About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Designing With Web Standards

Tuesday, May 13th, 2003

It’s out. Finally. No more waiting.

By “it” I am of course referring to Zeldman’s new book, Designing With Web Standards (hereafter known as DWWS). I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my own copy, and after perusing the sample chapters it promises to be a very interesting read.

In honor of Zeldman’s latest accomplishment, I’ve added a new graphic to the randomly rotating images you see atop most pages within this site, as well as a banner to the sidebar (which will eventually link to the book via my Amazon affiliate account; if I can only find that email confirmation…) so you will never be more than a click away from this great new resource.

Congrats JZ: nice job, as usual.

Ephemera Rules

I know it’s not much, but for those of you arriving here via Zeldman.com I’d just like to say: “hey.”

Take a look around, kick the tires (this public-redesign is pretty tough when no one gives you feedback…) and let me know what you think, or what you find in the way of problems. Be aware that the deeper you delve into this site, the more inconsistencies you are likely to find…

Almost all my readers are coming from the link on Zeldman’s site today, and I’d certainly love to hear from some of you!

UPDATE: It was pointed out that the site was missing its archives, so for those who want to explore, I present to you: SuperfluousArchives
