CSS float away


Sometimes the best content on Wikipedia is what you’re not reading. From the Cascading Style Sheets Talk page:

CSS is a headache. I wish CSS would {float:away;}

What a beautiful image, on so many levels.

(And the obligatory note for pedants. Yes, the promise of separation of content and presentation was wonderful, pity it didn’t completely happen. I coded my fair share of spacer GIFs and tables in primary school in the 1990s. My decade+ experience with CSS informs my disappointment in it as a language).
