ThinkLemon Reset: Part 1 – Bye bye CSS

Article: ThinkLemon Reset Once in a while one’s got to do the opposite. Instead of filling this site with cruft like CSS and scripts, I felt like going back to the roots. Plain ol’ HTML and getting it right, once and for all… *

I don’t know if spring has anything to do with it, but it seems that everyone’s redesigning their site/blog. Instead of getting into the frenzy myself I’ve set my goal at a more basic level. E.g. getting understood by my friendly neigbourhood search-engine indexer and maybe in the process people who don’t/can’t enjoy all the CSS/Script stuffing (screen-readers/PDA’s/Mobile/…).

Where’s this going? I don’t know. I do know that the scripts, div’s and what else I deem unnecessary are up next. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
Don’t worry. In due time the CSS/Script will return. Think of it as a live experiment or “Eating my own dogfood“.

* Wishfull thinking in progress

  4. @Jake: I altered the ‘text’. Sorry.
    I also uploaded some more updated stuff, but I doubt that anyone, but the W3C validator, notices. So no improvement on the crap front, yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. […] After having thrown out the CSS last month, I’ve been messing with the templating code that make up this WordPress theme. Though the default Kubrick theme is great, it took me a while to get all bits sorted out. Some cleaning up, re-arranging, looking up, inline documenting, debugging, etc. led to what you’re looking at now. Sound HTML markup (~semantically correct) that happens to validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict. That last bit was evidently a case of ‘because I can’. But also a target to aim for. […]
