John Allsopp: Message To The Messengers—Props to the old school:
Of late, with the latest version of Style Master released, bedded down, and well received, I’ve been a little nostalgic about the old days of CSS. So I thought I might try to ride that wave a little, cast my mind back over my experience of CSS, and talk a little about some people you really should be grateful to if you work with CSS and web standards. Particularly some you might not have heard of.
There follows a tribute to some of the unsung heroes of the early history of CSS. And if that’s piqued your interest, Lauren Wood’s recent post about DOM Level 3 becoming a W3C Recommendation has some insights in to the early days of the DOM Working Group, which she chaired up until November 2001.
