CSS off, CSS on

by eric on April 10th, 2008 in: Web Design

Well, another CSS Naked Day is over and I’m happy to have participated.

It’s a wonderful exercise, seeing plain jane markup without the benefit of CSS styling. It illustrates:

  1. the power of CSS, and
  2. how clean, non-presentational xhtml markup and logical document structure can make a site usable even without the cheery look & feel

As part of site testing, I strip away stylesheets to see what the content looks like to search engines and other devices that don’t support CSS.

I’m buck (CSS) naked!

In celebration of CSS Naked Day, I’ve stripped off my CSS and am running with my semantic markup hanging out.

Somebody sew my head on please!

CSS Naked Day is April 9th

sewmyheadon.com will strip down and get naked on April 9th in support of CSS Naked Day.

Dustin Diaz created this ‘holiday’ to promote Web Standards by stripping away the presentational (CSS) elements on a site to show semantic markup and good structure.

If you’re running WordPress, you automate your site’s undressing using the CSS Naked Day Plugin by Aja Lapus.

I’ve got a little toning up to do beforehand – off to my workout. 🙂
