IFRAME not valid XHTML?

That's what the XHTML validator says. Dammit - I like iframes! I'm leaving it in, this site will not validate as XHTML 1.0 until today leaves the front page - oh well. :-(

Using another stylesheet switcher.

I've seen this stylesheet switcher before, but now I've found a good explanation about it. The problem I see with it is that it won't work in Opera, and probably not Konquerer either. The current one on this site works on all browsers, but doesn't allow me to validate my css.

To use ALA's stylesheet switcher, I'd have to change my stylesheet references from using @import url(...) to <link rel="stylesheet> src="...". The problem with this is that I use the @import syntax so Netscape 4 doesn't apply a stylesheet, and this site is still readable. Turn off the stylesheet to see what a NN4 user sees. If I use <link rel="stylesheet> src="...", then NN4 will apply the stylesheet.

The solution, as I learned at the conference last week, is to split up my stylesheets into a simple version and a sophisticated version - as explained by Zeldman. I might do this, but it seems like it might be waste to even care about NN4 users since no one visiting this site has used NN4 this month.

Scope Creep.

Have we run out of strategies for fighting this evil scourge? Is it hopeless? Maybe not. Hal Helms commits a little heresy at A List Apart.
