What a great idea!
I just skimmed through some of the stuff they have available already and it looks very usable. I hope a lot of people can benefit from this (myself included).
I just sent out two links to a new client who is relatively clueless about the web. This is going to save me a lot of client education time and stop some "debates" before they get started.
I have 1 more quote for their testimonials.
|You should use W3C standards - Eric Law (Microsoft IE Team) |
It is glad to see they are now behind W3C standards... We just have to wait for them to actually implement them rather than just talk about them.

I think I remember an article mentioning IE8 is going to offer better support (proper rendering) for W3C standards.
I don't care too much about standards, but I'm leaning more and more towards using Opera as my main browser, it has all you need and more (plus it feels it's safer than IE and FF).
Just spent the last ten minutes reading it - starting with the first article. Got bored, irritated really, and stopped.
They need a good editor to cut out the cruft from this stuff. Way, way too long-winded.
Gotta cut down on the word count, fellas, you can't bore people into using standards-based techniques.
They're asking for feedback. This is mine.
Agree with poppyrich.
Excellent initiative but for heaven's sake, Chris Mills, if this is for mass consumption, keep it: pithy, abrupt, to the point.
Let an editor loose on your copy with a chainsaw. You'll end up with something you can be proud of and everyone can benefit from.
<< quietly agrees with above two posts
I was only able to navigate series using back button :(.. no next links?
ooops sorry they're now at the top, still not very accessible or obvious after you've read the article though

One mantra I hum: No-one has EVER won an argument with a client
After a quick skim, I was bored and a tad embarrassed to think that my repeated recommendations of the browser will/might be associated with something so dry
Unless (until?) it's very heavily edited, I very much doubt I'll be using it to back up the 'standards' approach

They missed one:
Glad it ain't just me.
Shocking, considering how much good stuff there is out there in print and on the net that could be re-worked. No need to re-invent the wheel.
They'd be better off making a deal with W3schools or somesuch for a special edition of their content.
It's been done, and done better.
