I have lots of pages using foreign words, transliterated into their latin equivalent, using a vareity of diacritics. Some example of such characters: ā, ṛ, ṭ and ḥ. As for words: Vṛkṣa can be transliterated as both Vriksha and Vrksa.
One page could contain hundreds of such words having diacritics, while the main language of the text remains English. I want to either index all synonyms, or index the variety that has the most SERP potential.
From a SEO perspective, how should I present the pages for indexing? For example:
a) I could add the same content twice, one with the diacritics applied to the words, and one plain text content, without diacritics (so ā becomes a etc, ṛ becomes ri, etc.); where the first content part is visible and the latter invisible. Will this present the danger of duplicate content penalty?
b) I could show the content in their plain text representation, using no diacritics, assuming this has the most SERP potential. I could offer the user some button by which they can dynamically switch the transliteration of those words using diacritics on the page.
Also, when choosing (b), is there some preferred HTML tag or attribute to indicate the synonymous word? For example Vrikshna
As stated in this answer, an elliptical speech bubble is more commonly seen than a rounded (rectangular) speech bubble. This is perhaps true of comics, but not in messaging/chat services; it makes sense that you wouldn’t want a round speech bubble for long lines of text.
On the other hand, ellipses are more popular for the actual icons, as seen with Messenger, Hangouts, iMessage, and WeChat, among others:
Then there’s stuff like this one:
These rounded-but-not-elliptical-speech-bubble icons seem much rarer (along with other non-elliptical icons), even though all of these above services use rectangular speech bubbles, and many interfaces use rounded icon masks instead of elliptical ones.
We seem to have a lot of thoughts about sharp or round edges but are there any studies about usability between fully rounded speech bubbles vs. partially rounded speech bubbles in terms of icons for messaging? Are there perhaps implicit usage associations, or is it simply that elliptical speech bubbles seem more “friendly” shape-wise?
For bonus points, are there any studies about whether there should be one, two, or more speech bubbles in the icon, and whether they should be blank or not? Should the tail be straight or curved, the tip pointed or rounded? Why not point to the right? There don’t appear to be many sources on the iconography concerning messaging.
My mother in law visits the US every 6 months from India. She is 62 years old and does not have any pre-existing medical condition. Which travel insurance is recommended. We live in the bay area, California. Thanks.
NancyFX has Content Negotiation feature that I can write additional serialization adapter for S-expression by implementing IResponseProcessor interface.
And there is a problem… S-expression’s MIME type seems to be
text/plain. So the web server cannot decide actual
text file type in
Is there well known practice for deciding MIME type of text file? For example,
text/plain+s: adding its file extension
text/plain+s-expression: adding language name
I have 2 login forms in the same page: login with username&password, login with emailaddress&password.
I separated forms with tabs but 1 of the login forms is always selected as default behavior of a tab.
The one with the username&password is the default selected form.
However people type their email address to the form that I ask for username&password and I got a lot of faield login attempts.
I thought I could have an accordion menu that are collapsed as default or with navigation pills. Another option would be having 2 buttons and when clicked the login form open for each of them.
Imagine having access to a workstation with local admin permissions.
Let’s say that no domain user is going to login – no keylogging. Also, the workstation had a restart – mimikatz return only computer account cred.
What is your preferred path of overtaking the domain admin account?
I find myself defining a
2 * Math.PI constant frequently. Is there a preferred name for this constant? (I know there was a movement to replace Pi with Tau but I’m not sure that it would so much clarify as make some sort of statement; the goal here is code clarity.)
The people I work with have the tendency to set the access mode in numerical notation to
777 every time they face access right problems.
The mess is caused by using many users.
- The creator of files (user: john),
- The php interpreter (user: www-data),
I’m wondering if there exists a preferred / best / safest access mode setting for directories containing php scripts and the php script itself.
I don’t use mail normally. So today when I open my app, this caught me by surprise
I selected one of the server and then close the mail window, but there are just so many to go through.
1) The email are seemingly created based on some of my calendar events. Why they tried to send me emails?
2) How can I efficiently close all these windows in one go, instead of making a selection of outgoing server than close a mail window?
I have tried to quit the mail app from its context menu of the Dock, but it just forces one of the mail window to the foreground.
