I’m reading Jeffrey Zeldman’s brand new book from New Riders press called Designing With Web Standards and it’s quite eye-opening. I do definitely believe that the way that most people (including myself) have been building websites will be obsolete in about 1 to 2 years time. I’ve realized this for a while and that CSS and XML and DOM is the future of Web computing, but it’s powerful to see Zeldman make the case coherently with an eye toward the history and mis-management of browser development. (Browsers are how we see the Web, in all its beauty and bluster.) The crusade to build more standards-based websites is a natural evolution that has coincied with every media from books to television and I welcome it with clenched teeth.
