Check out great scintillating new look of W3c

[w3.org...]

Features i liked

Standards shown in categories now.
Events , Tasks shown in colors which are easy to note
And note the top style switcher for mobile , print , web..

Nice clean look

I love minimalist clean designs like that. I'm sure most W3C visitors wouldn't want to be wowed by design prowess anyway.

The W3C logo covers the S on the Standards button in IE7.

You'd think the W3C of all people would not mess that up.

Gorgeous. Visually appealing and technically sound. I have new aspirations.

Sure looks like they did a "me too" design - look at #1 and #21 from this awesome Smashing mag article on design:

I like the look, but there are still a number of pages that don't seem to have all the information required by these templates. That should work out nicely over time.

Yes many pages are just place holders at present , but that can be understood from the fact that W3C is huge in terms of both breadth and height in terms of content. We can expect they will get great website online ready in few weeks.

Interesting that even the w3c go for a slightly modified, less in-yer-face-than-the-default style for links.

(In fact, on a longer look, how many link standards do they have for that site - some have a pale blue underline, some are only underlined on hover, some are never underlined!)

I absolutely love the new design! It's XHTML, it's clean, it uses a dynamic layout, and they even used :focus even if only on the main menu.

The W3C logo covers the S on the Standards button in IE7.

...are you SERIOUS?! Perhaps you clearly haven't noticed how poorly IE supports standards if the standard in question is even supported in the first place!

Very serious. Do you not care how your site looks or functions in IE?

Let's all have our images overlap nav buttons like the W3C does! Well done W3C!

A refreshing look. Navigation is a lot better.

IE? Standards?

While you're running IE7 feel free to take a gander at this...
[acid2.acidtests.org...]

...and when you upgrade to IE8 feel free to take this test...
[acid3.acidtests.org...]

I do care about what people using the outdated and non-standards compliant browsers see; that's why I use conditional comments and absurd amounts of object detection. This will be my 2400th post on the site and I think the best thing that I can share with you is that years ago I learned to limit my exclamations and replace them with questions.

Hmmm. That wouldn't happen if they'd simply used tables for the layout. <action>Ducks for cover</action>

You have me all wrong, I'm in no way defending IE as a GOOD browser. Obviously it's awful...but it's still the most used browser so we have to accomodate.

All I'm saying is they had to have looked at their website in IE and when they saw the logo was covering the nav bar they must have said "oh well".

Well spotted. Obviously they didn't test in below 1024x768. The titles bars under More news... look a bit "unintended" as well.

Please contact us at site-comments@w3.org if you would like to contribute (e.g., by writing a short technology introduction), or if you find any bugs or anomalies.

Please forward your findings to w3c at this email address.

@StoutFiles

Context is a very important communication skill. ;)

I'm all for the W3C site being written in standards and not downgrading their code for IE. More sites need to start abandoning IE-specific support. Looking at the difference between Safari 2 and 3 all I'm going to say is that IE9 better come to town fully loaded!
