Well done guys. Very impressive!

Hi Danny,

thanks for the compliments! We do generally use XHTML 1.0 Transitional, yes. HTML5 isn’t quite ready for public consumption in our eyes yet (but soon, soon). We could go for a strict doctype, and our code would validate in it, but as we can’t always guarantee the output from 3rd party tools it’s safer to stick with transitional. This doesn’t mean the quality of our markup suffers, it’s just pragmatic for the time being.

Now that our new site is live, I can finally talk about development decisions we made. The site last had a makeover in mid-2008 so what we can do has moved on quite considerably, and we’ve tried to take advantage of that where possible.
