Convert a Phone Number With Letters to Numbers for iOS Devices

Plainly marked up telephone numbers which contain letters can’t be dialed or saved on iOS devices. For example, the phone number 1-888-899-4VPI when pressed on an iPhone will try to dial 1-888-899-4. By combining microformats with jQuery you can create an easy to dial number for your iOS users.

Realistic, Velocity Driven, jQuery Slide Down Animation

Many drop-down menus animate by “sliding down” or more accurately having their height animated as a function of time. It’s a nice effect. But if you have a menu item that contains 15 links it will animate in the same time as a menu item that has two links. Which sometimes creates an odd effect. Each drop-down no matter the size will take the exact time to open. In everyday experience it takes more time to travel a longer distance than a shorter distance. I wanted to create a slide effect that took this into account.
