Feigning normality since 1973
Depreciation without Replacement
Filed in: Website Management.
The new index page design for issues of TSV, as proudly displayed by the newly added TSV 72 is not valid XHTML. If you run it through a validator, you will get an error.
"Why is it not valid XHTML?!" you may cry in anguish. The reason for this is quite simple - the page numbers are displayed alongside each item using a "value" attribute. If you look at the relevant section of the HTML 4.01 spec you'll see that the "value" attribute has been "depreciated". However the writers of the specification did not give an alternative to "value" that doesn't look like arse.
I tried using css to fiddle with li:before, but didn't like the way it displayed the numbers. I'll demonstrate.
I think it looks so much nicer when the titles line up and the numbers are all right-aligned. I suppose I could do it using tables, but, dammit, that's what lists are supposed to be for.
