Sounds Dirty But Isn't

Are you enjoying CSS Naked Day?

OK, so you've likely never heard of it.

CSS Naked Day, according to its website, 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>.

You strip out the design of your website to show what it would look like without certain parts of its formatting. I guess I get the idea - making your website look crappy for a day is supposed to make people appreciate web designers more. Wait -- it says it's about web standards. I'm not sure how the average reader is going to care abotu standards because suddenly your blog looks wonky. And first time readers of your blog are just going to think you don't know how to use a blog template.

Remember "Typesetting Naked Day" when the Wall Street Journal printed the entire paper in 10 point monospace font, including the headlines? That's when I really started to appreciate... you know... fonts. And standards.

To answer your other question, Yeah, I'm feeling grumpy.
