comment Why are <section>, <header> and <footer> tags not used much when I see sites that are in HTML 5?
Examples? Many sites just use templates, and they may not have been updated with the new semantic structure

comment Subclassing to avoid line length
@SuperUser - nope, still can't really see the problem from your description - do you have an actual code example? In any event, it does sound like you're worrying too much about the wrong thing.

comment Subclassing to avoid line length
sorry if i'm being dense - but how does subclassing reduce the number of characters per line? I can see that it would reduce the number of lines per class, but that's something else

comment How do I go about debugging a PHP error?
you might want to set the error_reporting value in htaccess/apache to 2147483647 - it's a bitmask, and the exact flags change between different versions of PHP

comment How can I work on multiple programming languages at same time
It's weird - I had this kind of problem with French/Spanish back in high school. Now, I'm programming various things in PHP, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and I just don't have the same issues - the only reason I can offer is I'm more thoughtful about what I'm doing, and I care more about it.

comment Is PHP actually a web framework?
I didn't say it was a framework - just that it has elements more traditionally associated with frameworks. IoC is another, important, element of frameworks, but I wouldn't say it is the one defining feature.

comment What's the difference between “Add to home screen” safari HTML5 webapp vs HTML5 webapp wrapped in UIWebView?
appcache does work - but it has limits, and is not as simple as "adding to home screen"

comment How to get from 1 byte to 2 bytes
2 bytes is valid - you have to remember that you're talking about "width" here. 1 byte = 1 bank of 8 bits (2^8), 2 bytes = 2 banks (2^(8*2)), 3 bytes = 3 banks (2^(8*3)), etc.

comment Which design patterns would I use for this algorithm?
+1 If you don't need to be able to place input or extract output at any step but the first and last, or exchange one of those steps, why complicate things. SRP holds, as your goal is to generate a random formulated string.

comment articles in variable names and hard-coding strings
hard coded strings makes for very difficult internationalisation - but if this isn't even a long term goal (ie, you know that your market will always be limited to one language) then it isn't much of a problem.

why not ask two separate questions instead of bundling two for one?
