Give Raw Pages a Lift

Posted on

We’ve all seen it: the harsh white background, serif fonts, and window-border hugging indicitive of unstyle (or very lightly styled) (X)HTML.  Today I discovered something: it takes very little CSS to take a basic HTML page and give it some flavour (and make it less painful on the eyes).  Just eight lines of CSS.

Not all pages have such CSS, however, and sometimes it might be nice to just hit a button and get some style.  So I created a bookmarklet.  Drag it to your bookmark bar, and next time you see an unstyled page, hit it.  Basic styles will be added instantly.
