What the bleep does “minding the Jakob” mean?
August 9, 2005 8:04 AM
I think it had something to do with some of the text Christopher had on his personal site, but since he’s redesigned recently that text is no longer there. I guess we’ll just have to wait for him to explain the phrase himself.

The phrase “minding the Jakob” was indeed on my site (well, splash page) because I had used an image of Jakob where the photo of my face currently resides.
You can take a look at it at this old page if you wish an attempt in seeing the hilarity, but it’s probably not there.

Nice interview. I’m anxious to pick up a copy of the book. Designing CSS Web Pages was the first CSS book I got and learned a ton from it.

This article touched on the shortcomings of web design software like dreamweaver. I have been looking for more in-depth discussion about designing for the web using semantic markup & css within these software environments.
Designing with semantic markup & css as of now is an entirely hand-coded text based process. Web design software could expedite the design process and reduce a lot of redundancy as well as provide a real-time visual design environment, bringing back the visual component to web design. However, these software do not correctly render semantic markup & css, making them useless.
I’m interested to know how designers are using web design software and how they fit into the design workflow.
