Styles Council

I just spent an intensely magical two days discussing web standards with Nicole Sullivan, Dan Cederholm, Jeremy Keith, Eric Meyer, Wendy Chisholm, Tantek Çelik, and Ethan Marcotte in Happy Cog’s New York studio. (Photos.) We laughed, we cried, we thin-sliced the changing semantics of the b element.

To keep the wonderfulness flowing, I’ll spend today attending Tantek’s New York City microformats workshop.

    Good question. Follow @t on Twitter and see if there is one. (I won’t be there; it’s a daddy night.)

    I hope you all found a way to bring back the BLINK tag because the Internet has pretty much sucked since it was taken away.

    Agree with @Greg. I like BLINK and MARQUEE tags, and would like to use them again. I have never use those tags since 2001.

    Yeah, I’m sure with Nicole Sullivan there you did discuss the semantics of the b element. She uses it completely in her own way. Or at least I thought she was the only one doing that. Maybe not?

    Nope, Joseph, it turns out I’ve used it in exactly the same way as she. I know of a few others who’ve done the same, too.
