Issue 234

I am in Spain today, as for the rest of the week I'll be at the CSS Working Group meeting. I went for a run this morning, and it felt fairly mild as in Bristol it's been icy. The local runners however were all wrapped up for mid-winter!

Lots of interesting bits and pieces in the newsletter today, including a couple of personal projects which aim to produce a new design each week. Both should be fun to follow this year.

Would you / your company like to sponsor the newsletter? I have exactly zero sponsors right now, and it isn't inexpensive to send to over 10,000 people. While I love producing this weekly dose of CSS goodness, it would be great to cover the costs. Take a look at the sponsorship page if you would like to share something with my readers.
