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.

Sorry, my brain was blanking on that one. Yes, of course you're absolutely right and it should be done using the accept header.

Actually although there was nothing out there last time I looked several months ago, and the rewrite-rule I wrote for it hit an apache bug of some sort, I researched it again and somebody has found a solution. Check the .htaccess listed on this page:

Very nice. (Would be nicer if it worked for / URLs as well as .html URLs...)
