It’s April 9th somewhere around the world and that means it’s time for the annual CSS Naked Day. Just how elegant and semantic is your website’s markup? Stripping out your stylesheets will determine that. Good houses must have good foundations, and so must good sites.
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>.
As an aside, I like that this ‘Day’ is arbitrarily stretched out to 48 hours instead of the usual 24 to accommodate locations all over the globe. I think more worldwide events and holidays should be more timezone-neutral.
We need more standards-focused advocacies like Blue Beanie Day, the countless kill IE6 websites, and this.
