A Link Curve

Posted June 8th, 2005 by Mike Cherim

This is pretty old so I wouldn’t put too much stock in it. It could be better.

I was thinking about list manipulation and I came up with a really simple way of building curves into a list — “S”-curves, “C”-shapes, or a simple sweep (see the example). The possibilities are endless. Anyway, here’s what I came up with, using inline-styles and a definition list for this example, the former because it was as it was easier in my blog:
