Naked Day

Nope, you’re not seeing things: Today is April 5th and that means it’s NAKED DAY! The stylesheet has been disabled on this site in support of the 2nd Annual CSS Naked Day. (This is the first year that I’ve participated in the event. Last year had 763 official participants!) The idea behind NAKED DAY is to promote Web Standards. Plain and simple. This includes proper use of (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words. To learn more more about why styles are disabled on this website visit the Annual CSS Naked Day website for more information.

Standards-Geeks rejoice… Microsoft has acquiesced and accepted Mozilla’s option for RSS iconography. (Hallelujah… they had some pretty awful options they were toying around with…) You too can now spread the love for the delightlful little orange icon, by heading on over to feedicons.com, where designer Matt Brett has graciously created a site for distributing the standardized icon to the masses. Do the web a favor, and grab the files! Incorporate them into your site… you’ll be doing the RSS-uninitiated a favor.
