Happy CSS Naked Day

Once a year is CSS Naked Day. Even though this it the fourth annual Naked Day, I have considered it, but chickened out the last three years. This year I have removed all CSS from this website, stripping it entirely of its design.

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 my <body>.

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. CSS Naked Day is a way to promote web standards by showing your site is (x)html compliant and structured correctly.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get all my pages back to normal tomorrow.
