comment Providing alternative text for copy/paste
While I'm still interested in a possible answer to this question, the approach I ended up using (for the case described in the comments above) was: table td { white-space: nowrap; max-width: 300px; overflow: hidden; }

comment Providing alternative text for copy/paste
Of course, the best solution is to probably just provide a "copy to clipboard" button that copies the full, untrimmed data. Regardless, I thought I'd ask, because I remembered having done something like this in the past.

comment Providing alternative text for copy/paste
Thanks for your insight. I'm planning on using it on a backend that displays large amounts of data in a table. Some cells contain a lot of text that makes the rows incredibly tall (since there are so many wrapped lines in the cell). The idea is to display a preview of the text, but when the user copies the text, he/she gets the full version. Speaking of which, writing this comment reminds me - I think I might have solved this by using HTML/CSS to effectively "disable" the soft wrapping of the cell...

comment Why don't I get a PHP notice that the array index does not exist if I put an isset() in the same IF-statement?
This is a good answer about short-circuiting. Additionally, it's important to point out the "implied" fact that isset() is a "language construct" that, unlike regular functions, will never generate E_NOTICE.

comment Is there a function to make a copy of a PHP array to another?
As this is the most up-voted answer here (and for good reason!), please clarify at the beginning (for PHP beginners) with something simple like: "In short: Copy an array in PHP with $a_copy = $a;". Until then, @Reinis I.'s answer gets my upvote.

comment What is the difference between a beveled and a mitered edge?
I agree - I thought the same thing about rotating the work piece. The only exception is that I think most people would probably lay the piece down on its largest dimension instead of the opposite and slicing down through the piece "vertically". The latter approach certainly isn't as stable or safe as placing the widest dimension down. Not to mention that doing a bunch of cuts with a 45 degree "bevel" on the miter saw would be super awkward. Regardless, this is why I came to the conclusion that there's no real consensus. It's probably always best to clarify!

comment Unobtrusive ways to protect plywood corners?
Ok, I'm overdoing it with the comments here, but you've inspired a lot of thought. :) When you mention "hardwood trim", are you referring to actually using hardwood for the corners of the cabinet? Or, just taking some very thin hardwood stock and pinning it to the edge? I've seen that approach used before; I suppose it could be a decent solution. I also wouldn't need to use the beveled edge joint, and could just do a butt joint since it wouldn't show.

comment Unobtrusive ways to protect plywood corners?
Also, you mentioned the seasonal movement on the beveled joints. Am I better off (in terms of seasonal movement and corner durability) just doing a butt joint with iron-on edge banding?

comment Unobtrusive ways to protect plywood corners?
I like the idea of using hardwoods on the sides/corners, but for this question, I'm curious how I can accomplish the described goal without complicating the actual woodworking. Any other thoughts? Thank you, by the way! :)
