 From <http://w3mix.web-graphics.com/>:

>On December 5, 2002, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announced 
>the launch of their new homepage. Instead of a less usable table 
>layout, the homepage uses XHTML for structure and CSS for layout. 
>This combination allows for a design that is more accessible, 
>degrades in old browsers, and easily transports to different devices 
>such as handheld devices. This redesign could have been a watershed

>design leaves much to be desired-- so much that Mschmidt from 
>Kaliber10000 made a public plea to the W3C:

>>"...try getting a designer involved with your next re-design, and 
>>try creating a site that actually shows the nice & beautiful things 
>>you can do with standards-compatible code"

>There's no reason for us to wait and see if that ever happens. Let's

Apparently "WthRemix" is pronounced "W Threemix," as in the W3 Remix.

Go for it, kids!
