As I was working on this design, jQuery 1.8 was released. This is just a quick video to rely the fact that this kind of thing happens as you develop sites and during pre-release development is the perfect time to upgrade stuff like this. We test it on a page that has the most jQuery on it as of yet and everything works great.

We upgrade the version and link it up from Google (good source for that) using a Protocol Relative URL. That doesn't mean much right this second, but using a protocol relative URL means that if we eventually use HTTPS somewhere on the site, it will load jQuery over HTTPS automatically.

Posting Code

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
