Markup Maker is a very convenient way to quickly get a valid (X)HTML structure for web pages you make.

Just paste in your (semantically correct) div ids for the layout you want. Choose if you want inline CSS or a separate file and which Doctype your document should have.
After that simply click on “Convert to XHTML” and you’ll get a nicely formatted HTML & CSS document.

Too Cool for IEI just received word that this blog’s CSS doesn’t cope very good with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer webbrowser. As the only Computer I own is a Mac I can neither verify this, nor hack the CSS to display properly on this particular browser.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience and please do consider to upgrade to one of the more modern & secure alternatives available for free.
