PubCon '06: CSS & HTML Coding Today

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.
Max Speed

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.

    After so much time trying to figure out what exactly the Nintendo Wii really is…I still don’t understand. What makes it so much better than any of the consoles that are already out there? It seems like such a secretive creation. Even looking at their actual website I still feel that we would have to purchase it to finally understand.

    Does anyone out there know why this is so much better than anything else?

    I read that you can text message with Wii…but I can already text message with my cell phone. I read that you can check the weather anywhere in the world…but I can already do that with not only my cell phone, but also on the weather channel, and on the internet. What can I do with Nintendo Wii that I can’t do with everything that I already own?
