Naked for a Day

It’s the third annual CSS Naked Day, so I’ve disabled all stylesheets for the blog. This is what the site would look like every day if not for the magic of Cascading Style Sheets: functional, but not very pretty.

CSS Naked Day is the brainchild of User Interface Engineer Dustin Diaz. It is intended to “to promote Web Standards with layered semantic markup, and a clear separation between content, and presentation to enhance accessibility.”

This year, more than a thousand websites have signed up for the event, signifying their intent to strip away the pretty CSS and show the world what’s underneath.

EDIT: Bloginatrix Lorelle van Fossen has an excellent explanation of why we’re observing CSS Naked Day on her meta-blog, Lorelle on WordPress.

CSS Naked Day 2007

Things may not look pretty if you’re reading this on 05 April, but don’t worry, everything will be back to “normal” tomorrow. CSS Naked Day has rolled around again, and this is the second year I’m participating. Today and today only, I’m not concerned about margins and padding, positioning and color. What you’re seeing is the site as it is generated without Cascading Style Sheets.

Tomorrow, the pretty will return. For now, you get to see KJToo.com with its clothes off.
