Something wicked this way comes…

Over the last few days I’ve been reading about the web standards movement. Actually, I don’t know if it’s a movement as such. It’s mostly web designers getting evangelical about a structured approach to designing web sites. In a nutshell, you create the content separately from the presentation – the content goes in the html and the presentation goes in a css file. This makes your site easier to maintain and more compatible with a wider array of browsers.

Having spent all of three days reading about this stuff, I’m thinking that it would be a good idea to redesign this site (if you look at the source html, you’ll see what a big mess it is at the moment) and get it all standardised and structured. To make things even more interesting for myself, I’ve decided to sign up for the May 1st CSS Reboot project. So there you go – in about 10 days, on May 1st, you will be looking at a shiny new Oblong Pictures. I might even go nuts and finally add a page for the Brick Gulch Chronicles film that I made 6 months ago.

CSS Reboot

Now I just need to learn how CSS works…
