    The Road Not Taken

    Robert Frost
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both (\_/)
    And be one traveler, long I stood (='.'=)
    And looked down one as far as I could (")_(")
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim, |\_/|
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear; / @ @ \
    Though as for that the passing there ( > º < )
    Had worn them really about the same, `>>x<<´
    / O \
    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.



    and here's a line of some really, really, really, really long text, just to see how it is handled and to find out how it overflows;

    The pull quote

    Keyboard navigation

    There are many different ways to use the web besides a mouse and a pair of eyes. Users navigate for example with a keyboard only or with their voice.

    All the functionality, including menus, links and forms should work using a keyboard only. This is essential for all assistive technology to work properly. The only way to test this, at the moment, is manually. The best time to test this is during development.

    How to keyboard test:

    Tab through your pages, links and forms to do the following tests:

    • Confirm that all links can be reached and activated via keyboard, including any in dropdown submenus.
    • Confirm that all links get a visible focus indicator (e.g., a border highlight).
    • Confirm that all visually hidden links (e.g. skip links) become visible when in focus.
    • Confirm that all form input fields and buttons can be accessed and used via keyboard.
    • Confirm that all interactions, buttons, and other controls can be triggered via keyboard — any action you can complete with a mouse must also be performable via keyboard.
    • Confirm that focus doesn’t move in unexpected ways around the page.
    • Confirm that using shift+tab to move backwards works as well.

    Markup: Image Alignment

    Welcome to image alignment! The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a paddle and let’s get started.

    On the topic of alignment, it should be noted that users can choose from the options of None, Left, Right, and Center. In addition, they also get the options of Thumbnail, Medium, Large & Fullsize. Be sure to try this page in RTL mode and it should look the same as LTR.

    Image Alignment 580x300

    The image above happens to be centered.

    Image Alignment 150x150 The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned.

    As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

    And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

    Image Alignment 1200x400

    The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

    Image Alignment 1200x400

    And we try the large image again, with the center alignment since that sometimes is a problem. The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

    Image Alignment 300x200

    And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

    In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

    And just when you thought we were done, we’re going to do them all over again with captions!

    Image Alignment 580x300
    Look at 580×300 getting some caption love.

    The image above happens to be centered. The caption also has a link in it, just to see if it does anything funky.

    Image Alignment 150x150
    Bigger caption than the image usually is.

    The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned.

    As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

    And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

    Image Alignment 1200x400
    Comment for massive image for your eyeballs.

    The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

    Image Alignment 1200x400
    This massive image is centered.

    And again with the big image centered. The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

    Image Alignment 300x200
    Feels good to be right all the time.

    And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

    In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

    And that’s a wrap, yo! You survived the tumultuous waters of alignment. Image alignment achievement unlocked! One last thing: The last item in this post’s content is a thumbnail floated right. Make sure any elements after the content are clearing properly.

    Markup: Text Alignment

    Default

    This is a paragraph. It should not have any alignment of any kind. It should just flow like you would normally expect. Nothing fancy. Just straight up text, free flowing, with love. Completely neutral and not picking a side or sitting on the fence. It just is. It just freaking is. It likes where it is. It does not feel compelled to pick a side. Leave him be. It will just be better that way. Trust me.

    Left Align

    This is a paragraph. It is left aligned. Because of this, it is a bit more liberal in it’s views. It’s favorite color is green. Left align tends to be more eco-friendly, but it provides no concrete evidence that it really is. Even though it likes share the wealth evenly, it leaves the equal distribution up to justified alignment.

    Center Align

    This is a paragraph. It is center aligned. Center is, but nature, a fence sitter. A flip flopper. It has a difficult time making up its mind. It wants to pick a side. Really, it does. It has the best intentions, but it tends to complicate matters more than help. The best you can do is try to win it over and hope for the best. I hear center align does take bribes.

    Right Align

    This is a paragraph. It is right aligned. It is a bit more conservative in it’s views. It’s prefers to not be told what to do or how to do it. Right align totally owns a slew of guns and loves to head to the range for some practice. Which is cool and all. I mean, it’s a pretty good shot from at least four or five football fields away. Dead on. So boss.

    Justify Align

    This is a paragraph. It is justify aligned. It gets really mad when people associate it with Justin Timberlake. Typically, justified is pretty straight laced. It likes everything to be in it’s place and not all cattywampus like the rest of the aligns. I am not saying that makes it better than the rest of the aligns, but it does tend to put off more of an elitist attitude.

    Markup: Title With Special Characters ~`!@#$%^&*()-_=+{}[]/\;:'”?,.>

    Putting special characters in the title should have no adverse effect on the layout or functionality.

    Special characters in the post title have been known to cause issues with JavaScript when it is minified, especially in the admin when editing the post itself (ie. issues with metaboxes, media upload, etc.).
