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.

In IE, a page served with content-type: text/xml, application/xml, or the preferred application/xhtml+xml will be displayed as a source code outline rather than as rendered HTML. The switch to application/xhtml+xml will probably take place sometime around the switch to XHTML 2, an incompatible change that pushes XHTML toward the functionality of docbook.
