Today, exactly at midnight, my blog (www.optimiced.com), as well as Ani’s blog (www.molif.com), are getting rid of their ‘clothes’.
Today is ‘CSS Naked Day‘ — the day which promotes Web Standards!
This ‘CSS Naked Day’ is 24 to 48 hours long, and will show, that a blog or website with well written HTML+CSS can look pretty well even without its clothes (without its CSS styles).
So, if you see my blog without CSS today or tomorrow (without its design), don’t be puzzled by this fact — we ‘stripped of’ our CSS styles for a good cause — and, as you can judge by the photo above (which we made together a few hours ago), not only of our CSS clothes, but also of our real clothes! (Read also a story at the Blogherald) ;-)
Long live Web Standards! :-D
I put again my CSS clothes after stripping them off for more than 48 hours :)
Overall, this year’s CSS Naked Day was fun (my first participation, btw)…
Over 1600 official participants this year (see the full list at: http://naked.dustindiaz.com)! But rather less noise than when the first CSS Naked Day came…
But I’m happy I was in :-)
To promote Webstandards, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and semantic (X)HTML – this year again CSS Naked Day!
More information: two words by Dustin at his blog, at webstandards.org, and, of course, at the official webpage of the participants :) The list of participating websites is over 900 and growing (see also technorati).
My blog is first-time participator (for obvious reasons – in April 2006 optimiced.com didn’t yet exits;-), which means from midnight EET (East European Time, or GMT + 2h) all CSS styles in it will be disabled for a minimum of 24 hours — and if you wonder, why the design of the website looks so bare – this is the reason:)))
Well, Optimiced is not so beautiful at the moment, but a good cause requires some sacrifice, and I’m willing to do it:)
