CSS Naked Day

09 Apr 2009

You might be wondering what happened to my design. As with years past (2007, 2008), I'm participating in CSS Naked Day to show my support for web standards, and to show off the design of shiflett.org:

The idea behind this event 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. It's time to show off your <body>.

Although I haven't the time to fully explain this thought right now, you have to look beyond the surface to truly appreciate good design, so participating in CSS Naked Day does more to show off my design than to hide it.

This is what Håkon Wium Lie has to say about the event:

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.

Is your site naked?
