While this session was largely dominated by Daniel Goldman’s Opera discussion (which was marked with many mysterious references to the Nintendo Wii, or more specifically the Opera Browser contained therein), there were a couple of interesting bits that I captured from the panelists:
- Even those that evangelize the use of well formed CSS and HTML still find tabled designs acceptable.
I personally agree, at least until we get some cooperation between browsers.
- Reducing code bloat brings discipline to an unordered arena.
If the unordered arena is WYSIWYG generated web pages, then I wholeheartedly agree with this concept.
- Using well formed, streamlined code strengthens semantics.
I have been saying this for a few years now and was pleased to hear some support from an expert panelist.
