@stilkov Client- or server-side? For the concrete problem, there’re solutions on both sides, w/ pros & cons (think indexing, non-JS env.,…).

via Echofon in reply to stilkov

@stilkov Oh! “Compiling” HTML sends students the wrong signal IMHO. I’d prefer a pre-built HTML template w/ the polyfill (& comment on why).

via Echofon in reply to stilkov

@stilkov Wait, does that mean your students have to compile their HTML after each iteration? Or is the conversion happening on-the-fly?

via Echofon in reply to stilkov

@stilkov Not aware of any, but should be simple enough to create one :-)

@stilkov If it has to be pure HTML (sans server), then exactly this is an ideal candidate for iframes or even frames (as ugly as it sounds).

via Echofon in reply to stilkov

@stilkov Then I fear iframe is your technology of choice (if you want to keep it simple and entry-level friendly).
