Frequently asked questions (FAQs) – “if you are writing in a user-centred way, FAQs are at best pointless and redundant. At worst, they are confusing… and still pointless.” (I like FAQs – they show what orgs pathetically *wish* people would ask but never do.)
W3C Proposed Recommendation: longdesc The longdesc squabble returns, like a nasty poo that won’t flush away: “It’s sad that people are spending time on features like this when there are far bigger accessibility problems with the web platform…Sadly it has for authors become easier to deliver beautiful websites if they simply create an endless pile of <div>s than if they actually use semantic markup”.
Somewhat related: Ok, W3C and WHATWG, don’t die, but… – a rant against the complexity of many CSS specs. As someone who writes web pages as well as sees how specifications are made, I’ve sympathy with “Does your solution involve setting several properties on the container, and on the element, and on the elements contained in the element to make them display properly? Your solution is bad”. But I don’t know how to do it better. Or if it can be done better without breaking backwards compatibility with a repeat of the Year Zero “XHTML2” debacle.
