As I might have mentioned (or not? who can keep track), I have a very large collection of movies and books. I own a program to manage those collections (actually two programs, one for movies and one for books) and one of its it features is that it outputs are some static HTML files that contain the collection, together with thumbnails and paging and other goodies. I’d really like to include these into this site, but I don’t know enough PHP yet to manipulate XML files. So I’ll just give you the links:
They obviously have problems with being too large, each thumbnail is a different size, etc. And obviously the stylesheet (colors, fonts etc) is completely different, not only with this site, but with themselves too! All I can say in my defense is that the program exports plain HTML, parsed with some custom XSLTs. But I’ll get to it!
