Let’s get naked

Today is CSS Naked Day 2010, hopefully many websites will participate and deactivate their styling as I did with this blog. The idea behind CSSND is to promote web standards and proper, semantic markup.

This blog with and without Cascading Style Sheets on the CSSND.

This blog with and without Cascading Style Sheets on the CSSND.

In my opinion web standards such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) tremendously evolved over the last years. Where I used images and tables years ago in order to achieve a proper site layout I can simply use CSS nowadays. In my current project I go even forward and implement transitions, rotations and semi-perspective alignment in a consistent, declarative way.

For a single day, I will deactivate CSS to honor these achievements. Thank you – Håkon Wium Lie, the W3C and the early adopting web community!
