Jim Amos over at Campbell-Ewald tells me that they just launched a new design for chevrolet.com for 2006. The last launch was a CSS redesign (see Chevrolet Goes Valid), but this time around the site is even more standards compliant than before. This is a great example of a large scale consumer site making use of modern web standards.

Turn off stylesheets, there is a sweet little flash object at the top of the page which is not visible in "CSS-mode". It's filled with some beautiful Latin filler text, how funny. I actually like the previous version a little better, but still, a big company doing standards once and doing them again is always a good thing.

Lol, thanks. We'll get that fixed.

It looks good. It would be really good if the CSS validated too.

Thanks Mike. The site is forever evolving, year-round, so inevitably these errors will come (and go, as we fix them). btw, there is no such font as 'helvectia' ;P
