Based on the current design, this new one features valid XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2, with semantic HTML. First a fully standards-compliant browser, now a fully standards-compliant website to top it off!" Note that mozilla.org has not made any official statement regarding the design or whether they plan to use it.

1st. I like the current home page much better than the older, block-style version. The page opens much more of the important resources available to various groups of visitors.

2nd. Many css-styled sites... zeldman.com, glazman's, too I think, for example, fit into older browsers, cell phones, lynx... much better due to the straight-forward markup that css frees for designers to code with. You just need to use a css style sheet hack or 2 to get a reasonably looking page in ie and n4.x, for example.
