ACID2 test

This ridiculous example of "standards compliance" makes me think that CSS2 has turned the original ideas of HTML - markup language, separation of form and content - right into the opposite.

Today it is all about pixel-wise placements and alignments of <div>s and <span>s. I am missing the times when the web was all about content, not about "design".

Perhaps it's time to think it all over again, and go back to pages that can be rendered with lynx (if it could only do tables!).

Can't it do tables yet? ;)

I never liked the interface in Lynx. As soon as w3m came along, I jumped to that. On a 1280x1024 fullscreen terminal, it is still the most beautiful and useable browser IMHO. :)

I started spelling lynx "links" and it works much better now. Try it!

(Kidding, of course. Point is, Lynx has been superceded for ncurses browsing for some time.)
