Open source development works better for… open source!

What a bass-ackwards article title! ComputerWorld reports that open
source development projects are very successful, but commercial
companies are having a hard time adapting their techniques because the
commercial developers… don’t use the software they develop! Hmmm….

Zeldman fixes 47 bugs, with a carriage return

The sad thing is the people who don’t code web pages seem to thing that
there is some cool and powerful way to generate web pages. The sad
thing is that it is just as funky and idiosyncratic and maddening as
any do-it-yourself project involving duct tape.

Bug fix.
IE5/Mac users, rejoice. How a single carriage return fixed 47 display
errors on this site. It might help your CSS layout work better in
IE5/Mac, too. [Jeffrey Zeldman Presents: The Daily Report]
