It’s that time again… time to strip down and show off your
Yep, it is the 3rd annual “CSS Naked Day“, and I am participating this year. I have missed it the past two years, but even though the date changed, I made it this time.
The purpose of CSS Naked Day, which was created by Dustin Diaz in 2006, is to promote Web Standards. It shows off those who work hard enough to code our sites properly, using valid (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure.
While this year I stripped my styles by hand, I think next year I will use Aja Lapus’s WordPress Naked Day plugin for the blog. In just one click (activate it in your plugins area) you can strip down to your markup and show your stuff!

This project involved the design of the new look, XHTML and CSS coding, and theming of a 1shoppingcart.com ecommerce package that Heather has chosen for her product management.

Yes. I found yet another one. This one made me chuckle however as I decided to search upon this text from my front page:
Today, before someone will buy from you, it is almost certain that they will attempt to research your name on the internet.
What the search on that lead me to, just made me think, “WHY in the word would someone copy THAT statement from my content, and publish it on a website as their own? Do they not think ‘I’ would research and catch it, LOL?”
Well, I did and here are my findings:

Come’on designers – you are ‘creators’ – can you not come up with your own verbage to sell your services? I wonder how her business, since it will be known that researching her will come up with me, and the fact that she plagiarized content, will be once I hit publish on this…………
