CSS Play's "zero dollar ads page"

You must have visited just after an update when I didn't spot a '&' in someones alt/title text.

All my pages validate and they are served as application/xhtml+xml to browsers that understand.

The zero dollar ads page is more of a demonstration than free ads.
I thought it might be nice to give my visitors something for free to help with this demo, so if you want to post your web site here then just email me with the info required (see page).

I have a daily average of over 100,000 hits (Google rank 6) so you may boost your hit rate using this page (you've got nothing to lose).

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE

I didn't realize stu is a guru here, neat. . . .

My frist response to that page was, why isn't CSS creator listed?

I visit a lot but don't have much time to post since CSS PLaY took off.

I'd be only too glad to put this site on (although it is in my links on the home page).

Thanks for replying Stu, it is nice to have met you. I like that ad free page, it has some interesting links for design ideas.

This question is WAY off topic, and anyone can answer it if they like. Is it just me, or does there seem to be a larger ratio of accomplished CSS designers from the UK? I wonder why this might be (not that it should be any other way). Sometimes when I read a response, I go back and re-read it with an English accent. . . . Laughing out loud

Apologies Stu, should have put a smiley at the end of that comment , it just amused me at the time, and I am more than aware that your pages would validate and realised that you were content negotiating.

Just shows how little it takes to kick the xml parser over and raises that question over the wisdom of the error handling of the xml parser.

One thing I did note- and many do it- is that you include a meta tag that quotes content as application/xhtml+xml even though IE may be requesting the page, it's a small point as your header would supersede the meta tag, but it could be changed for browsers without the xml parser.

I have chosen to use mod_rewrite, not php, to serve the pages correctly to browsers that understand, and have used content="application/xhtml+xml; as this is required for xhtml1.1 according to w3c.

If IE cannot understand, and serves the pages as text/html no matter what I do, then in my opinion this is good enough.

IE7, by the way, will also not recognise application/xhtml+xml.
