Well fancy that, both mezzoblue and stopdesign redesigns launched in the same week. I'm not going to pass judgment on either of them in fact because, well, to be honest, Bono-esque, "we are not worthy". One thing I am in admiration of about Doug's redesign though is the fact that his HTML was so nicely marked up that he seems to have been able to do the redesign pretty much only by changing the CSS: something we've all been extolling as one of the virtues of CSS for some time now, but speaking for myself at least, only now getting to the stage where this can be a reality. Bravo to both though: when you have such a high profile site this is actually a really brave thing to do, as explained by D. Keith Robinson here.
One question though........why did Doug get rid of all uses of FIR and its cousins?
