About 3 days ago, a new site for which I had developed the front-end markup, style and script officially launched. Edentiti provides individuals with ways to identify themselves electronically and is primarily targeted at Australians. The idea is that users may register with Edentiti, have their details verified by taking the necessary documentation to any Australia Post office and then use their Edentiti account to securely identify themselves with participating websites.
There are some very nice scripts used throughout the site, including my DOM 2 Events patches and colour fading script, Gez Lemon’s Form Help without Popups and a new script that will change the face of client-side form validation forever! I’ll talk more about this in a future post, but for now feel free to take a look at it in action by going to step 2 of the Create an Edentiti process and start filling in the form. Just be sure to make some errors like typing an invalid date or e-mail address syntax.
If you do choose to register, you will be asked to download and print a PDF file which needs to be taken to an Australia Post office for verification. This PDF gets generated by Prince using HTML and a print stylesheet. I was quite impressed with how easy it was to get Prince to render the document correctly, but this is not really surprising considering it has excellent support for CSS.
I greatly enjoyed working on this site and look forward to assisting them with other projects in the future.
