Wired News Redesigns With Web Standards

Friday October 11th, 2002

Brent Marshall, Anonymous, sacolcor and Doron all wrote in to tell us that Wired News has a new, standards-compliant design. The site, part of Terra Lycos (Condé Nast owns the magazine bit), is now coded in XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS with not a <table> tag in sight (though as Scott Andrew points out, the front page doesn't quite validate right now). In addition, the site now features user-selectable alternative stylesheets. It also looks great.

Doron adds: "Eric Meyer from the Netscape Evangelism group has an interview with the Network Design Manager at Netscape DevEdge." Eric Meyer is also quoted in the Terra Lycos press release.

Although for some common types of image, PNG files are slightly larger than GIFs (even when compressed efficiently i.e. not using Photoshop), a fact which is largely ignored...

More to the point, though, um, you're not supposed to use -moz-border-radius on the Web; it's non-standard, which in fact makes it worse than a font tag since that may be deprecated but was at least in the standard, where as -moz properties are specifically non-standard and will never work on any other browsers...
