# Site Updates!

Notice anything different about the site? No? Good.

I spent some time today tweaking a bunch of things about the site. The biggest thing is that I stepped out of the year 2003 and brought my site up to standards. It's now 100% valid XHTML 1.1 Strict. What does this mean for you? Probably nothing.

If you use a non-gecko browser nothing should change. The site still gets served up with plain old text/html mimetypes everywhere. However if you use a Gecko based browser- such as SeaMonkey, Camino, or Firefox- you'll be served application/xhtml+xml goodness. The good part is that rendering will be faster for you lucky people, since it doesn't have to use the TagSoup renderer. The bad part is that if I fuck up and use broken XML in one of my entries you'll get an error page. Such is the price we pay for the bleeding edge, I guess.

(Don't worry, I won't intentionally fuck up.)

Ok, so there is one minor visible change. I've placed anchor links next to each story so you can click them and put that headline at the top of your browser. I really don't have any better legitimate use for that, however. But if you like playing with pointless stuff, click the hash marks to the left of a story title to get the anchor for a story.
