Way back in 2003, Jeffrey Zeldman wrote the seminal “Designing with Web Standards”, a book that among other things, encouraged developers not to write code for specific browsers, rather code against web standards that will work in any browser that has implemented the standards. That’s something the Internet Explorer team fundamentally agrees with – writing code once and serving that same markup across browsers.
On the front cover of the book, Zeldman chose to wear a blue beanie. Since 2006, developers have annually donned the blue beanie in support of standards and in honor of Zeldman’s book. This is now the 5th year, and around campus today, we’re pulling on a blue beanie to show our support.
I grabbed a camera this morning and took a shot of some the IE engineering team that work closely with the standards groups sporting beanies.
Here we have (from left to right):
Dean Hachmanovitch, John Hrvartin, Sylvain Galineau , Kris Krueger, John Jansen, Jason Weber, Patrick Dengler, Rob Mauceri.
We even managed to get a beanie in some prominent places within the IE building.
If you support the cause, get on board.

Funniest thing I've read in awhile! Also, while signing up for this site, I got an error with each form field I tabbed to - "An error has occurred. Please contact your system administrator." Chrome/Mac
I'm going to go test some web pages now to make sure they don't puke out in IE and the sorry excuse for a rendering engine in Outlook.
