    Talking MP3.com is (almost) standards compliant!

    I've been waiting for over six months for MP3.com to come back online and was geeked to find out they've gone XHTML 1.0 Transitional with a CSS layout.

    It's not too bad, but... it still renders in quirks mode in Mozilla because they forgot the <meta> tag content type declaration

    Oh well. Looks good. One more convert... excellent.

    Awesome! I've seen a few articles at Builder.com that promote the use of CSS based design and accessibility - hopefully all of CNET's sites will head in that direction.

    right now the code on www.download.com is almost stereotypical. www.lycos.co.uk went css a while back, that was one of the first major web hosts to go css i think, but they are still far from being standards compliant.

    stopdesign redid blogger, didn't know that, big supprised, it is as valid as lycos . But its a strict format and has fewer errors so I guess it is somewhat better. I do not think they did lycos, but they did do weird news, which is valid xhtml trans.

    stopdesign normally checks out their designs on like every browser they can. so even if it's invalid, it works for pretty much everybody and/or fails gracefully.

    but it still is not valid... can't they go the extra mile?

    I don't see whats so hard about it if you already are using xhtml and css, whats the big deal, I mean what do you have to do, put it an alt tag here and there?
