Getting Naked on My Birthday

In celebration of CSS Naked Day, Perishable Press has disabled it’s CSS stylesheet for today, April 9th, 2009 (which also happens to be my 37th birthday)! What a great way to celebrate the occasion.

What are you waiting for? Go get naked!! ;)

    Make the site available without the CSS. I missed the day and would love to see it, possibly work with it – like the other themes.

    @Jonathan: If you’re using Firefox, just go to View menu > Page Style > No Style. Voila!

    @Jonathan Ellse: Here is a link (link removed, alternate themes no longer available) to the “Naked” theme I used for CSS Naked Day. Also, as Garrett W. points out, you may view any site without CSS by changing your browser’s settings, or even by using this handy little bookmarklet:


    I use it all the time while designing sites — works a treat in Firefox! ;)

    Brilliant! Thanks for the tips. I use FF of course (except for web-design testing with IE *groan*).

    How do I use the bookmarklet?

    Site looks great minus CSS – well, what else would we expect from you Jeff!

    Keep up the great work!

    @Jonathan Ellse: To use the bookmarklet, create a bookmark to any site in your browser and then replace the URL with the bookmarklet code (make sure it is pasted as a continuous line with no breaks). You may also want to change the name of the bookmark to something like, “Kill CSS” or something descriptive. Most bookmarklets are shared directly as links, but they are so terrible at invalidating a web page that I prefer to just share the code in most situations.
