Just when you thought browser compatibility was a goal that could be reached in your lifetime…

Foock yuoo tuu Bork Bork Bork. Two weeks ago, Microsoft started intentionally feeding distorted stylesheets to Opera users on MSN.com. Today Opera strikes back. (139 words) [dive into mark]

Yesterday I was putting the finishing touches on one of my templates to make it XHTML compliant. The idea behind XHTML compliance, at least for me, is to avoid web browser problems. Obviously MSN and Opera have plenty of bugs they could be working on but they spent their time being silly. Opera’s response was pretty clever! When you go to MSN using Opera “Bork Edition”, you will see the page transformed into the language of the famous Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show: Bork, Bork, Bork!

Another tool I have been using is textile from www.textism.com. This tools transforms regular text with the help of small set of block and phrase modifiers into XHTML compliant HTML. It is easy to use and cleans up font annoyances. Its features would be nice to have in Topstyle or Radio.
