly I realise I was fooling myself and I was actually on the right hand one all along! LOL!

    While I didn't understand much of he code (I just started CC3+, and I am far from creating macros yet), I have one key request: Please use a "programming compatible" font for your code examples. It is probably a web site configuration issue, but please chose a font that clearly differentiates between the Letter 'O' and the Number '0'. Nothing is more annoying than trying to learn something new, and running into strange errors because one has typed an 'O' where a '0' would belong and vice versa.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'll see what I can do about it, but my options are a bit limited. I need to specify a font that most people will actually have installed, and I do have trouble finding a font that fits that criteria, but still is "programmer friendly".
    Google do have some in their fonts project, but embedding those require access to the document head, something I don't have access to from a blog post.

    Obviously, embedding the code as images is not a good idea either, as that kills copy&paste.

    Do note however that the examples currently uses the default monospace font, which you can change to a different font of your own choosing in the browser options. Obviously this has the downside of affecting all sites using the default monospace font.

    You can also download the examples linked from the bottom of the post and view this in a text editor/ide of your choice, although this obviously have the disadvantage of getting all the code, and not just the things I focus on in the text.
