comment Are there any frameworks available for drawing with CSS?
It seems like a large leap to go from hacky shapes with border tricks, to drawing, in plain CSS and JS. Canvas is just JS anyway...

comment Tags or specify revision?
@StephenC because a release of Application 1 might rely on specific tags of Projects A, B, C and D. That's what I'm assuming, anyway. I'd personally keep them all in separate repos and use svn:externals to lock them to particular revisions or tags, but hey.

Except 'todo' might appear in something else like a variable name, or other comment text...

comment When a task can be accomplished by either Javascript or CSS, is it better to use CSS?
Well said, but for your second example I would also not hesitate to use (a better named) CSS class. There is a definite overlap between the two in terms of presentation and behaviour, but in these examples it's pretty straightforward - the behaviour is changing the appearance on mouseover, the appearance is described in CSS.

comment Why is Zend Framework so complicated?
Even with knowledge of the concepts, it's damn hard to get into, and to be honest I don't think it's worth the effort. The documentation is often wrong, examples on the web after usually out of date, the IRC support channel is generally dead, and from what I've seen there's no other place to get support.

comment What advantages do we have when creating a separate mapping table for two relational tables
It's not just Rails-speak, virtually all of the PHP frameworks I've used refer to it as HABTM.

Even with your definition I still have absolutely no idea what Spring does.

comment Should we hire one consultant for website design and another for development or find someone who will do both?
That's not really helpful... in terms of website building, frontend and backend code can quite easily be done by the same person.

comment PHP Frameworks That Don't Use a Front Controller?
Yes, but if you're using the whole shebang (the MVC part of it) then yes, you do have to use a front controller.

comment Are RSpec and Cucumber really worth it?
@Skydreamer: Probably not necessary, but it might be good practice. As long as you're doing testing, you're on the right track :)
