XHMTL/CSS Remix: Creative Commons License

Not too long ago, I played with the idea of releasing article content under a Creative Commons (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0) License. At the time, I wanted to host my own copies of the two associated CC license pages. During the process of uploading the pages to my own server, several minor adjustments (regarding image paths, etc.) needed to be made to the source code. After tweaking a few things in the XHTML code, I began snooping around in the pages’ CSS files. Eventually, I found myself rewriting the entire CSS and XHTML files for both documents. Although this sort of activity is not unusual for me to do, I admit that it is borderline obsessive/compulsive and perhaps even a bit paranoid. Nonetheless, the reworked CSS and XHTML documents are cleaner, less redundant, and better optimized (in my humble opinion) than the originals. Further, the remixed pages are fine-tuned with a hyper-critical design aesthetic. To my eye, they present much tighter than the original versions. But hey, that’s what the spirit of Creative Commons is all about, right? Sharing, remixing, and improving content? In any case, redesigning these pages was good fun and good practice, even though I have since decided against licensing any of my content via Creative Commons 1. So, rather than simply deleting these brief redesign exercises, I have decided to post them online and share them with anyone who might be interested in such esoteric dabblings. You never know who might find them useful! ;)
