37signals has been redesigned in pure XHTML 1.0 with a CSS-driven layout. People whom I have met at various speaking engagements have always been hesitant to adopt a purely CSS-driven layout and for good reason; they are concerned about their users with browsers that don't support this type of layout. All I can say is, "Remember when some browsers didn't support cell spanning in tables or table cell background colors? What do you think they did when sites like Yahoo and CNN didn't render properly?" I guess there will always be people who use older browsers, just like there are people who still use the DOS based version of WordPerfect on Windows 3.0 to write articles. There is nothing we can do about that. Denial is brought forth by the lack of awareness. [from Zeldman]
