Dit is precies waarom ik websites maken wat minder leuk vind dan vroeger. Tuurlijk, CSS maakt veel mogelijkheden, maar in plaats van transparante gifs gebruik je nu CSS hacks. Herkenbaar. The breakdown of modern webdesign
Because I now use aside posts, I will hereby dump all of my previous links in some thematic posts the next few days, today we start with design. All these links were hand checked and have been found ok.

Met Internet Explorer 7 en haar betere CSS ondersteuning in aantocht zou de vlag uitmoeten bij elke webdesigner maar helaas, zo simpel is het niet.
De bottomline? Speel op safe en hoop op mooi dingen in de toekomst. Helaas, het is niet anders maar structurele oplossingen voor verschillen in weergave tussen browsers en -versies zijn op korte termijn nog niet in zicht.
Did you say list? This will help: Listamatic: one list, many options
Incredible collection of lists, all with clear code and easy to implement. Also has links to lists. A real list of links to list resources. I like this linklist a lot 🙂
The best thing about web standards is never having to say you’re sorry. (Joe)
Well, actually there are a lot of good things about webstandards, but besides that your documents are semantically correct, more accessible, faster to load and platform independent, we now have a way of creating webpages that is ‘the-right-way-to-do-it’ and that puts the burden of not being rendered correctly where it belongs: at the Browser vendor!
So yeah, you do not have to say sorry anymore. If somebody wants to visit valid pages with a poor browser, it’s their problem.
I don’t mean to say that proper rendering shouldn’t interest you though… just that when you have to choose between a hack or using standards… well, you figure it out 🙂
The WordPress community is definately heating up, more and more templates and plugins are released, I just found very cool template that is very ‘today’s style’.
I’m just a bit afraid that in a while the WordPress community will be populated with ‘Kubricks’, but then again, I might release this retro theme 😉
Mezzoblue’s cribsheet – all the CSS bugs you can imagine… and some more.

Strict is next.
Do we make links blue and underlined? What do we do with the visited links. And do we have to take Jacob Nielsen litterally?
Of course we do not. Nielsen already quit claiming blue underlined links as the only right way some time ago, but some of the designers Cameron Moll has asked about their views still act as if Nielsen wishes to limit their artistic freedom.
A lot of familiar arguments, and some subtle remarks as well. Interesting though nothing revolutionary.
