Me in 2005: I will make a beautiful web 2.0 website
Me in 2020: I will make an ugly but functional web 1.0 website
Type up a document in Markdown, export to HTML, upload to server, *maybe* add 1 line of CSS, grumble a little bit about how a browser should be able to render Markdown
@bgcarlisle ah but the question is... *which* Markdown
@RaoOfPhysics That's pretty cool, though
Thanks for sharing!
@bgcarlisle ugly is the new beautiful, I guess 😛
@bgcarlisle It's unfortunate that browsers are no longer user agents, and user preferences that become default CSS values have been hidden away, if they exist at all. So if a website doesn't come with CSS, probably most would think "what an ugly website" rather than "oh my default settings are bad."
