This is somewhat off-topic.
I was wondering what people thought about parameterized classes?
<a class="group:x" href="a.html"></a>
<a class="group:x" href="a.rss"></a>
<a class="group:x" href="a.atom"></a>
<a class="group:y" href="b.png"></a>
<a class="group:y" href="b.jpg"></a>
Perhaps the above could be Semantic HTML to mark alternate links.
Where "a.html", "a.rss", and "a.atom" would be a set of alternates.
And "b.png" and "b.jpg" would be another set of alternates.
(This would have the advantage where these links could be very very
loosely coupled. Which is why I might write Semantic HTML like this.)
I believe that CSS would have problems styling these types of class
names. For example, you could NOT do something like:
/* CSS stuff here */
Those types of CSS wildcards aren't allowed AFAIK.
Can anyone see any draw back from using parameterized classes?
