It’s just data

Defer

Tony Gentilcore: WebKit nightly builds now support the HTML5 async and defer script attributes. This makes it easier for web pages to load faster by downloading JavaScript without blocking other elements of the page.

I’ve done some informal testing, and it appears that defer does have an effect on XHTML pages, at least on Firefox.  I’ve started to modify my pages accordingly.  If anybody sees any problems, let me know.


Fixed a timing problem using defer on my planets.

If you turn off page styles in Firefox 4.0bpre8, your WHATWG logo is a black circle.

I see the same behavior with Firefox 3.6.11.  Apparently internally Firefox treats fill="none" as a style (opacity=0 perhaps?).
