RISC OS "Gosh! I didn't realize how much discussion my original article would create. A lot of people seemed to accuse me of living in cloud cuckoo land, whereas a lot more agreed with me. I think those who disagreed have either never used RISC OS or just liked a good rant! In either case, I feel compelled to write a short follow up article clarifying some of the points I made in the original article - all of which were perfectly valid." Read the follow up article.

" Lean mean code, not possible if you are going to use tables all over the places. "

In his defense, the majority of the world still uses IE 6.0 and everyone knows how well it does without the use of tables.

I don't mind people using tables. But I just found it amusing that he would brag about his markup when it was actually quote amateurish.

Also the layout he uses on his site is not difficult with pure CSS in IE. Yahoo has even made it dead easy. They've done all the work for simple CSS grid type layouts that are compatible with major browsers. One day I'll get around using their work but check out: -

- http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/grids/
- http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/reset/
- http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/fonts/

Maybe someone should email him those links.
