Into Action

If Suck were alive and well today, web standards like XHTML and CSS would allow the staff to concentrate on writing. A basic XHTML template would deliver the document structure. CSS would control the look and feel without requiring additional design work per-issue, aside from the preparation of article-specific images. Paragraph tags would be properly used to denote the beginnings and ends of paragraphs, not to force vertical gaps between each line of text. (CSS would do that job.)

In graphical browsers like IE, Mozilla/Netscape, and Opera, style sheets would ensure that Suck looked as its designer intended. Structured XHTML would deliver Suck's content not only to these browsers but also to personal digital assistants (PDAs), screen readers, and text browsers without the accompanying nonstructural hiccups of fake paragraphs and similar hostages to markup-as-a-design-tool.
