Zeldman asks: 2002 Feb 03

Is CSS design really ready for prime time?

To which I reply. No, it’s not. It’s a little late to be asking this given that people have been pushing for xhtml+css for months. I’m not abandoning tables yet. And how can I? To give the best experience, to the most folk, I need to strike the balance between forward compatibility and backward compatibility. And that means I’m not using 100% structural markup. Yet.

But I’m sure I’ll be able to someday.

And yes, I’m willing to help with web standards. Obviously, the job of advocating standards is not over by a longshot. How about we start pushing for more complete CSS1, CSS2, DOM in Opera, PNG, SMIL, SVG in all the browsers? There’s work to be done indeed.
