CSS Naked Day 2010

Although things have been quiet so far this year, I still plan on taking part in CSS Naked Day in 2010. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, CSS Naked Day is:

Where did my Design go?

The idea behind this event is to promote Web Standards. Plain and simple. This includes proper use of (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words. It’s time to show off your <body>.

How to participate

On April 9th, simply remove all CSS from your website, stripping it entirely of its design.

I’m a big proponent of CSS Naked Day and have participated since it’s inception in 2006. I think it’s a great way to promote Web Standards, even if it’s just around our very own community. While I don’t recommend participation on client sites or otherwise high profile projects, I think it’s a nice reminder for those of us in the industry.

  1. Not technically. CSS Naked Day is actually 48 hours long:

    Wait… isn’t that 48 hours?
    That’s correct. CSS Naked Day lasts for one international day. Technically speaking, it will be “April 9th” somewhere in the world for 48 hours. This is to ensure that everyone’s website will be publicly nude for the entire world to see at any given time during April 9.

  2. Oh, man, I was out in the wilderness until now and completely missed the festivities. Luckily, I had put in a script; so my site should have unstyled itself automatically on that day.
