  1. Und noch eine weitere Seite, die fehlt, http://www.mollio.org.

    @Andreas, bei css4you.de, “CSS 4 you – die deutsche Seite für Cascading Stylesheets (CSS)” ist mir nicht ganz klar, wieso man

    a) einen solchen Domainnamen wählt f. eine “deutsche Seite”,
    b) einen (englischen) Titel wie “The finest in Stylesheets” nimmt und
    c) die Seite mit Wörtern wie “Downloads”, “User-interface”, etc. spickt.

    Never mind, nur ´n Gedanke.
