I’ve just applied for my European Health Insurance Card (no more E-111s!), and thought “gosh, isn’t this font small? and isn’t the menu highlight poorly written? that’s some bad CSS there I reckon – let’s take a look at the source”.
So I did.
Five minutes later, I came around.
At various points in the source, there are four HTML Doctypes declared, each one followed by opening
head, one of them even looks like this
<html:html locale="true">, which is just plain bizarre given that it’s not an XML document, and
locale="true" isn’t even a valid language identifier. I just can’t even imagine the system that outputs such shitty markup – no wonder there’s no “This site written and designed by” stamp on it!
And well, you just have to look at it to see what I mean.
