PimpMyHTML

PimpMyHTMLThe Multipack are throwing a Zen Garden-esque contest called . They really should have called it PimpMyMicroformats given that they’re using the follow :

The rules are pretty straight forward, and as I’m a fan of constraints and AJAX+CSS+XHTML, I’m looking forward to the entries:

  • You can’t change the HTML at all.
  • Use Best Practices of both CSS and JavaScript.
  • Limited to a maximum of 20kb of JavaScript.
  • No more than 5 image files can be used. (If you use your noggin, this isn’t much of a problem.)

And as you’re limited in filesize, it might be worth your while to go check out the forthcoming Mootools and read up on some ideas on exploiting CSS instead of using JavaScript. And while you’re at it, Molly has two articles on microformats definitely worth a gander.
