HTML a thing of beauty

Point of view, Search business — Tags: , — facesaerchteam @ 10:24 am

everybody knows HTML, the stuff websites are made of. HTML - as intended by sir tim berners lee - was a simple construction to makes text a little bit more useful (he called it “hypertext”). It was simple, cool and a disruptive innovation. And for a time, it was good.

Then came the modern - graphical user interface - browsers. And suddenly simple was not good enough and design as added. And simple HTML was misused to create something like tagsoup. An ugly mishmash of tags that fought a never ending war against each other. It was ugly and a crime against technology.

The thing with “never ending war” is, that the war is still ongoing. Startups with HTML sites as ugly as if your grandfather would suddenly have a second puberty. Sites that have HTML so misused that tim berners lee rotates in his grave (actually, he is still alive and i hope he stays so for a long long time, but he would rotate anyway). Believe me, it’s an ugly HTML world out there.

But - where there is darkness there must be light - there is a small PSD2HTML company called psdslicing.com which produces the most beautiful HTML i have ever seen in my whole career. Pure semantic XHTML, CSS, WAI conform code that just makes me (and probably tim) more than happy.

They cost 159$ per PSD (PSD = photoshop image you want to get sliced into beautiful HTML), you get 5 revisions free, and they usually deliver in just 2 working days.

I have worked with webdesign companies which charged for a similar work 1000% more, and delivered a much, much, much, much lower quality work after 20 times the time. (I’m in the business for more than 10 years, i have seen everything….).

So if you need you PSD sliced, just send them your design - pay - and make me, the internet and your users happy.

Their HTML is a thing of beauty!

  1. We understand your wish for improving and enhancing your appearance, your desire for a younger, fresher and more radiant skin. With time, signs of ageing appear due to loss of collagen and elastin fibers. They are expressed by sagging face tissues, skin limpness, decrease of elasticity and the appearance of fine lines that in time deepen into wrinkles. The first signs may appear as early as the age of 20.

  2. These aesthetic treatments are not painful and promise an immediate return to normal daily routine.
    The result is a fresher, younger looking person, with increased confidence and significantly improved quality of life.

  3. Bedbug bites can leave serious damage on the skin. While most bites shouldn’t leave permanent marks, they can scar if you pick, scratch or irritate the bites. These treatments can be effective to cope with these marks and scars.
