I thought this was beautiful. I can so identify with the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction achieved through doing things this way.

Every now and then, as part of my job, I get to work on building websites… I’ve begun work on a new site… we’ve started from the ground-up. In this case, we’ve also gone with a web-standards based design.
And suddenly, I’m into the learning game, starting from scratch again, checking out resources and remembering what tag goes where. This is the kind of thing I love; knowing what result I want but having to remember how to do it, and thus having to research again, and hopefully drill the code deeper into my memory. The site is nearly done; basic layout, design choices, usability – is all there.
It’s been really satisfying to work on – seeing something come to fruition – and even though I’ve worked with standards-based design before, it was remarkable just how fast it all developed….
I recommend reading the entire post. It isn’t too long, nor uber-techy. And it IS a good website, from 2004 right on through to today!
