Today is CSS Naked Day, so I've removed the CSS stylesheets from this site. It's a demonstration of both the power of CSS (look how plain the site looks without it), and its flexibility (see how the pages are still usable).

Looking at these pages without their styles, there's a number of infelicities, but they're good enough, and the styles will be back tomorrow.

Technicality: there are a few style= attributes on these pages still, and the comment form has styles aplenty. Tough.

You're site degrades to no CSS very well IMO. Even looks nice in a console browser. Good work!

Grrr,

The link you gave is blocked at work. Probably because of the Naked in the title. Doh.

CSS, when used well, is truly amazing. In the Web Developer Toolbar extension for Firefox you can turn off all the styles for a page. It's always amazing to me what something looks like when you remove the CSS.

Hate to say it, but I like it better without the CSS. :-P

Your blog is unusually nice & clean with the style, but this is far more readable. Then again, I'm one of those people who sets their minimum font size to 12, so go figure.

Ew, Ned, I think it looks ugly and plain.
