Peter K. Sheerin is the Senior Technical Editor for CADENCE magazine, which covers the computer-aided design market. In his free time he operates PushBack.com, an activist site recently converted to a hard-core XHTML Strict/CSS-2 design that still works well with older browsers, and PetesGuide.com, a technology advocacy site so standards-compliant that it exposes the multiple Achilles’ heels of today’s best browsers.
