CSSHive Feature

Thanks to the team at CSSHive for featuring the 939 Design website. CSSHive is a relatively new web gallery, but built well and managed with passion. Unlike CSS Design Yorkshire, CSSHive does not focus on web standards and compliance as far as code validation, but features many well-designed and well-built websites. Keep up the good work!

Semantic Search

Yahoo has announced it is to adopt key standards of the "semantic web", (as featured in BBC News). This is great news for all web users because a good semantic search should bring more relevance to web page results since the semantic mark-up tells the search engine a lot about the nature and content of a particular web page. Surely this is the future for all search engines, to rely less on links and more on specific content relevance leading to a much richer search experience. 939 Design are into their third year of delivering standards based and valid css websites with semantic mark-up. Everyone catches on to good web practices eventually, even Yahoo!

Boxed CSS - Site of the Week

Boxed CSS have now gone one further for me, after making XTR Game Servers their website of the week for last week, this week it's 939 Design's turn to take the spotlight. Thanks guys, for the appreciation.
