The First Annual CSS Naked Day

Dustin Diaz has announced the first annual CSS naked day to take place on the 5th of April. I had wanted to announce my participation in the event prior to my CSS turning off, but I didn’t get the chance to and now it’s gone.

Some of you may be wondering why I started early – well I haven’t really. You see I used the PHP function provided by Luke Wertz to disable my CSS automatically and, as mentioned by Dustin, this will turn the CSS off as soon as it is the 5th of April anywhere in the World, and keep it turned off until it’s no longer the 5th anywhere. In other words it’s an annual CSS 2 naked days.

To find out what it’s all about have a read of the announcement, however it’s summed up quite well here by Håkon Wium Lie, the creator of CSS:

This is a fun idea, fully in line with the reasons for creating CSS in the first place. While most designers are attracted by the extra presentational capabilities, saving HTML from becoming a presentational language was probably a more important motivation for most people who participated in the beginning.

Håkon has pledged to take part, along with several hundred other mental people 🙂

In a little under 48 hours my CSS will return in a blaze of glory, in the meantime you get to see a more attractive ap4a.
