Standards Watch: Design Observer

Illustration for Standards Watch: Design Observer I am an avid reader of Design Observer (DO) blog — writings about design & culture. They feature essays, ideas and critique about the issues of design in its broadest sense.

Although the content and the authors are fantastic, the website still uses HTML tables for layout, fixed 10px font size and images (without alt atributes) for section headers.

In order to thank the authors for their amazing writing, I have rebuilt the layout following the best practice of web design, and using well marked-up HTML and CSS. This way DO would be friendly to all user, mobiles and search engines.

View the result: Design Observer with beautiful HTML and standards.

This layout could be easily turned into a WordPress theme which would give the authors greater control over the content and functionality of the website.
