Beauty and readability are different notions
Redesign. The word is everywhere. It seems that all famous online names have to redesign their blog from time to time. Zeldman for instance did it again recently. For the 3rd time this year, apparently. Yes, Zeldman knows about Web design using CSS. But I can't help asking myself a question about what he did: why is the content area so narrow? On my wide screen, less than a third of canvas' width is used for content... That's a LOT of blank space and obliges the reader to scroll vertically.
