DLadybug removed her post. My post will not make sense unless you know the basic idea of her post. Let me sumarize what it was about:
I believe I am entitled to paraphrase DLadybug since she published her post so that I could have even quoted from it under the fair usage clause. Having published something the publisher cannot remove it from the world and is not entitled to do so. Now since I could have even quoted her (which I choose not to do to respect her whishes as far as I was able to do) I can paraphrase her as well.
Itīs not so much the prospect that a client may add huge[/6] andcolorful text to a page that is bad. It is the suggested approach to mangle structure and style. I couldnīt care less whether a client added new copy that is nicely structured and then changed the style sheets to display it in wierd and ugly colors.
I guess as far as this is concerned I operate under a sort of separation thesis. As long as structure and style are separated I can go ahead and use my own user style sheets if the content is good and I want to view it in a way that I like. Just like any legal positivist will go berserk when the separation thesis is violated I really dislike pages that go against the strict separation of style and structure.
BTW I do believe the is no such thing as a separation thesis when it comes to law and morality ;-).
