One DIV To Size Them All...

For Funsies84 words1 minutes to read

I thought this was clever…

Three DIVs for the design-gods, painting on Macs,
Seven for the usability-lords in their websites of grey,
Nine for Windoze geeks doomed to debug,
One for the Zeldman on his orange page,
In the land of New York where the pundits cry.

One DIV to size them all,
One DIV to pad them,
One DIV to colour them all
And in the browser style them

In the land of W3 where the standards lie…

Hat Tip: Zeldman and Dave
