Shame On Lockergnome

Via Simon Willison, Lockergnome reverts back to a tables based layout. Simon does a good job of reaming Lockergnome for their hideous display of back pedaling web standards.

I just love what Jason DeFillippo said in this release article:

We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on our cutting edge CSS layouts and, while they are definitely fancy-schmancy, they detract quite a bit from our core efforts which are great content and easy access to it.

I’m sorry, but reverting back to this style of markup is a detraction from accessibilty. Enough said.
