Re: the Daily Dartmouth’s new online design

I saw it for the first time this morning and was startled, to say the least, by that garish green.

Is their designer colorblind?

More disturbingly, their designer seems to be stuck in about 1997. Nobody designs new sites with tables and non-validating HTML anymore because they are slow to load, inaccessable, and buggy on too many browsers. If we can do XHTML+CSS, it can’t be that hard.

If the Daily Dartmouth’s designer is reading this post, I ask him or her to take a look here. Please.

Also, this is a really strange lead: “Elizabeth Edwards, wife of North Carolina Senator and Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards, shared her husband’s visions with a group of supporters in an intimate setting in Rockefeller Center on Friday afternoon.”

He’s a political candidate, not a religious guru. And I suppose “intimate” means poorly attended, right?
