Down To The Bare HTML, It's CSS Naked Day Again

CSS Naked Day 2008

This year, April 9th is that time of year again. The time when you say, who needs CSS? Who needs fancy design at all? Who needs anything more than clean, semantic HTML to present information to the web?

April 9th is CSS Naked Day, brainchild of Dustin Diaz and the single reason that within the last month I received hits to last year's announcement from searches such as "stripping on the web", "naked forever" and "proud to be naked". Bonus search results aside, the day is meant to show that well marked up HTML content is readable, accessible and essential as the base for any site.

Do you have the markup to take part? Lose your CSS for web standards, next week!
