More tiny industrial railways

(Actually the same industrial railway as before, but this is a different photo angle.)


I get a border, but no photo and no indication of the presence of a link?

Which browser are you using?

Konqueror, where flash usually dies a little more loudly, and YouTube redirects generally don’t appear at all.

Works fine with Chromium.

Sorry for the confusion!

I must admit I didn’t even think of testing my xhtmlification against KDE, because it’s been about a decade since the last time I ran it (and, blissfully, it’s been over two years since the last time I’ve even dealt with X11) – I don’t even think I’ve got a machine that’s capable of running x11 these days (I do have a freebsd box, but it’s a server and I made certain not to install the whole x11 tarpit there.)

I’ll have to see if anyone has done xhtmlification of the gootube embed code in such a way that it works with KDE.

Well, I’m not actually running KDE; I’m using AfterStep. I just like Konqueror.

Nor do I have Konqueror set up to admit flash exists; that’s what Chrom(e|ium) is for. So it’s definitely not a high-traffic issue, and now I now what it is. (Feeling rather dumb for not trying a different browser before mentioning.)

And, really, all it likely takes in a para element in the object that says “this object does not display in your browser”; everything between the open and close tags of the object element gets executed if it doesn’t display, and you can put almost anything in an object element.

I didn’t realize you could get the browser by itself; I went to the konquerer web page to see if I could grab a copy, and all the [download] section did was point me at places where I could download kde.
