Naked Librarians

Thanks to Dorothea for pointing out that it’s CSS Naked Day. Simply put, you toss up your website without a stylesheet. Then you see if you can still read it and use it. Then you think about web standards and intentional usability and good web design. It’s time to show off your <body>, for a good cause. If you don’t normally look at this website through anything other than an RSS reader come check it out.

    Another option, for those sites who just didn’t hear about the day is to disable all css styles via the WebDeveloper plugin for firefox (assuming you’re running firefox).

    [...] Jessamyn points out that today is CSS Naked Day, a day to shut off our CSS style sheets and remind ourselves to keep everything accessible without styes.  The site will look fancy again tomorrow!   [...]

    Timely post for me, we were just talking about the usability of our library pages for Jaws (and other sight-impaired users)… Your blog looks like it would pass the test, though?

    You can view a page without stylesheet by View -> Page Style -> No (no need for plugins).

    Try switching images and scripts off to see many high-street-chain store sites get mashed.
