Eating my own dogfood

I know I have relatively recently redesigned my weblog, and despite my liking the design I have very much, I feel it is important to adopt an HTML and design standard I have been advocating for over a year now. For shame that it has taken me so long to do so.

Feel free to follow along with the design as it progresses. The the assistance of a few great tools, I will deploy a variant to one of the my favorites themes from The Style Contest: Red Curves.

But one of the other advantages of using this HTML standard that virtually all of Six Apart weblogs are based on, as well as the ones The Style Contest was based on is that it gives me the ability to change my design much more easily, or even to let my users select their favorites style in which to view my weblog.

But also, one of the best ways to improve a product is to use it yourself. What better way to learn what works and what doesn’t?

WOw! It looks great so far! Love the footer modifications you made - very clean.

On a side note, I cannot stress how great of a tool Color Schemer Studio is. It's a bargain at twice the price.

Wow this does look nice. Great finally seeing what the 6aparters do with the standard templates. I know a few others have talked about this, but not enough of them do and then explain how they do it.

I love what you did with the 3rd column
