Why not XHTML?

Durumbrain Durumbrain writes  |  more than 8 years ago

I love the new slashdot design. The fact that it makes use of css is great, but why HTML? With only a few small changes, we would have correct XHTML...

Slashdot is hideous!

Durumbrain Durumbrain writes  |  more than 9 years ago

After having been a quite irregular visitor of ./ for a while, I finally decided to subscribe to the RSS-feed and create an account.

Then it struck me; this site is ugly.

Seriously, take a look a it! Everything still looks like its from the 90's (which isn't strange since everything IS from the 90's). The HTML-design looks bad and is coded in a stupid way (with a-hundred-or-so nested tables). And HTML 3.2?? Why not make a few corrections and adapt to HTML 4 or, preferably, XHTML 1.0. Why are there no Cascading Style Sheets?

Maybe the site was made in a var un-dynamic way from the beginning so that it is really hard to make changes. What do I know? I am but a newcomer.

Maybe I shouldn't complain about one of the best sites ever. That's another thing for me to think about.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
