I’ve got a major deadline today with my publisher, so this post is short, but the Wired news article and weblog posts I list below are so, so important to check out regarding Website design and development and the use of CSS. Jeffrey Zeldman’s post today, Only defenestrate, put me over the edge, stopping me in my tracks to write this post here with the links below. I’ll write more after I meet my deadline, as I’m so passionate about this issue.
