I know I’m not the best coder out there, but I always try to have my code to as semantically correct as possible and to be always valid on the Doctype I’m using. It is how I was trained by my master on my first job as a web designer.
Then, suddenly my html/css codeÂ â€” my baby turns into an ugly monster in the hands of others. Ugly monster? How?
- semantically incorrect horrible
- crazy margins and paddings
- inline CSS code on the html mark-ups
- reliance to !important CSS overrides
- even the code’s crazy indentions
Call me crazy but I do treasure something I code, it is like an artwork to me, and to be that horrible quite disappoints me. And to be unable to do anything about it but only use CSS !important to overwrite such code really kills me.
I do know that there is a CMS being used, but I know developers of such CMS developed some flexibilities for this. Of course they’d want to showcase pretty websites both in and out which are using their product. I did search for websites using the very same CMS, and they are fabulous both in looks and code. You get the idea.
