POSH – Plain Old Semantic HTML

November 19, 2007 at 7:19 am Leave a comment

A nice new acronym for a basic concept that should be deeply ingrained into every webdeveloper/frontend developer is making the rounds. POSH – Plain Old Semantic HTML.

To start writing semantic markup, you need to:

  • Validate your HTML
  • Stop using tables for layout
  • Use semantic elements and attributes for their intended purpose
  • Use semantic class names and id values
  • Use as little HTML as will get the job done
