Yeah man - like I'm sure all my clients will appreciate their beautiful corporate sites being replaced by pure text (semantic or otherwise) for a day ...NOT! Wink

I'm sorry - I know I'm a big spoilsport - but this is just b******s.

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

Laughing out loud

Well this thread will no doubt get listed in his "Places with lame comments" section.

I don't think it's that bad an idea personally (the laughing smiley was for the idea's comic value).
Obviously the only people who would get involved in this are those who feel strongly about standards-based web design.
A quick look through the list shows them to be nearly all blogs, so it's something that the author has chosen to do personally with little likelihood of adverse commercial impact.

I realise it was aimed at personal sites rather than business sites - but still... I must be getting grumpier with old age. HEAVEN KNOWS what I'll be like by the time I get to Hugo's age!

It just strikes me that it's preaching to the converted - sort of pointless

I read somewhere that maybe people should have come up with a different "skin" for the day - or remove all the IE hacks for the day - now that would have been amusing!

Hmmm...that is some idea. Wink

Shock why all sweetness and light O:) just like what I am, a paragon of calm benign munificence, and I heard that sniggering at the back, I wont tolerate that kind of.....

Anyway I agree preaching to those that already understand these matters..pointless. Far better would have been to produce some really smart stylesheets using CSS properties to the max sans all hacks to accommodate IE, just for the day of course or better still just run a script on the get header that rejects any advances from IE politely telling the browser to "eff off this is a modern browser day only"

Still ultimately rather futile exercise methinks (wonder if that will get us in the "places with lame comments" section) Smile
