TheNews Becomes Standard Compliant

Filed under: — nortypig @ 10:14 am

The recent dramatic rebuild of graphic designer Jason Carter’s TheNews launched today with a new minimilist look and with XHTML 1.0 Strict, CSS, and powered by WordPress. While its not the eye candy but the white space pushing this design it’s built with a definite eye on being more usable and accessible than the previous one.

It’s encouraging to see the local web development industry becoming more open to the ideal of a more accessible and universal web. So, no tooting because I did the coding, congratulations to TheNews for reaching a greater audience more effectively with this new facelift. I’ve already subscribed to the RSS feed too.

  1. Temporarily have the old TheNews.com.au back up while some work gets finished on the new one so it’ll give you a good idea of the evolutionary step involved.

  2. TheNews.com.au is back up again with slight colour improvements. Sorry for any inconvenience.
