W3C. Hire Ben Schwarz now. Making specs nice to look at!

Category: CSSspacer , Standardsspacer


While preparing my HTML WORKSHOP, I’ve been re-reading W3C specs in far further detail than I ever would’ve imagined. The reading experience is far from delightful. Not only is the text the entire browser width in measure, but it’s dense and laborious to read. No wonder browser vendors have traditionally missed subtle details.

The paragraph above is how Ben Schwarz starts off his post on “Moving towards readable W3C specs”. He roped in Anthony Kolber, and the end result is something that is a pleasure to read!:


The W3C should hire these guys to keep going and clean up shop across the specs. Then, when they look beautiful, maybe we can do the other hard work of making them readable ;)
