 Simple and elegant.

cheers, it certainly is simple and elegant - however a bit too simple (specifically as it's in template php); gives me immediate visions of a wordpress template - and that's more than enough to scare me off! <lol>




Anytime I see embedded style elements within html, that's more than ample warning to make me look elsewhere for the solution -- because IMO that's not a solution.

I find it interesting that the articles states "the separation of business logic from presentation" but then combines content with presentation. I don't see any real gain here.

My efforts are always trying to separate content from function and presentation. Make everything as unobtrusive as you can. Place styling in remote css, client-side javascript enhancements unobtrusively, and use server-side php/mysql to create secure and accurate function to generate the proper html and deliver desired content. I can understand someone wanting to simplify their work, but exchanging one problem for another doesn't cut it for me.
