Human-readable chicken scratch

In brief

I couldn’t just stop with all the links I gave you on Friday, so here’s some more computing stuff that I’m sure you’ll find interesting:

John Gruber pointed out some great techniques for implementing on webpages without annoying the reader. One of these sensible techniques stays put as you scroll the page, and the other is a no-fuss approach that comes closer to the glosses (marginal notes) that you’d find in a printed book.

Of course, you’d only find footnotes, endnotes, or sidenotes useful if you write like me, trying to cram every last possible detail into a piece of writing.
