[css-d] What happened to design?

Sent by Joshua Kaufman on 25 January 2002 15:03


Has anyone else read Chris Casciano's article on the cookie cutter
approach that many are taking to CSS?
http://www.chunkysoup.net/opinion/boringcss/ 

He argues that even though major browsers have become more standards
compliant, most designers aren't exploiting the new found power. 
Instead many are making simple derivatives of templates from glish,
bluerobot and the like.  Zeldman mentioned this article a while back and
noted that Eric is doing some really cool stuff with CSS at CSS/Edge:

Is anyone else using CSS like this?  Will strong use of CSS bring about
a new standard of design?  I'm interested in hearing other thoughts.

This may also be a problem of the gecko engine paying attention to 
"some" white space but not all.  There have been notable problems with

buttons and extra white-space.  Its in Bugzilla, so maybe we'll see
some 
action on this.
