In the CSS Facts and Myths [webmasterworld.com] thread Brett set a challenge. To make This page smaller and more efficient with CSS.

We talked about it and decided to open it up to the whole board. Here's the criteria:

  • Page must make good use of CSS
  • Must Validate to a strict doctype
  • Must significantly reduce code bloat and load times
  • Must look pretty much the same as it does now
  • Use the page you're looking at now as your start point

Please post example pages with explanations as to why your page works better.

First Prize

A small plastic trumpet to be presented at PubCon and the honor of not only winning but of showing Brett how much better and efficient his pages can be ;)

Have fun!

Nick

I did it and posted a link a few days ago. I guess it got overlooked in the excitement of the update inquest. you can find the link in message #77 on this page: [webmasterworld.com...]

As it stands it doesn't validate to a strict doctype because I left in target="_blank" (because it was in the original) and img border="0" (for the sake of Netscape 4.n) but it could easily be made to validate strictly.

Please try it on various devices and let me know if you can break it.
