A good while back I asked about Standard Web Fonts. According to my stats app, it turns out that a lot of other people are also interested in finding out the answer. I was going to put together a detailed post on the subject but after a quick search on Google I found an article that covers everything my post would have.
Don’t bother with web standards!
Quite the statement huh? No, I’m not saying it, but Microsoft essentially are.
According to The Register’s article ‘Microsoft breaks IE8 interoperability promise‘, Microsoft intend on displaying a broken page icon next to all web pages that are standards compliant.
What does this say to your average Joe Blogg user? Standards = wrong. At least that’s the way I see it. And of course some lots of those users will probably want to design their own web sites. Do you think they will design to standards now? I think not!

CSS Search Engine
With the launch of Google‘s Custom Search Engine, I decided to create a search engine specifically for CSS.

My CSS Reboot
As you can see, Wired Vision has a new design! This is inline with my CSS Reboot.
The new design uses web standards instead of the old table based layout.
There might be a few small issues (list items for example) that I still need to work out, but overall it should display fine in all major browsers.
Let me know what you think :)
