OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

You do NOT waste time with HTML 5 asshattery, do NOT have a major case of divitus and classitus, and actually have semantic markup with separation of presentation from content.

Colors look ok, though a bit washed out. Here's hoping you do NOT make it a crappy fixed width, do NOT declare all the fonts in PX so I have to shove custom user.css at it to even make the page usable, and here's hoping that you might just leverage responsive layout via media queries so instead of screwing around wasting time making custom versions for each and every stupid handheld, you just send the same markup to everybody and adjust it via CSS to each device.

Though I really do cringe whenever people mention off the shelf CMS systems -- I've yet to see one that didn't shove half assed crappy markup down your throat that you either cannot change using the skinning system, or fixing somehow neuters the upgrade path... It's like the people writing CMS and forum softwares don't know enough HTML/CSS to be opening their mouths on the topic.

Though it could be worse, you could have said you were using Turdpress. King of the "What do you mean I don't need ten separate classes on every LI?!?" and "WCAG, what's that?!?"
