    what do people think??

    Not sure what you’re asking. Most of the active members of this site advocate standards compliant and semantic html mark-up, that seems to be all that page is ‘explaining’.
    Have these notions come as a revelation to you?

    No not a revelation i just found it interesting that someone who advocates using less divs (which i am trying to get to grips with – having suffered from div-itis in the past) is writing in a blog that is littered with them.

    But the author has responded by saying that the majority of the divs in the blog are generated by plugins…not his fault.

    I feel that if somebody is advocating a standard then that is what they should be applying. Maybe that is the problem with web design today…there are too many options.

    People advocate one thing but for speed /laziness/ simplicity they forgot what they advocate.

    I suppose i’m an old fashioned purist…If i can code it i’ll do it, if i can’t then i leave it out.

    Ahhh, I see what you’re getting at – and in that sense I agree with you.
    I too am a purist when it comes to mark-up but I try not to be a fascist, although its a fine line to tread lol. That blogger is a bit of a fool for creating such a post without tidying his code up – but what he says in his actual post is perfectly valid.

    Sometimes it’s great to have that extra <div> for separating some content from each other, sometimes it’s not.
