CSS Naked Day
Today, April 5th, is CSS Naked Day. This means that if you are reading this on the website and not via RSS, what you are seeing is Clagnut with the CSS stripped off. (Technically you are still seeing the CSS applied by the browser, but let’s not split hairs).
So why CSS Naked Day? The original idea came from Dustin Diaz and is intended to promote Web Standards, but more particularly proper use of semantic, meaningful markup. Even the inventor of CSS, Håkon Wium Lie, is keen on the idea:
This is a fun idea, fully in line with the reasons for creating CSS in the first place. While most designers are attracted by the extra presentational capabilities, saving HTML from becoming a presentational language was probably a more important motivation for most people who participated in the beginning.
So is your site laid bare? Is it site still understandable with the CSS peeled off?
